Dear Chef Mike,

I’m always on the lookout for new and delicious salad recipes to try. With spring in full swing, I was wondering if you could share your recommendations for a go-to spring salad that is both refreshing and flavorful. Looking forward to tossing up a masterpiece!

Dear Salad Spinner,

Spring is the best! I like to mix a ton of fresh herbs like mint, tarragon, dill and thai basil with lemon zest and juice. Then I add cashews, dried fruit, Private Selection™ Seedless Baby Cucumbers, Private Selection Campari Tomatoes, goat cheese and Simple Truth Organic™ Baby Arugula. I serve it with a side of balsamic vinaigrette and call it a day.

Salad Must-Haves

Spring’s the perfect time to elevate your salad game. These additions and all-in-one kits are about to make your salad bowl the star of the table.

Private Selection Seedless Baby Cucumbers

These crisp little cucumbers are greenhouse grown for superior flavor and freshness. They’re a perfect addition to salads, veggie trays and packed lunches.

Simple Truth Organic Baby Arugula

You can count on these leafy, tender greens to add a punch of fresh, peppery flavor to everyday salads. Plus, these organic greens are already washed and ready to enjoy.

This is made to easily enjoy as-is (even the fork is included). But it can also be a springboard for other quick and satisfying meals like southwestern wraps, tacos, flatbreads and more.
