Instructions

  1. Layer the cucumbers, cabbage, edamame, peppers, artichoke hearts and tomatoes in 12 fl. oz. glass jars
  2. Sprinkle a little of the juice on the diced avocado to coat. Place avocado on top of the tomatoes.
  3. Place the remaining juice and ingredients in a small jar with a lid; shake until well-blended. Pour dressing over each of the layered salads. Seal with jar lid and serve.

*You can make the dressing sweeter or more tart to your liking depending on which citrus juice you use.

Serving Suggestion: Gently invert sealed jars a couple of times to coat the salad with dressing. Serve with long forks or chopsticks. Tossed salad variation: Toss salad ingredients with dressing and serve in Mason jars.

Individual snack salad variation: Place California Avocados and a small amount of dressing at the bottom of a small glass jar. Top with your favorite salad ingredients and seal with the jar lid until snack time, then gently shake and enjoy.

Beverage Pairing: Prosecco wine or sparkling water with lime.

**Large avocados are recommended for this recipe. A large avocado averages about 8 ounces. If using smaller or larger size avocados adjust the quantity accordingly.
