Recipe type: Salad
Cuisine: American
Serves: 4 servings
  • 1 lb chicken breasts, cooked and chopped (Rotisserie chicken works great!)
  • 1 package (8 oz) cherry tomatoes
  • 1 cucumber, sliced
  • 2 apples, sliced
  • 4 green onions, sliced
  • 2 cups lettuce leaves
  • 1 lemon
  • 4 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • ½ tsp salt
  1. Put apple slices in a bowl. Cut ¼ of the lemon and squeeze over the apple slices, and toss to coat. Lemon juice will prevent apple slices from browning.
  2. Make a dressing: In a cup, add olive oil, Dijon mustard and salt. Squeeze the remaining ¾ of the lemon into that cup. Whisk oil, mustard and lemon juice with a fork until combined.
  3. Pour the dressing on the bottom of 4 mason jars.
  4. Next, layers the ingredients into the mason jars in the following order: cherry tomatoes, chicken, cucumber slices, apple slices, green onion and lettuce.
  5. Close the mason jars and keep in a refrigerator for up to 5 days.
  6. To serve the mason jar salad, invert it onto a plate.
