With spring coming up quickly and warm weather rushing in, it is time to skip your ordinary chicken salad and make quick, fun salads perfect for any occasion and weather to keep your mind and body healthy!

 

Pear greek salad

Ingredients:

One pear cut into slivers

five strawberries cut into slivers

Handful of blueberries

Hand full of feta cheese

Handful of spinach

Two handfuls of romaine salad mix

I like to make this salad as a “layered” salad instead of tossed (mixing it all together) starting with the greens, then the pears down to the berries and add the feta cheese on top. This salad is great for after workouts and quick snacks!

 

Fresh Watermelon salad

Ingredients:

1 ½ cups of cut up watermelon

5 strawberries

Handful of blueberries

1 handful of sliced almonds

Handful of feta cheese

Handful of spinach

Two handfuls of romaine salad mix

This salad I typically eat outside on nice days, plus it is “insta ready.” I like this salad tossed so I can get a bit of everything in one bite!

 

Mediterranean pasta salad

Ingredients:

12 oz of bowtie pasta, cooked

1 handful of cherry tomatoes. Cut in half

½ of a cucumber

1 ½ cups of sliced bell peppers

½ a cup of feta cheese

¼ cup of olive oil

3 tablespoons of red wine vinegar

¼ teaspoon of black pepper

This pasta salad could be a side dish or something to eat for lunch! This salad is also great to take to family get togethers on warm spring days.

 

Chicken and berries salad

Ingredients:

1 large boneless chicken breast cut into slices

1 cup of spinach

1 cup of romaine

½ cups of blueberries

½ cup of strawberries

½ of a sliced orange

1 handful of sliced almonds

1 tablespoon of balsamic vinegar

½ teaspoon of dijon mustard

½ teaspoon of honey

This salad is more of a lunch or dinner salad instead of a snack or after workout salad. This salad is good as a layered or tossed salad.

Have a healthy, happy Spring!!
