Ingredients

  1. Cilantro- lime dressing:
  2. 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  3. Juice from one lime
  4. 1/2 cup fresh cilantro, loosely packed
  5. 1/4 cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt
  6. 1 teaspoon honey
  7. Pinch of salt
  1. Salad:
  2. 1/4 cucumber, diced
  3. 1/2 cup black beans
  4. 1 roma tomato, diced
  5. 1/4 cup corn
  6. 1/4 cup red pepper, diced
  7. 3 cups greens
  8. 1/4 avocado, diced
  9. 1 tablespoon shredded cheddar cheese

Directions

  1. Blend the ingredients for the salad dressing until smooth. Pour into the bottom of a quart-sized mason jar (wide-mouth works best for filling and eating out of).
  2. Then layer the ingredients in the order listed above — cucumbers, black beans, tomato, corn, red pepper, greens, avocado, then cheese.
  3. Secure the lid, and store in the fridge for up to five days. You can also pack a small container of tortilla chips to crumble on top when you're ready to eat.
