This Spring greens salad is a wonderful way to welcome the spring season. This Spring mix salad is delightful with a Balsamic dressing. Spring mix greens also go great with this homemade honey mustard salad dressing.
Easy to make with a selection of mixed greens from the farmer’s market or your grocery store.
This Simple Greens Salad can be made with baby greens and you can even start with a bagged salad if you are short on time. This salad is best with a vinaigrette dressing , or a balsamic vinaigrette dressing.
There are some pretty good store-bought dressings, but I prefer making my own, even though it takes a little longer. I also love that when you make your own salad dressing, you know exactly what is in the dressing. A lot of bottled salad dressings have added sugars and preservatives that I am not sure I need. Plus you can change up your dressing recipe to suit your preferences.
This salad is perfect for spring or summer and I make it often at our house.
For this version, I added dried cranberries, feta cheese and just a few candied pecans for some crunch. Candied pecans on a salad are like frosting on a cake. Well, almost.
And of course, there is BACON.
I love adding some crispy bacon bits.
Now it is ready for a little dressing. I linked to two of my dressings above, but you can make a quick olive oil and balsamic dressing or use a store-bought vinaigrette as well.
