  • 4 cups chopped romaine lettuce
  • 4 cups fresh baby spinach leaves
  • 4 hard boiled eggs chopped
  • 1 can chickpeas rinsed and drained
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes halved
  • 1 avocado pitted and cubed
  • 4 ounces Roth Cheese Flavor Ups
    single-serve blue cheese crumbles
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley


  • 1 small shallot roughly cut
  • ¼ cup red-wine vinegar
  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper


  • Prepare the dressing by placing all the ingredients in a small food processor or blender, and allow the mixture to emulsify. Divide the dressing equally between four jars.
  • Place the moist vegetables and firm ingredients in the second layer on top of the dressing, including the tomatoes and chickpeas. I would also recommend adding the avocado here so the acidity from the vinaigrette helps to slow down the browning.
  • Place the more delicate ingredients in the third layer, including the eggs and the blue cheese (if using).
  • Finally add the leafy greens on the top, including the spinach, romaine lettuce and parsley; then seal the jars tight.
  • To eat, just flip the jar into a large bowl and enjoy!



Storage: These salads will keep sealed in the fridge for 4 or 5 days. Keep them upright in the fridge so that the dressing doesn't mix with the greens.
Equipment: These are my favorite mason jars (Amazon affiliate link) for meal prep. They are each 32 ounces, which I found to be the perfect salad serving size. And they come in a set of 4, which works well for Monday thru Thursday meal prep.
Substitutes: For best results, follow the recipe as is. However the salad itself is very adaptable so feel free to add or change any of the ingredients.
