Fresh Spring Salads

Fresh Spring Salads

 

 

Spring time is here! Some of my favorite fresh vegetables and herbs are showing up in the farmer’s markets and grocery stores everywhere. Artichokes, asparagus, tomatoes and spring peas, all fresh from the farm.

These five salads showcase some of these vegetables, and are perfect both for serving along with grilled foods or as a meal in themselves.

Rotisserie chicken makeover? A little blush, a new outfit? What?

Store made rotisserie chicken is everywhere, and a very convenient way to serve a meal quickly. But what do you do with any leftovers you might have?

I am doing a series of recipes on Mom.me about what you can make with rotisserie chicken, whether leftover or bought just for use as an ingredient in something else.

Head over to my Mom.me page for the recipe. First up is Chicken Salad with Roasted Asparagus, Red Pepper and Cucumber.
