    1 tbsp (15 mL) Dijon mustard
    1/2 tsp (2 mL) salt
    1/4 tsp (1 mL) black pepper
    1 cup (250 mL) pearl-sized fresh mozzarella cheese balls

    1/4 cup (60 mL) toasted walnuts
    4 oz (125 g) thinly sliced prosciutto

    Instructions

    1

    In small bowl, whisk together oil, vinegar, chocolate syrup, mustard, salt and pepper until combined and emulsified.

    2

    Divide mozzarella, blueberries and strawberries evenly among four 2-cup (500 mL) mason jars with lids. Layer spring mix and watercress over top. Sprinkle walnuts evenly over top. Layer with prosciutto.

    3

    Divide vinaigrette evenly among mason jars and secure with lids. Shake to combine and coat evenly before serving. Alternatively, pack vinaigrette on the side and dress right before serving.

    Tips

    Tip 2

    This recipe also works as a plated salad. Simply toss ingredients together in a large bowl ahead of time, then dress with vinaigrette before serving. Vinaigrette can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.

    Tip 1

    For best results, layer heavier ingredients in mason jars first.
