What is your favorite thing about spring? The warmer weather, the bright spring flowers or perhaps the longer days? I love opening my windows, going for a long run in the evening while there is stillΒ day light and everything green. Spring brings green grass, green and yellow pollen and green veggies! Ok, I guess I love everything but the pollen.

As a fresh green salad with red berries, this strawberry, spinach and asparagus salad is packed with superfoods. It makes the perfect lunch and a great side salad with dinner. I love to serve it with a simple grilled or baked salmon.

After procrastinating for a few weeks, I finally planted my spring garden this past weekend. I can’t wait to harvest fresh green beans, zucchini, squash, peppers, tomatoes and cucumbers. I didn’t even have to buy new tomato plants because our tomato plants from last year actually reseeded and are growing. One of the benefits of living in a warm climate is that it never really gets cold enough to kill most plants so they come back the next year.

Green is good, but do you know what makes a green salad even better? Strawberries! The beautiful red color and sweet flavor complements the nutrient-rich greens. Strawberry spinach and asparagus salad is one of my favorite ways to enjoy the taste of the season.

    I’m just totally jealous that you’re planting things. We just got snow again last night! And it had all already melted once… Hopefully in a couple months! This salad looks like the perfect thing to celebrate the final melting of the snow…whenever that happens! Lol

      Let me know if there is anything I can do to help. I love having a garden!

  16. Erin @ Miss Scrambled Egg

    Ashley – This salad is so beautiful. Our strawberry season is a little bit later in Connecticut, but I love going to the farm and picking our own. It’s hard not to eat all of the strawberries while you’re picking them. I love that you added asparagus to this spring themed salad. πŸ˜€

    Woah! I’m so impressed that you’ve planted a garden. Our (sad) garden from last year is looking super pitiful, but I’m going to cross my fingers that our tomatoes do the same thing yours did and regenerate:) Strawberries and asparagus is a combo I’ve never paired together, but they sound so delicious! (Also – I particularly LOVE that shot of the pea shoots!)

  33. Melissa | Bits of Umami

    How awesome is asparagus!? I feel like it just improves any meal. Perfect spring veggie. Loving it in this salad!! πŸ™‚
