Cranberry Pecan Quinoa Salad in a Jar

Hello, hello!  I promised that I would be sharing a ton a salad recipes this summer and we are starting with an absolute favorite today!  This Cranberry Pecan Quinoa Salad in a Jar is hands down a must try.  All of the ladies at our salad parties agree that this salad is amazing and delicious.  So here it is my friends…

When creating our weekly salads in a jar we simply toss ingredients in our jars without measuring really.  So I am going to do my best to guess how much of each ingredient went into this salad.  You can add or take away ingredients as you wish.  I ate this with creamy yogurt dill dressing but you can simply add your favorite salad dressing.  Many of the girls added strawberries to this for a delicious hint of sweet and salty.  These salads travel well and are perfect for meal prepping lunches on the go.
