Eat Seasonably and 15 Sensational Salad Recipes

Eat Seasonably – Spring

Despite the non-spring like weather my brain is in spring mode. Grilling, being outdoors, green grass, farmer’s markets and seasonal fruits and veggies. I know, we had snow this week, but a girl can dream right!

Recipe creating and menu planning this week has been focused on fresh spring fruits and veggies, minimal cooking, flavor combinations and that all adds up to salads. My salad recipes are still in the works (the dressings need a bit of tweaking) but in the meantime, I have found 15 fabulously flavorful salad recipes to share along with almost all new-to-me blogs:

  1. And always make sure it’s 100% organic (some companies load their superfood up with Niacin and
    other non-organic components — go for the organic green superfood and avoid the
    Niacin hangover). There are a few factors you want to consider when purchasing a superfood drink powder.

    You need to have a number of superfoods in your diet daily.

  2. Interesting enough, my food preferences and cravings don’t really change season to season. Regardless as to what’s going on outside, SALMON is a must 😉

  3. Yes, my preferences do change! In the winter I want collards, kale, and squash. In the summer I start thinking about corn, cucumbers, and egg plant. We have some fantastic farms in the area, where you can pick your own greens, grapes, apples, and berries. Or, there are several farmers markets to visit.

  4. I definitely try and eat more seasonally since it is cheaper to do so. I also find the produce is so much nicer when it is in season.

    Love your salad round ups they all sound great!

  5. I love salads too but I’ve really been liking fruit (of course, fruit in salad works as well). I can’t seem to get enough mango and pineapple right now. Yum!

  6. What a great round-up of salads – I’m so ready for warm weather. In the summer a salad is about all I can handle for lunch most days and I’m always looking for new ones to try!

  7. I am looking forward to fresh veggies and fruit again! For now I’m settling for what I can get, but did enjoy a great salad for lunch 🙂

  8. These are such great ideas. Anything new with fennel in it and I’m excited. I look forward to trying these out!

  9. I can’t wait for farmer’s markets to get kicking for some yummy salad goodies!

  10. I’m craving tons of salads and veggies right now too! That’s awesome you are despite the poor weather. I often find myself wanting more comfort foods when it’s cold. Hopefully, spring will be here soon!

  11. Oh man, now my stomach is growling! All those fresh fruits and veggies look so fresh and yummy:) Thanks for the recipes!

  12. I can’t wait to begin chomping on fresh juice strawberries. I have to tell you – your food posts are my favorite posts on your blog hands down! You make everything look so beautiful!

  13. Awesome salads! There is a blog I love, Green Kitchen Stories, and they have awesome vegetarian and vegan recipes too! Plus it is a gorgeous blog to boot. 🙂

  14. Yum!!! Yes, I do crave different foods when the seasons change, and I do my best to eat seasonally. Some of the ones in your graphic are my favorites (asparagus, beets, strawberries, cherries), although avocado makes the list all year round 🙂

  15. So excited for all of the fresh greens to start popping up when the farmer’s market opens. And YUM to fresh, seasonal strawberries and cherries.

  16. i definitely try to buy and eat what’s in season… the food is noticeably less expensive AND tastier!

  17. wow! these look so vibrant and full of nourishment! can we have a salad date soon?

  18. I am so excited for spring foods, farmer’s markets, and STRAWBERRY PICKING. I try to go every year to pick strawberries, but this season will probably be late.

  19. Great timing for spring salad recipes! And I think it’s actually going to feel like spring here this next week… woohoo!

  20. Yes! I am feeling exactly the same way! I have a list of seasonal produce for each month on my fridge, March’s list was kind of pathetic, but April has some REALLLY good ones that I am excited for 🙂 Thanks for the salad ideas, summer is definitely salad time, and I LOVE going to the Farmers Market!

  21. I love watermelon in the summer! So ready for that 🙂

  22. I am SOOOOOOO dreaming of spring. I’ve been thinking of my garden, the farmer’s market, picking fresh fruit at the farm….please hurry up!!!
