Oh hey Spring! The best time of the year, with colorful flowers in full bloom, a lot more greenery around, it is my favorite seasons. Also a great time for those garden parties, brunches, bridal showers or any get-together outdoors. But all those parties are incomplete without a refreshing and gorgeous looking salad and this Berry Citrus Salad has spring written all over it.

This Berry Citrus Salad  is bursting with flavors of spring, with a tantalizing mix of greens, juicy berries and citrus, crunchy candied almonds and pistachios, infused with lemon poppy seed dressing is delightfully refreshing.

I have this thing for salads now. I remember whenever we had lunch or dinner at home, my mother always asked me to make the salad and me-being-me, I’d try out a new salad every time. Everyone loved those, so I guess that’s how it all started.

Of all those salads I’ve tried and made over the years, this Berry Citrus Salad is my favorite. It’s juicy, has that sweetness from the berries and oranges, is a bit tart and tangy from that pickled onion and pomegranate and some crunchy, sweet and salty pistachios and almonds on the top. Also the Lemon Poppy Seed dressing enhances the flavor and makes a lot more wholesome!

Give it a try before the berries and orange season slips away. It’s so refreshing to look at, it’s even more refreshing on those spring/summer afternoons.

Spring has just arrived and I’m celebrating it with my Spring Fiesta Salad. Its colorful, vibrant and so healthy!

Spring Fiesta Salad is colorful and quite hearty as its full of proteins from the beans, it has sweet corn, I simply love sweet corn and love adding it to salads. To add to it is the Honey and Mint Vinaigrette which adds the shine to the salad and makes it even tastier that you can have this as a meal too (those on diet this can be your meal).

No meal is complete without salad and this one makes a great one to go with BBQ or picnics and even on your family dinners. Everyone is just going to love it!
