Bright Spring Green Salad

“This is a great make-ahead salad – perfect for your spring picnics & brunches. The veggies will stay crisp overnight in the fridge, just add the salad greens as you’re ready to serve. I blanched some asparagus and tossed it with sweet basil oil, peas, radishes and pistachios. I balanced the crisp veggies with creamy mozzarella, (although sliced avocado would be equally delicious).”

Vietnamese Rice Noodle Salad

“One of our favorite quick, cheap lunches was (and still is) a Vietnamese rice noodle salad called bun, and we like it enough that now, sometimes, we even make our own version at home. This salad is wide open to adaptations and a great vehicle for using up leftovers or odds and ends. Take the recipe and run with it, using whatever vegetables and cooked meats you have on hand.”

Spring Root and Watercress Salad

“So how do you trick someone into eating beets? Like everything else, you have to prepare the beets a different way. For texture and sweetness, I roasted just a few and hid those underneath. I thinly shaved the rest, marinated them in a lemony dressing, and kept them raw. Their crunch works nicely with the chewy wheat berries, (and also they don’t taste as beet-like). I also added some crumbly ricotta salata, (not pictured), which is optional but recommended.”

Asparagus Egg and Bacon Salad with Dijon Vinaigrette

“Asparagus Egg and Bacon Salad with Dijon Vinaigrette is the perfect easy Spring salad made with just a few simple ingredients – asparagus, hard boiled egg and bacon tossed with a Dijon vinaigrette. This is one of my go-to salads this time of year. Asparagus and eggs are a match made in heaven, but not just for breakfast, it’s great for lunch too! I always keep hard boiled eggs on hand in my fridge to use throughout the week, therefore this salad came together in less than 10 minutes.”
