Make ahead salad recipe

These salads are perfect for make ahead meals to bring on a picnic (yay, summer!) or to work, or even for prepping food ahead of time for a party.

I love putting them in mason jars (click here to see my favorite jars), but don&rsquot worry if you don&rsquot want to shell out the cash for name brand jars &ndash just save your old pickle and spaghetti sauce jars.

Sterilize them in some boiling water and you&rsquore good to go! Upcycling for the win! Strawberry Spinach Mason Jar Salads are so crazy easy to make and super versatile.

I love (love love love) that I can make them on Sunday night and they&rsquoll stay fresh and delicious all week long.

This little dude kept sneaking tastes of the blueberries and strawberries for himself while I was preparing the salads. He turns three in a few weeks (three. ) and calls them &ldquostrawbabies&rdquo and &ldquoboobubbies&rdquo &ndash it&rsquos basically the cutest thing ever.

UPDATE &ndash he&rsquos four now. Four, you guys. (((SOB)))

Spinach Strawberry Pecan Salad

On Sundays, I start our weekly meal prep by washing lettuce and preparing our salad protein for the week. I often cook and slice a few pounds of herbed grilled chicken and make a delicious low carb salad dressing.

Our favorite flavor profile this month is spinach strawberry pecan salad with homemade balsamic dressing. Strawberries and balsamic vinegar is classic pairing and the sweet crunch of pecans and earthy flavor of spinach all combine to create something wonderful.

Some recipes for this salad combination call for candied pecans. I love ‘em, but I think toasted pecans or even raw pecans are just as good. I toast them in the oven on a sheet pan at 350 degrees F until lightly browned and fragrant (or toaster oven) and use them throughout the week.

As far as cheese options for this delicious spinach strawberry pecan salad, salty and/or tangy varieties do well. We like feta cheese, goat cheese, or an aged cheese like Parmesan or Asiago.

Another dressing that would be great with this salad is this low carb raspberry vinaigrette recipe.

If you like steak salad recipes, try this steak and plum salad with balsamic reduction. It’s another great flavor combination of beefy, peppery, sweet-tart and salty!

Berry Spinach Salad

This is my go-to salad for an easy 5-minute salad recipe. It combines my favorite salad ingredients – spinach, berries, pecans and goat cheese – and it presents beautifully.

If you follow me on Instagram stories, it’s the spinach salad recipe I whip up most often. Who can resist those tender baby spinach leaves and juicy vibrant berries?

This salad is great for the warm weather months of spring and summer when you’re craving a light and fresh recipe. But if you’d like to add protein, you could easily toss on some shredded chicken or pulled pork for a more filling meal.

Strawberry and Spinach Salad with Balsamic

For the last two weeks, I&rsquove been spending blissful Tuesday afternoons in a sunny field picking strawberries with my son. Fresh-picked strawberries are nothing like those from the grocery store. They are juicy, sweet and red all the way through. I could eat these garden rubies for days on end&hellip

The only problem with fresh-picked strawberries is that they have an exceptionally short shelf life. I guess that&rsquos why they sell those hard, under-ripe, white, strawberry-like things at the grocery store&hellip Fortunately, I know some great strawberry storage tips that keep fresh-picked strawberries tasting fresh for a number of days. The ones pictured here had already been in my refrigerator for 48 hours and they still look as if they were just picked!

My recipe for Strawberry Spinach Salad with Balsamic is so good that it&rsquos deserving of some of my lovingly-picked berries. This salad has been making it into my dinner rotation weekly and will continue to do so until the end of strawberry season. It&rsquos so good my 5-year-old ate it (spinach included) without a quibble! The juicy fresh berries with spinach, feta, and toasted almonds pair deliciously with my recipe for Homemade Balsamic Vinaigrette to create a sweet and nutty explosion of flavor. Not to mention, this salad is quick and easy to make!

Feeling extra hungry? I recommend grilling up some chicken breast, lightly seasoned with olive oil, salt, and pepper. Slice it up and serve it warm on top to take this salad to the &ldquosatisfying dinner&rdquo level.

Now back to those perfectly-ripened berries. It would really be a shame for them to spoil after being so lovingly picked. So I&rsquove included my tips for keeping your strawberries fresh.

Tips For Keeping Your Strawberries Fresh:

Do not wash before storing. If they are wet from the field, lay them on a towel to dry for an hour or two.

Store strawberries in a large dish that has been lined with paper towels. Arrange the strawberries in a single layer and touching each other as little as possible. If you must stack your berries in two layers, place the larger and heavier berries on the bottom and the smaller ones on the top.

Loosely cover the dish with plastic wrap, so that air can circulate into the container. If you see moisture begin to accumulate under the plastic wrap, remove it. Store in the refrigerator for a few days.
