Spring Salads

Sharing is caring!

Spring is the perfect season for fresh green salads.

The days are warmer and spending time in the kitchen is not on my list of things to do today. I’d rather be outside enjoying the sunshine than being in the kitchen preparing a hot meal.

I have a few spring salads that I enjoy and are easy to prep and have ready for an easy meal.

You can easily substitute a heavy meal with a light salad and receive the nutritional benefits of a balanced diet. I like to prep my salad on the weekend, which allows me to quickly have a meal prepared in less than 30 minutes.

Take time for you this spring and enjoy a nutritious meal without spending your evening in the kitchen.

Here are three of my favorite spring salads for you to enjoy.

Spring Cobb Salad

  • 4 Ounces Chicken (Boiled / Cubed or Shredded)
  • 2 Cups Leafy Green Lettue
  • 2 – 3 Cherry Tomatoes
  • 1/4 Avocado (Sliced)
  • 1/2 Large Cucumber
  • 1 – 2 Egg Hard Boiled (Sliced)
  • 1/2 Ounce Parmesan Cheese (Shredded)
  • Black Pepper (To Taste)
  • Sea Salt (To Taste)
  • 1 Lemon (Juiced)
  1. Mix everything together, except for the lemon, in a large bowl. Squeeze the lemon juice on top and you’re ready to go.

Feel free to experiment and add or minus whatever you like as long as it’s healthy.

Colorful Spring Salad

  • 2 Cups Red Leaf Lettuce Mix
  • 1 – 2 Red Radish (Sliced)
  • 2 Small Carrot (Peeled and Cubed)
  • 1 Small Cucumber (Peeled and Cubed)
  • 5 – 6 Black Olives (Chopped)
  • 1/4 Avocado (Sliced)
  • 1/4 Cup Chickpeas (Cooked)
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Olive Oil
  • 1 Lemon (Juiced)
  1. Mix everything together, except for the lemon, in a large bowl. Squeeze the lemon juice on top and that’s it!

Strawberry Pecan Salad

  • 2 Cups Spinach
  • 3 Ounces Strawberries (Sliced)
  • 1 Ounce Pecans (Chopped)
  • 1/4 Small Red Onion (Thinly Sliced)
  • 1/8 Cup Feta Cheese (Crumbled)
  • 2 Tablespoons Honey Balsamic Vinegar
  1. Mix all together and enjoy the flavors of spring.

These are my favorite spring salads, with the Strawberry Salad being my favorite of them all.

Use these salads to get started and then create salads that you and your family enjoy. Keep them balanced with a healthy dose of protein, complex carbs, and fiber. Be careful with your dressings. I use lemon juice on all my green salads and honey balsamic vinegar for my fruit-based salads.

Prep your ingredients on the weekend to make these a quick and easy meal or layer them in mason jars for quick grab-and-go lunches.

Get out of the kitchen, get outside and enjoy your spring.
