Eddie's Salad Dressing:

Mason Jar Salad:


Special equipment:
a 16-ounce mason jar
  1. For Eddie's salad dressing: Put the parsley, olive oil, vinegar, honey, basil, oregano, tarragon, garlic and some salt and pepper in a food processor and puree until smooth.
  2. For the mason jar salad: Start by placing 1 to 2 tablespoons of the salad dressing (or any amount you desire) in the bottom of a 16-ounce mason jar. Next, build the salad by placing the proteins--the chicken and garbanzo beans--in the jar first. After that, layer the remaining ingredients in the jar (try color coordinating for presentation): the red onion, zucchini, carrot, cucumber, bell pepper, pumpkin seeds and feta. Finish by packing the lettuce and kale on top. Seal and refrigerate.
  3. To serve, flip over on a bowl or plate, mix everything together and dig in.

Cook’s Note

I used a mandolin to thinly slice the ingredients, but you can also use a sharp knife.
