Instructions

  1. For the dressing, place avocado and yogurt in a blender and blend until smooth. Add the chicken stock, garlic, parsley, cilantro, and lime juice and pulse until smooth. Add salt to taste.  
  2. Divide the ingredients among the mason jars, starting with 2 tablespoons of the dressing. Then layer the vegetables, egg, cheese, turkey, and ham, ending with the lettuce on top – as much as you can squeeze into the jar.
  3. When ready to serve, shake the jar, unscrew the cap and pour the contents into a bowl. Lightly toss so the dressing is well distributed.

 

Tips: 

  • Salads can refrigerated for up to 4 days. 
  • Any glass jar will work if it has a wide opening.
