Spring has sprung! I don’t know about you, but I’m more than ready to say goodbye to winter. After many months of roasted veggies, even favorites like butternut squash and sweet potatoes are starting to get a little old, which inspired me to share 15 Spectacular Spring Salads. It’s time to revive your palate with bright, fresh foods that will definitely get you excited for all things spring and warmer weather.

Spring is a favorite season of mine. I absolutely adore the change in weather and the newness of everything. It has been pretty beautiful, here in Texas, over the past couple of days. Grilling, running, long walks, and open windows have been the name of the game!

You guys know salads are my go-to meal choice for loading up on nutrients. It’s easy to eat healthy when there is such a wide variety of gorgeous, colorful fruits and veggies in season. Put away the root vegetables, it’s time for GREEN things!
