Using small mason jars like these to serve the salad is so fun at a party. Spoon a serving of salad in the jar and put some forks or spoons nearby. Everyone will be able to eat while they mingle in style. I love this!
This salad is full of super nutritious ingredients like crisp cucumbers, vibrant tomatoes and yummy, creamy avocados. It also has some tasty surprises like tiny mozzarella balls for a burst of fun and flavor. It’s super easy to chop everything up and mix it together for a party or weeknight side that you’ll keep coming back for.
Zesty, spicy, super fresh salad for any dinner or get together.

Cut onion, avocados, tomatoes, jalapeno and cucumber into small dices. Toss in a bowl. Add mozzarella balls, olive oil, vinegar, lime juice, salt, pepper and dill. Mix lightly so you don't smash the avocados. Let mixture set for at least one hour before serving.
