Spring is here to stay!  Woo hoo! It’s a gorgeous day out, more trees are blooming with florals & I’m excited!  Ok, ok, I’m calming down…breathe…back to the subject at hand. Now that spring has ‘sprung’ more green veggies are available for the taking & I have just the thing to add a little ‘spring’ to your menu 🙂

 

1) Avocado Fruit Salad

Avocado Fruit Salad combines avocado, fruit, and mint for a fresh spring salad. It pairs wonderfully with chicken salad, ham or (turkey) biscuits, and cheeses.

 

2) Ginger-and-Lemon Fruit Salad

Adding honey, lemon juice and fresh ginger to your fruit salad gives it extra flavor and zest. Mix in a large bowl and let guests serve themselves.

 

3) Apple-Pear Salad With Lemon-Poppy Seed Dressing

Cashews, cranberries, and paper-thin shavings of Swiss cheese bring a triple hit of fast flavor to this crisp spring salad.  Can be paired with Lexington-Style Grilled Chicken and Bacon-and-Mushroom Wild Rice.

 

4) Spinach Salad with Goat Cheese and Walnuts

You can find spinach year-round at most grocery stores, but the tender green peaks in freshness during the spring. Skip the saute pan for a change, and serve fresh spinach in its tender uncooked state with a red wine vinaigrette, chunks of tangy goat cheese and toasted walnuts. (Can omit nuts if allergic) Add some grilled chicken for a simple yet balanced weeknight dinner.
