9 Simple Spring Salads

April 12, 2013

With spring comes sunny days, afternoon walks, and the return of the farmers' market. After a long winter, it's harder than ever to resist the call of a peppery radish, sweet carrot, or pungent green -- and your fridge will be bursting at the seams before you know it. Our solution? Vibrant spring salads. As a bonus, the fact that they tend to be raw means you'll be on your way to a nutritious meal, even if pressed for time.
