This 7-Layer Summer Berry Salad Jar is a filling and flavorful meal to-go that will get you excited for lunchtime!
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).
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 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. This would make great meal prep for the week, or just throw it all together for a festive BBQ side salad!
