5 Must-have Spring Salads
As winter melts away and spring is springing, not only are we shedding layers—but also the hearty, comfort foods that warmed us during the snowfalls and freezing weather. We’re ready to replace soups and stews with lighter, refreshing springtime salads. Are you? Check out and toss up a few of our spring salad favorites:
Mama D’s Quinoa Salad with Basil and Mint
A combination of quinoa, golden raisins, almonds, cucumber, basil and mint makes a filling and refreshing lunch. Simple to make and great for on-the-go, this is quickly becoming one of our weekday favorites.
Strawberry Avocado Spinach Salad with Poppyseed Dressing
This salad is perfect for someone who prefers a salad on the sweeter side. The fruity, poppyseed dressing and fresh strawberries offset the red onion and gorgonzola to create a balanced springtime classic.
Spring Beet and Goat Cheese Salad with Walnuts
If you prefer a flavorful and earthy meal, this spring beet and goat cheese salad is a must-try. The arugula-base topped with a homemade Toasted Walnut Balsamic Vinaigrette keeps this salad on the lighter side.
Spring Citrus Kale Salad
This sweet and savory salad blend is ideal for a warm night on the patio. The Spring Citrus Kale Salad blends dates, oranges and apples with kale, walnuts and feta which is all tossed in homemade citrus vinaigrette.
Spring Pea Salad
This colorful salad is as yummy as it is aesthetically pleasing on your table. The mixed greens, Persian cucumbers, radishes, peas and feta give your classic mixed green salad a face lift. Tip: Boost your vegetarian salad with protein by adding a scoop of tera’swhey® Organic Plain Whey Protein to the homemade dressing.
