Salads For Spring!

Ahhhhh, the weather is finally coming around! It is great to go outside and feel the warm rays of sunshine on my face. It seemed like it would never come as we had a bit of a cold winter and early spring.

When the weather gets warm, I think BBQ, salads and eating outdoors. It won’t be long until swim suit season so to gear up I am trying to eat light and healthy. Easter candy is out and fresh produce is in.

Today I wanted to give you a round up of  salads  from some of my favorite bloggers.  Click on the picture and it will take you to the recipe. These will surely take you into warm weather mode. Enjoy!

A big thank you to my blogging buddies for allowing me to use their photos!

These are great salads! We’re doing a grilled calamari salad this week since my husband’s coworker brought us calamari.

Thanks for including my Tropical-inspired shrimp salad…it’s SO GOOD that even my meat-loving hubby asks me to make this salad. It can also be made with chicken for those who don’t eat seafood.
