Tasty Tip: Make it a meal! In a large Mason jar or reusable container, start with 1 cup of your favourite cooked grain (e.g. brown rice, quinoa, barley) and then add in the cooked turkey and companion ingredients. Top off with a big handful of leafy greens such as arugula, baby spinach or kale.
These turkey snack jars, featuring leftover turkey plus veggies and fruits, are ideal for when you need a snack that’s more than just a nibble: they are protein-packed, fibre-filled, and will power you with long-lasting satisfaction. Made in Mason jars, they are portable and the perfect sized snacking portion.
- In a 1-cup (250 ml) Mason jar, layer roasted turkey and remaining snack jar ingredients.
- Drizzle snack jar with honey lime dressing just before you’re ready to eat*. Keep remaining dressing in the fridge for up to one week to use on more snack jars or salads.
- In separate bowl, whisk together the lime juice, olive oil and honey until well combined. Stir in garlic, salt and pepper.
* If making jars in advance, sprinkle avocado and apple pieces with fresh lemon or lime juice to prevent browning.
