Print

Ingredients

For the dressing:

1 clove garlic, peeled and minced

2 teaspoons of Dijon mustard

1/4 cup of extra-virgin olive oil

2 tablespoons of white wine vinegar

Salt and pepper

 

For the salad:

1/4 cup of Patience Fruit & Co Dried Cranberries, sweetened with apple juice

1/2 cup of toasted slivered almonds

2 green onions, minced

4 cooked bacon slices, chopped finely (or back bacon)*

4 cups of raw broccoli florets (about 1 head of broccoli)

Preparation time 15 minutes
Cooking time None Portions 4-cup jars

This recipe goes beyond the ordinary leafy salad. Broccoli is perfect for a salad in a jar because it stays green and crunchy for up to a week. You can eat it raw, or you can blanch it before putting in your jar. Slivered almonds are an excellent source of vegetable-based proteins. Dried cranberries and bacon give the salad a sweet-and-salty touch that makes it irresistible.

To store the salad, any 1-litre (4-cup) glass jar you have on hand will do. Our favorites are the ones that have a wide opening. For a children’s version, you can use a smaller plastic container that fits the size of their appetite.

Steps

  1. For the dressing:
    In a bowl, whisk all the ingredients together. Season with salt and pepper. Divide between 4 4-cup jars.

  2. For the salad:
    In each jar, layer the cranberries, slivered almonds, green onions, bacon, and broccoli. Close the jars.

  3. To serve, shake the jars vigorously so to combine the salad ingredients and dressing. Transfer to a serving plate or enjoy straight from the jar.

Recommendations

* Back bacon (or Canadian bacon) is twice as lean as regular bacon and looks more like ham. It’s a great way to substitute the saltiness of bacon with less fat ending up on your plate.
