Refreshing Salads for Spring!

Fruits and vegetables alike make tasty additions to a big bowl of salad. While many people think of salads as lettuce and a few traditional toppings, with springtime comes the possibility of many more exciting ingredients.

During Spring, the following are in season:



  • Apricots
  • Beets
  • Cherries
  • Grapefruit
  • Kiwis
  • Lemons
  • Strawberries

Using these ingredients, you can make a variety of springtime salads at your operation. Here are a few to consider:

Fava and Butter Bean Salad. This salad takes ten short minutes to prepare (although it’s recommended that you refrigerate it for one hour!). In a large pot of boiling water, cook the fava beans for about 6 minutes. Remove and discard skins. Whisk the dressing ingredients, then combine it all into a bowl.

Spring Salad with Fennel and Orange. Using fennel, orange, onion, almonds, and dried cranberries, this delicious salad will keep your customers satisfied and full. All you do is whisk the dressing ingredients together and combine all items in a bowl.

Very Easy Fruit Salad. By combining bananas, kiwis, seedless grapes, strawberries, and peaches, you’ll have a quick and easy fruity delight.
