11 seasonal spring salads

11 spring salads for a healthier and cleaner lifestyle

Eating seasonally is just one of the ways we can all reduce our carbon footprint, and even save some money in the process. Since Spring can be an unpredictable season in the garden, cold hardy vegetables and leafy greens are the star of the show this time of year.

You can expand the variety of seasonal produce available by incorporating some leftover winter vegetables. Carrots, beets, and even brassicas such as cauliflower and romanesco are a great way of adding more veggies to your diet during the cool spring months!

By eating salads that use in season produce, and (preferably) local grown vegetables, you ensure you’re getting the freshest, and most nutritious food possible! Eat even better by making your own salad dressings and cutting out un-healthy preservatives! Try this simple Grapefruit Vinaigrette on any leafy green salad for an instant boost of Vitamin C and of course flavour!!
