The nice thing about living over here in Europe is I still don’t quite understand the whole Celsius thing yet. So when I see that the weather is supposed to be 35, I don’t panic (at first) (…I panic once I convert it and realize it will be 95 Fahrenheit and oh by the way we don’t have air conditioning). Safe to say, I won’t be turning on the oven and will be subsisting on salads and popsicles for the foreseeable future.

I’m a big fan of fruit in salads. The tulip-man would blame my sweet tooth, but I think it’s the idea of changing up the savory vibe by throwing in some sweet freshness that has me hooked on them. There’s this Avocado Mango Fruit Salad that I love (and is in dire need of a reshoot). And just the other day the tulip-mama made this Stuffed Melon Chicken Salad (recipe in Dutch) that I’m so in love with and determined to make vegetarian to share with you. And today we turn to fresh summer berries to add delicious pizazz to this 7-Layer Summer Berry Salad Jar.

    I am really looking forward to this recipe, we make about 10 salad jars a week in our family and sometimes it gets dull. Question on the avocado, I recently learned about pickeled avocado to prevent them from browning, have you tried this ever or think it would work for this salad/alter the taste too much? Thanks

    1. Sarah says:

      Hi Alissa! I love that you’ve made salad jars a routine. They’re so fun! I actually haven’t tried pickling avocados so I’m not sure how the flavor would combine with this salad. I usually just drizzle them with lime juice to prevent browning!
