Asian Peanut Noodle Salad Jars

Asian Peanut Noodle Salad Jars

I have made many salad jars in the past 2 years, but these Asian Peanut Noodle Salad Jars have taken the spot as my firm favourite. They’re creamy, tangy, crunchy, and full of texture and flavour.

Salad Jars are one of the best ways to meal prep in my opinion. They’re such a great concept because the salad stays fresh until you’re ready to eat and it won’t get soggy. To ensure this is the case, the dressing always goes at the bottom, followed my the least absorbent ingredients (such as carrots, red cabbage, edamame), then grains/noodles/pasta, protein, and leafy greens or herbs at the top.
