This Mason Jar Niçoise Salad is easy, delicious, and perfect for meal prepping! It’s a creative spin on the classic Niçoise Salad — the mason jar simplifies lunches, since it makes the salad easier to transport. This salad is also Whole30 and Paleo! It has green beans, eggs, vegetables, and a lemony vinaigrette!
I did not have high hopes for this salad, but it was surprisingly good! I love potatoes and eggs, so it stands to reason that I would love this salad. My take on Niçoise Salad has a lemon-chive vinaigrette, green beans, tuna, olives, potatoes, eggs, and radishes. If you layer the ingredients correctly, the dressing will stay on the bottom and nothing will get soggy! I did not have room for lettuce in my jar, so I filled a separate container with chopped romaine. At lunchtime, I poured the contents of the jar onto the romaine. Done!
There are a multitude of flavors and textures in this salad! I hate boring salads with a passion, so this is one of my favorites! It has protein, fat, carbs, and (obviously) vegetables, but it also has a ton of flavor. The dressing is perfectly acidic, and it’s the perfect complement to the green beans. The boiled potatoes are not *boring* when combined with the rest of the salad, and the boiled eggs are . . . well, they aren’t really that special. If you hate boiled eggs, this is not the salad for you. You can’t really have Niçoise salad without boiled eggs. ); I happen to love boiled eggs, so I loved this Mason Jar Niçoise Salad!
As I mentioned last week, my school’s prom was this past Saturday! I went in with pretty low expectations, which left a ton of room for improvement! (haha) I actually had a great time with my friends, but my favorite part was getting ready/eating dinner before the dance. (Does anyone actually like the dance best?)
Anyway, that’s behind us now (phew). I hope you all enjoy this recipe, and let me know if you make it! You can find me on Instagram at @mysweetpotatolife, so be sure to tag me if you make this recipe. Happy Monday!
