Serves: 4

2 Persian cucumbers, diced 1 cup shredded red cabbage 1 cup cooked edamame 8 orange and/or yellow mini bell peppers, stemmed and sliced in rings 1 cup coarsely chopped cooked artichoke hearts 1 1/3 cups chopped tomatoes 1 ripe, medium Fresh California Avocado, peeled, seeded and diced 3 Tbsp. fresh citrus juice (lemon and/or orange or lime)* 2 Tbsp. Extra virgin olive oil 1 Tbsp. country Dijon or spicy mustard 1 clove garlic, minced 8 leaves fresh basil, minced 1/4 tsp. cracked black pepper, or more to taste As needed Salt to taste
  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.
