The few minutes after I finish my workout have become a very important part of my day. After every workout, I take time to recharge with a meal and plan my day.
Carving out this time has become a life changing habit that’s gotten easier with a little prep. To prep, I plan my meals on the Sunday before my week begins. This week I made a light and refreshing Rainbow Salad paired with a Strawberry Vinaigrette and Mango Pineapple Aquafina Sparkling
Aquafina Sparkling is a refreshing flavored water that works good to rehydrate any time of the day. I buy mine at Target and use coupons anytime I can. Right now there’s a Cartwheel offer for 25% off any Aquafina Sparkling 8pk flavor from 5/21-6/17. You can click here or on the coupon below for that offer.
With the weather warming up, instead of heading straight home to start my day, I’m going to pack a picnic and recharge outside in the warm sunlight.
On the days when it’s warm, I’ll pack my planner, a blanket and lunch in my little woven tote.
There’s a picnic area behind our gym that’s the perfect place to recharge. It was so nice being out there in the sun enjoying.
So let me show you how to make the perfect Rainbow Salad and Strawberry Vinaigrette using Mango Pineapple Aquafina Sparkling water.
Rainbow Salad with Strawberry Vinaigrette
small red cabbage
1. Wash and cut all of the produce except the cilantro and spinach into bite size pieces.
Place strawberries and Aquafina Sparkling in a blender and pulse until pureed. Aquafina Sparkling has 0 calories, 0 sugar, and 0 artificial flavors which makes it a light refreshing substitute for lemon juice in this recipe.
Add sugar and blend. Now gradually add the vinegar and oil until the vinaigrette thickens.
To create my Rainbow jar salad, I started with a layer of Strawberry Vinaigrette at the very bottom of the jar. Next, I layered in alternating colored produce from heaviest to lightest until I reached the top of the jar. This salad has a mix of natural colors and flavors. Each ingredient has at least a 7-day shelf life, making them perfect in this refreshing Rainbow jar salad.
I paired my salad with the NEW Mango Pineapple Aquafina Sparkling water. This and the Black Cherry Dragonfruit are the newest flavors. They are available at Target in an 8-pk cartons and certain Target locations across the US will be offering samples. So keep an eye out next time you visit Target!
