These are the absolute perfect packable lunch! I made mine in 16 oz mason jars and you’ll definitely want containers at least that size. The order you layer these is important, make sure you put the dressing on the bottom and then veggies that won’t absorb all of it (I did peppers then tomatoes), that way the dressing is still there and ready to coat everything; just shake it up!
I also included my pesto recipe, it’s lighter in calories & fat than traditional pesto but still has a ton of flavor. I used lime juice in the recipe to thin it out so it’s more of a dressing than a sauce.
There’s so many delicious, healthy ingredients you could use to customize this but here’s a few of my favorites:
- Veggies: spinach, cucumber, artichoke, sun dried tomato, broccoli, carrot shreds, celery
- Protein: edamame, egg whites, tuna/chicken/turkey, chickpeas, almonds, pecans, kidney beans, walnuts
- Fruit: blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, cranberries, pomegranate seeds, peaches
