Mason jar salads
Mason jar salads are the latest trend in healthy eating. They are a great way to have a fresh and healthy lunch at work or on the go. You will impress your colleagues when they see your colourful jar in the staffroom fridge!
- 25 grams butter
- 2 leeks, finely sliced
- 1½ cups pearl barley
- ¼ cup dry white wine
- 300 grams pumpkin, chopped into 1-2cm chunks
- 4 cups vegetable or chicken stock, heated
- ¾ cup grated Parmesan cheese
It's so easy to pick your favourite salad ingredients and get creative with colour and flavours. Start with the dressing and then add the heaviest and most non-absorbent ingredients. Work your way up through the lighter ingredients and finish off with the salad greens.
