  • Kilner jar with lid
  • Bowl


For the salad:

  • Large handful of frozen soya beans
  • 100 g fresh egg or udon noodles
  • 1 stick of celery sliced
  • 4 radishes sliced into wedges
  • 1 spring onion sliced
  • 3 slices of Chinese leaf lettuce finely shredded

For the dressing:

  • 1 tbsp peanut butter
  • 2 tsp soy sauce
  • 2 tsp sesame oil
  • 1/2 tsp chilli flakes
  • 1 tsp rice wine vinegar


  • In a bowl whisk all the dressing ingredients with a splash of water until smooth. Pour into the bottom of the jar.
  • Defrost the soya beans in boiling water then drain.
  • Layer the noodles on top of the dressing, then the celery and radish, then soya beans and top with the crunchy spring onions and Chinese leaf lettuce.
  • To serve, tip everything into a bowl and give a good stir.


The key to jar salads is the order they are put into the jar. Put the dressing in the bottom and then layer firmer vegetables at the bottom, the protein in the middle and the leafy greens at the top so they don’t get wet.
