Asian chicken mason jar salad with rotisserie chicken, edamame, carrots, peppers and an easy soy ginger dressing are perfect for a healthy make-ahead lunch!
Hello again to Monday… how do you always sneak up on me?!
We had a fun weekend of just me and the kiddos while my husband was away. M and I did a Facebook Live with some of our favorite cookout sides. We took those to our neighbors house that night for a little get together.
(They knew I was flying solo for a few days so they threw me a party 😂 Sure sign of some good friends!)
We also did a lot of building blocks and artwork and bike riding and puzzles… and I may have slipped them their iPads to get a few moments of peace. #survival
A new week is here though and I’m gonna try to get after it! Starting with having some yumminess on hand!
I have been ALL about the mason jar salads recently. Have you tried them?
They are so easy to throw together when I’m just home from the store, or I’m cutting up veggies for dinner, or otherwise just playing and wasting time in the kitchen. 😉
I pull out some ingredients, layer them up and I’ve got some gorgeousness sitting in my fridge, just waiting to be devoured for lunch that week.
It’s especially good for me because my lunch break is spent picking up the kids from school or camp and then catching up on my deadlines for my job as a health/nutrition editor so sometimes it’s creeping on 2:30 and I want lunch ASAP!
And this here is one of my favorites:

Let’s break this baby down…
We’ve got rotisserie chicken (hello easy! – or use any leftover grilled or roasted chicken you have on hand), steamed tender edamame, matchstick carrots, pretty, sweet bell peppers strips and crunchy romaine lettuce, all with an easy and super addictive soy ginger dressing.
You could totally add some chopped peanuts here too. I’m doing that next time for sure. 👍
