Pesto Salad in Jar


  • ¾ cup pesto
  • 4 cups whole grain pasta (cooked and cooled)
  • 2 cucumbers (chopped)
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes (cut in half)
  • ½ cup black olives (chopped)
  • 1 package spinach (chopped)
  • 1 cup walnuts
  • 1 ball of fresh mozzarella (cut into chunks)


  1. Cook the pasta according to package directions. Drain the pasta, wash it and let it cool.
  2. Put the ingredients in this order! Cucumbers, tomatoes, pesto, mozorella, olives, pasta, greens, and walnuts. You can put pesto in first, but I found it to get stuck i the jar!
  3. Screw the lid on the jar and refrigerate.
