Spring Salad

IMG_7014Building a spring salad bowl is super easy and can be made quite diverse. The combination of warming, roasted vegetables, with crisp and cool lettuce is perfect for the changing weather and adds so much depth and flavor to a salad.

With spring in swing, the farmers markets in your areas should be popping back up with some local vegetables… YAY…even though we have a little longer to wait here in Colorado with out short growing season:/

Check out what’s available in your area and see if you can get some local ingredients to make this salad and find your favorite combination. The salad below was made with what was on hand in the refrigerator and can easily be molded based on seasonality and availability.

Directions:

  • Chop zucchini, squash, onions, and mushrooms.
  • Sautee or roast zucchini, squash, onions, and mushrooms…Add the onions first, so that they are able to cook the longest which will bring out some great sweetness. Use coconut oil or ghee for this.
  • Bake Sweet Potato…(Tip! Bake off a few sweet potatoes anytime you’re using your oven and store them in your refrigerator so you can have them on hand…that made this salad super quick!)
  • Chop fresh parsley and romaine lettuce.
  • Boil egg…or prepare protein in desired way
  • Throw romaine in a bowl and top with chopped sweet potato, sautéed vegetables, avocado, micro greens, and a soft boiled egg!
  • No dressing was necessary with this flavorful salad, but our Immune Boosting sale dressing would also pair perfectly!
