Looking to loose a few before it’s time to pull on the swimsuit? Check out these delicious spring salad recipes!
It seems like every winter a few extra pounds creep on…It’s a combination of all the cozy home-style meals that I like to cook in the winter months and the lack of walks I get in with Jersey.
I’ve started working for swimsuit weather a bit earlier here (it’s not truly warm enough for the pool until late May), which involves a lot of lettuce – ha!
Today I am sharing 12 light and tasty spring salad recipes I have on the meal plan this next month.
Spring Salad Recipes
There’s nothing that shouts spring more than yummy berries. This list includes several salads staring berries, but also includes a few more savory bites as well.
Spring Salad Recipes with Berries
Strawberry spinach salad is one of my favorites, but I usually make it with a poppy seed dressing. I am looking forward to trying it with a lower-calorie balsamic.
Yum! All the delicious berries rolled right into one yummy salad. Can’t wait to try it!
Blackberries. Blackberries are MY very favorite berry. I like them so much, I’ve planted a large bush in the backyard!
Blueberries are my niece’s FAVORITE. In hopes that they may be by for an afternoon, I nearly always keep them in the house. I can’t wait to use them in this fresh salad.
Spring Salad Recipes with Apples
You can’t go wrong with apples…everyone loves ’em!
I love these little apple tuna salad bites…They’re one of my favorite lunches when I am in a hurry!
Lucious Lemon Spring Salad Recipes
I found this carrot salad recipe over on my friends Kat and Melinda’s site. I know it will be tasty, because everything they make is SOOOO good! Pus, it’s a perfect addition for Easter dinner.
Anything that’s made with lemon simply feels lighter, doesn’t it?
Savory Spring Salad Recipes
Wow. This shrimp avocado salad is a lighter meal I can really get behind. It looks filling AND delicious!
It wouldn’t seem that a pasta-based salad would make the list, but this light Mediterranean salad is perfect for a family dinner!
This wedge salad looks so filling! It will make for a perfect dinner. I can’t wait to DIG IN!
This recipe is the most daring for me! I love edamame, but I don’t have a lot of experience with chickpeas!
Anyone else working to shave a few pounds off before summer rolls around? I’d love to know your favorite light and healthy recipe.
