Radish, Celery, and Snap Pea Salad

  • This crunchy, fresh salad is fantastic if you're looking for a lovely spring meal or side dish. To make it, you'll need lettuce, celery leaves, finely sliced celery, finely sliced radishes, and thinly sliced snap peas. If you prefer your veggies in larger chucks, feel free to slice them thicker. 
  • You'll also need some parsley and about 3/4 of a cup of shredded Romano cheese. 
  • As with any salad, the dressing is key. The dressing for this salad is basically a vinaigrette. You can make it yourself by combining white wine vinegar, olive oil, sugar, mustard, and salt, or you can use a store bought vinaigrette if you prefer. 
  • Just a tip: make sure you toss your salad ingredients and dressing thoroughly in a big bowl, so that everything is thoroughly doused in dressing.

Chicken and Blue Cheese Salad

  • This lovely chicken salad would be ideal as a main course; the cheese and meat will keep you feeling satisfied longer than if you were only eating veggies. 
  • The recipe for this salad recommends that you coat the chicken in a sauce of Greek yogurt, garlic and tarragon. If you'd rather have plain chicken, that would work too!
  • The salad itself requires butter lettuce, arugula and/or mixed greens, and walnuts. 
  • To make the blue cheese dressing, combine blue cheese, olive oil, red wine vinegar, tarragon, honey, Greek yogurt, and salt and pepper. If the dressing sounds a little daunting, don't worry too much. You can buy your own blue cheese salad dressing. 
  • Remember, blue cheese is a very strong flavor; try it and see if you like it before you decide to make this salad!

Asparagus and Baby Kale Caesar Salad

  • Asparagus and baby kale add a nutritious boost to tradition Caesar salad with this recipe!
  • To make this salad, start with your asparagus. You'll want to lightly cook it but not too much as you'll want it to still be crispy. Once it's been cooked a little, thinly slice it and put it together with your baby kale. 
  • Toss your baby kale and asparagus with some Caesar dressing and you're good to go! Just a note: Caesar dressing can be complicated to make. If you're feeling brave, go for it, but there's nothing wrong with grabbing the store-bought kind!
