To make the dressing: Combine the first six dressing ingredients in a blender or food processor.  Process on medium speed until combined and smooth.  With the blender running on low speed, add the olive oil and blend until emulsified.  Pour into a jar or other container.  Stir in poppy seeds, milk, and mayonnaise.  Cover with lid and shake jar until combined. Set aside.

For the salad: In a large bowl, combine strawberries, blueberries, pineapple, and mandarins. If using, sprinkle the fruit with flaxseed and chia, then lightly toss with a spoon to coat.

Divide each set of ingredients evenly between your five jars, layering in the following order:

  • salad dressing (2-3 tablespoons)
  • quinoa (3 heaping spoonfuls per jar)
  • fruit salad
  • almonds
  • romaine lettuce

Cover tightly with lids and store in refrigerator for up to 10 days.

When ready to serve, shake the jar to distribute the dressing, then pour salad onto a plate. Enjoy!
