These colorful layers inspired by Nicoise salad are served in a glass and make a fabulously fresh no-bake meal or side dish!
Whether you’re looking for a snazzy side-dish or a no-bake summer party treat, this deliciously gorgeous layered Nicoise-inspired Rainbow Salad in a Glass recipe delivers big time.
Full of color, crunch, and some serious flavor, you’ll agree that salad tastes better when it looks this good!
Start with spinach! Chopped spinach starts your salad off with seriously fantastic color, not to mention a good dose of your daily greens.
In my glasses, I layered about 3/4 cup of spinach, which proved just enough bulk to offset the remaining ingredients, but left plenty of room to give a good look to the layering.
Get corny! Next up, fresh corn! Just slice it right off a few fresh cobs. The flavor, when you use fresh corn versus frozen, is truly remarkable. Freshy fresh and nicy nice.
Mix together roasted red bell peppers and a few fresh tomatoes. Toss them in a little bowl, then scoop them right on top of your corn layer. The combination of fresh tomatoes and smoky roasted peppers lends a beautiful texture to the center of the salad.
Mix a can of tuna with purple onions, then scoop it right on top of the tomato layer. Isn’t this looking gorrrgeous?! Now for the topper…
Top it all with avocado and a crumbled hard-boiled egg. Drizzle a bit of homemade lemon-garlic vinaigrette (check below for the insanely delish and simple recipe for this vinaigrette).
Then serve it, up, baby!
You look diviiiine in stripes!
