Mason Jar Spinach Salad

Spinach is one of those leafy greens that I crave deep in my bones.  More than kale or chard, I simply cannot have enough spinach!  This mason jar salad is an ode to that and stuffed with other good-for you veggies and nuts.  I added a little Dijon mustard to the dressing and its tang ties all the ingredients together--from the sweet, smokey tomatoes to the sugary peas to the peppery radishes. Don't worry if you feel like you are stuffing the spinach leaves into the jar at the end--they'll be fine; you just want to make sure to pack that jar with as many yummy veggies as you can.

Ingredients:

1 cup extra firm tofu, chopped

2 cups sundried tomatoes, diced

1 cup radishes, sliced

1 cup sugar snap peas, diced

4 cups spinach

1 cup pepitas

1/4 cup apple cider vinegar

1/3 cup extra virgin voile oil

1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

salt to taste (optional)

Combine apple cider vinegar, olive oil, mustard, and salt if desired in a small mason jar and shake until combined.  Divide dressing between four mason jars evenly.  Then proceed to layer each ingredient evenly between 4 mason jars, starting with the tofu and ending with the spinach. Store in the fridge.  When you're ready for your mason jar meal, simply shake the jar to spread the dressing around.  You can eat straight from the jar or pour it on a plate.  Makes 4 servings.  Enjoy!
