Chicken and Black Bean Burrito Salad in a Mason Jar

This mason jar salad has all of the delicious ingredients you would wish for in a burrito, and like a burrito, it comes in its own perfectly portable package. Show up to work with this smart lunch and you’ll be the envy of your office. It gets a healthy dose of fiber from jicama and beans and is a great way to use leftover rotisserie chicken.

Even though this salad is brimming with colorful ingredients, and it is as lovely to look at as it is to eat, the dressing is the real star. This recipe calls for fresh lime juice, cilantro, a whole seeded jalapeño, garlic, and cilantro…and it will knock your socks off. Not because it’s spicy, but because it tastes so fresh. Blending the jalapeño and lime seems to make it much less spicy than you’d expect, but if it has too much heat for you, this dressing can be made with any sweet green pepper.
