This peach tomato basil salad in a jar is a great vegan side dish to take with you on a picnic. It's a delicious summer produce recipe.

My friend Sarah told me about this delicious salad combination. I love how well these flavors complement each other, and it seems like they’re all in season at the same time.

We recently enjoyed this salad on a picnic. I put the dressing at the bottom of two pint-sized mason jars and the lettuce and basil at the top, using the peaches and tomatoes as a barrier to keep the greens from getting soggy. When it was time to eat, we just shook the jars and the salad was dressed and ready to eat.

And speaking of salad greens, here’s a helpful post about how to properly store leafy green vegetables and other produce. By following this method, your lettuce will last longer in the fridge. Another benefit is that when it’s time to make a salad, your lettuce is already clean so all you have to do is chop it.

  1. Someone just told meal about tomatoes and nectarines, so tomatoes and peaches should be even better! Just happen to have both right now! Thanks for sharing this recipe!

  2. Thanks for the tip on preserving lettuce – I just threw out a head of romaine the other day and felt so wasteful! I will give that a try for my herbs too.

    The presentation in the jars is so cute and functional! My mom will love that for taking salads to work.

    1. I hope the lettuce tip helps. I agree, it’s so frustrating to throw away droopy lettuce. And I hear that if someone takes a mason jar salad to work, everyone else in the office suddenly wants to eat salad.

    1. Thanks, Jill. The lettuce trick really works, and I’m especially happy with how well it keeps herbs fresh.
