Spring is here. (Yay!) And you know what that means? Lots of fresh green salads!
I’m so excited to start this season off right that today I wanted to share my top 10 healthy salads for spring! Let’s get to it!
Are you getting enough sea vegetables in your diet? Seaweed is full of good stuff like B Vitamins, folic acid, and Vitamins C and E. It is also incredibly rich in minerals like magnesium and calcium and a good source of iodine, iron, and chlorophyll.
I know seaweed doesn’t necessarily sound delicious, but this salad combines it with apple juice for a little sweetness that takes away any “ocean-y” taste. If you’re curious about how to get more sea vegetables into your diet, I highly recommend starting with this salad.
Is there anything better than fresh beets in spring? Don’t get me wrong- I know there are some serious beet haters out there… but my guess is that you’ve always had beets from a can rather than fresh. Am I right? If you love beets (or are ready to try to repair your relationship with them), this salad is a must.
Umm, umm, ummm. If you live in Seattle or have ever visited this beautiful city, you’ve probably heard of this amazing Cuban restaurant called Paseo. This salad was inspired by one of my favorite dishes that I still dream about to this day. (And if you’re vegetarian/vegan, don’t worry – it’s easy to sub the meat in this recipe for tofu!)
This is one of my favorite simple side salads that combines daikon radish with carrots, broccoli stalks, almonds and a tangy dressing. Tip: It’s a great way to use up broccoli stalks that might otherwise be thrown in the compost.
