Perfect Spring Salad

Categories > Gluten Free, Grain Free, Salads, Sides, Sugar Free, Vegetarian

You can probably guess from the name, but this is the salad to make when spring produce pops.

In late April or early May when you head to the farmers’ market or pick up your CSA box, it’s likely going to be filled with peas and radishes.

If you’ve got the time and kitchen skills, you can also use fresh artichokes.

Either way, it’s a vibrant green dish that will send your body signals that months of sunshine are ahead.
