8 Sensational Spring Salad Recipes
As the winter chill begins to lift and the sun starts to peak out, a variety of spring produce begins to blossom. Spring brings with it an abundance of fresh fruits and vegetables that are ripe and in season. With so much fresh produce available, there are some sensational spring salad recipes that are full of the season’s bounty.
There are many ways to prepare a spring salad and we decided it would be the ideal theme for this week’s SWAT (Sharing With A Theme). We put the Culinary Content Network and our staff to the test to come up with spring salad recipes and here are some of the highlights:
- Maria Nelson of Pink Patisserie shared with us her recipe for spring greens and farro salad with beets and citrus. Nelson is a member of the Culinary Content Network.
- Anna Voloshyna of Divine Cuisine shared with us her recipe for iceberg lettuce with balsamic dressing, which is perfect for a spring lunch. Voloshyna is a member of the Culinary Content Network.
- The winner this week is Christine Ma of Cherry on my Sundae. Ma shared with us her recipe for a fresh market salad full of spring greens with a poached egg on top. Ma is a member of the Culinary Content Network.
All of the recipes featured can be made at home for about $20 or less, excluding the cost of small amounts of basic ingredients such as butter, oil, flour, sugar, salt, pepper, and other dried herbs and spices.
