Clever and visually appealing! 


Just flip it over, watch the dressing run down, and dig into this veggie-packed mason jar salad. 


Chickpea Pasta Salad in a Jar




1/4 very small onion, finely chopped
2 tbsp. red wine vinegar
2 tbsp. olive oil

Salt and pepper

1/4 c. canned chickpeas, rinsed
1 c. grape tomatoes, halved
2 tbsp. kalamata olives, halved
1 c. cooked spiral pasta
1 1/2 c. baby arugula, chopped
2 tbsp. crumbled feta
  1. In a 1-quart jar, shake onion, red wine vinegar, and oil, and a pinch each salt and pepper. Add chickpeas and gently shake to coat.
  2. Top with tomatoes, olives, pasta, arugula, and feta. When ready to serve, turn upside down and let sit for 2 minutes for the dressing to run over the rest of the ingredients.

Tip: Prepare your jar as directed and refrigerate for up to 2 days. Let sit out at room temperature for at least 10 minutes (this allows the oil to become liquid again) before turning over and dressing

You dont  need a recipie.  Just throw in your meat and veges and favoriate dressing.   i made some with salad tomatoes, black olives, bell peppers,  TUNA  and a bottle of Newmans Own cesar dressing( more of a vinagrette) and it was soooooo good
