Okay, I know that you all have probably seen me gush about how much I love spring in almost every recent post, but I really do! Right now, my favorite thing about spring is all the fresh fruits, veggies, and other produce. I love my meat and definitely have a sweet tooth, but this time of year I just can’t wait for all the fresh foods. Asparagus, herbs, artichokes, beets, cherries, carrots, leeks, citrus…you name it, I can’t wait to get some from our local farmer’s market to eat and cook with.
One of my favorite ways to enjoy all these fresh spring goodies is to turn them into homemade slaws and salads. So, I decided to roundup 20 of my favorite spring slaw and salad recipes of my own and from around the web to share with you all today. I love slaws and salads because they make both great entrees and side dishes, are usually healthy, are quick to make and with most recipes you can make a bunch and then store it in the fridge to enjoy for a few days. I also love that you can make a quick vinaigrette dressing with fresh citrus juices and herbs.
Some of my favorite slaws and salads that I’ve posted are my Mandarin Orange Fluff Jello Salad recipe, Mustard Potato Salad recipe, and Buttermilk Coleslaw recipe. For more delicious slaw and salad recipes, scroll through the Foodie.com widget at the top of this post. There are so many great ideas like turning a cheeseburger into a salad, using up all that extra garden squash as a salad, salads in jars to store in the fridge, along with some classic favorites like carrot raisin salad and Asian slaw.
