1. Gather the ingredients

  • 1 mason jar

Salad:

  • sunflower seeds, raisins and dried figs
  • a small bunch of mixed leaves
  • green olives
  • half of an avocado
  • 2 mushrooms
  • a handful of sprouts

Dressing:

  • 2 spoonfuls of olive oil
  • a pinch of marine salt
  • a dash of lemon

2. Get the dressing ready

This is probably the most important rule: the dressing should go at the bottom to avoid making the greens soggy. Mix the olive oil, salt and lemon juice directly in the jar.

3. Add the nuts, raisins and figs

Place the items that will soak up the dressing right at the bottom of the jar to make your salad last longer, soak up the yummy juices and soften the seeds and sweet dried fruits.

4. Chop the olives

You can use green or black olives, whatever you like or have on hand. Their salty taste will contrast beautifully with the sweet raisins and figs lying underneath.
