Vegan Salad in a Jar. Make-Ahead Bliss

Vegan Salad in a Jar. Make-Ahead Bliss
Salad. In a jar. I totally get this one. A while back (and maybe still) there was a spirited "foods in a jar" trend hovering around the food blogs. ..But salad in a jar? The Daily Muse's post "The Best New Way to Bring Your Lunch" introduced me to the "Mason Jar Salad" concept. And as I showed in my Vegan Cobb Salad, I love lining salad ingredients up in an orderly fashion. ..actually, doing a "vegan cobb in a jar" would be pretty fantastic. Fresh Factor? "The best part is you can make five salads at a time, and they’ll stay fresh for the whole week—just grab and go on your way out the door! ..considering my crazy book writing schedule lately, the part that really stuck out was the "make ahead" concept. Well just so you know, it hasn't been a week yet. But as of now these salads look and taste AMAZING. Here are the four jars I assembled. Layering Salad Jars: Other: grains and pasta are nice add ins. There are no exact "rules" and that is the fun part. My recipes... Related:  recettesSalads

Addictive Brussels Sprouts Salad The second I laid eyes on this salad, Brussels sprouts jumped to the top of my grocery list. I had to have it. I’m not sure I’ve ever been this motivated to make a salad before! Apparently the recipe serves 8. And we are off! Cut the ends off the sprouts. Get the walnuts toasting in a little pan on the stove. You can use a food processor, mandolin or a knife to shred the sprouts. My eager fingers were a little too close to the blade. Put the olive oil, apple cider vinegar & mustard in a little jar. SHAKE IT UP. Because I used a mandolin, there were little leaves that didn’t get sliced. Finely grate your cheese. Put the shredded sprouts into a big mixing bowl. Pour the dressing over the top. Dig in. Don’t be shy. Oh! serves 8 (recipe adapted slightly from Shauna at Gluten Free Girl) 24 Brussels sprouts, shredded1/2 cup Parmigiano-Reggiano, finely grated 1 cup toasted walnuts, in pieces9 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil3 tablespoons apple cinder vinegar2 teaspoons Dijon mustardsalt & pepper

S'mores ice cream Wake up at 4:16AM, go back to sleep. Wake up exactly 45 minutes later, roll over and accidentally knee Thom in the ribcage. Don’t apologize because he’s asleep and what difference would it make, anyway? Scoot a little closer. Get out of bed before he realizes you just dug your bony knees into his ribcage on purpose. Wait much too long for the elevator at 6AM. Today is going to be awesome. Notes: If you’re really into the flavor of graham crackers, I recommend skipping the mix-ins and just savoring the grahammy goodness.

Grilled Watermelon & Fennel Salad with Charred Lemon Vinaigrette This unique grilled summer salad is the result of a category three brainstorm and a little flavor research. I've long wanted to try grilling watermelon, and I finally decided to actually go for it last weekend. Once I made that decision the next question was what I'd do with it. I needed some sort of dish, and I came up with this with the help of one of my favorite go-to resources, The Flavor Bible. This reference is indispensable for situations like this where you have a flavor and need to find other flavors and ingredients to accompany it. In my research I found that fennel pairs well with watermelon, and red onion, lemon and feta work well with fennel. This didn't last long, and the ladies of the house told me to put it on the "Make That Again!" MethodQuarter the watermelon slice, arrange the wedges in a single layer in a gallon zip-top bag, and freeze for about two hours. Cut out as much of the core of each fennel quarter as you can while leaving enough to hold the layers together.
