Mason Jar Power Salad with Chickpeas & Tuna

From: EatingWell.com, March 2018

This power salad will keep you fueled for hours, thanks to 26 grams of protein and 8 grams of fiber. Tossing the dressing and kale, and then letting it stand in the jar, softens it enough so you don't need to massage or cook it to make it tender.

It’s the perfect make ahead lunch! The flavors all go so well together and I love that you can dress it and have it all ready to go the day before so in the morning you can just grab and go. I think next time I will add some sliced almonds for a little extra nutty flavor, will definitely be making it again
