Veggie salad in a jar, quick, easy, tasty 😉

Serves 2


  • 1 cup cooked quinoa
  • ½ small can of chickpeas, drained + rinsed
  • 4-6 asparagus stalks, trimmed

  • 1/4 of a fennel bulb, trimmed to the root + sliced
  • handful of baby rocket
  • ¼ cup feta cheese
  • a few sprigs of mint
  • ¼ cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon honey

1. Make the dressing; Place the vinegar, mustard and honey in a small mixing bowl. Slowly drizzle in about 3 tablespoons of olive oil while whisking. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Divide the dressing between two glass jars.

2. Divide the quinoa between the two jars. Then add the chickpeas on top of the quinoa.

3. Season the asparagus fennel and radishes with salt and pepper and a drizzle of olive oil. Place on a grill or grill pan on medium high and grill until browned on all side, about 5-8 minutes. Slice the asparagus into bite-size pieces and place all the veggies in the jar on top of the chickpeas.
