Note: If you are not familiar with salads in jars, the whole purpose is to create a beautiful salad stored in a mason jar for convenience. It is important to layer the ingredients as listed to ensure that the salad doesn’t wilt before you are ready to eat.
ASSEMBLE THE SALAD: Use a wide-mouth, quart-sized mason jar. Add the Tahini Dressing to the bottom of the jar. Next, add red cabbage, spinach, grapefruit, cucumber, cilantro, and hemp seeds. Finally, close the jar and store in a refrigerator. When you are ready to serve, simply shake the jar until well coated and eat from the jar, or pour into a salad bowl.
