Fresh & Vibrant :: 12 Sensational Spring Salads

Light, fresh salads pair perfectly with the warmer weather. Use a variety of vibrant, delicious ingredients to inspire sensational spring salads. Think of the greens as your canvas. Then, don't be afraid to sweeten it up with some of your favorite fruits. Some of my favorites are strawberries and pears. Next, you can add flavor with cheese. Feta is always a favorite. Finally, top it off with nuts or something else with some crunch. It will also give your sensational salads texture. Here are some ideas to get you started.

Watermelon Tomato Salad :: I have been wanting to try the watermelon and tomato combo. It sounds so fresh and juicy!

Arugula Strawberry Orange Salad :: The peppery arugula mixed with the sweetness of the Cara Cara oranges? Yes please.

Kale and Apple Salad with Pancetta and Candied Pecans :: The combination of kale and apple sounds divine. Add candied pecans and my mouth is watering over the crunch!

Grilled Pear and Gorgonzola Salad :: This is one of my go-to favorites when it comes to sensational salads!
