Creamy Avocado And Wild Rice Salad In A Jar

Take a healthy and tasty lunch to work today! This creamy avocado and wild rice salad in a jar only takes 15 minutes to make and is packed with wholesome goodness.

Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 6-ounce box Uncle Ben’s® Long Grain Wild Rice Original Recipe
  • 1 zucchini (diced)
  • 12 cherry tomatoes (halved)
  • 1 yellow bell pepper (cored and diced)
  • 3 tablespoons basil (finely chopped)

Creamy avocado dressing

  • 1 avocado (peeled and pitted)
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 tablespoons Greed yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Cook Uncle Ben’s® rice according to instructions on the package. Let cool to room temperature.
  2. Put all the ingredients for the dressing in a blender and blend until smooth.
  3. Divide rice among 4 mason jars (I’m using 10 ounce jars) and gently press down with a spoon.
  4. Top with zucchini, tomatoes and bell pepper.
  5. Grab a piece of cling wrap and put a quarter of the avocado dressing in the center. Take all 4 corners of the cling wrap and twist to create a little pouch.
  6. Add it to the mason jar, on top of the bell pepper. Repeat the same for the remaining 3 mason jars. Close with a lid and refrigerate until it’s time to eat or take to work.
