Zucchini Quinoa Mason Jar Salad March 06 2018, 0 Comments

Zucchini noodles aka zoodles are one of my favorite ingredients. They're a great pasta alternative because they're low in calories and carbs. They're also gluten-free and contain more vitamins and minerals than traditional pasta. In this recipe, I used zoodles in place of lettuce and the results were delicious! 


  • 2 large zucchinis
  • 1/2 cup of dry quinoa
  • 1 1/2 cup of grape tomatoes
  • 1 bell pepper
  • 1/2 cup of shredded carrots
  • 1/2 cup of feta cheese
  • 1/4 cup of sunflower seeds
  • 5oz olive oil and vinegar dressing


  1. Start by cooking the quinoa: bring the 1/2 cup of quinoa and 1 cup of water to a boil and then cover and let sit for 15 mins or until nice and fluffy. Refrigerate until cool.
  2. Prep the veggies: chop the bell pepper, cut the tomatoes in half, and spiralize the zucchini. 
  3. Layer the ingredients evenly across 5 mason jars in this order: dressing tomatoes, bell peppers, carrots, quinoa, feta cheese, zucchini noodles, sunflower seeds. 
  4. Store upright in the fridge and enjoy all week long!
