Strawberry Spring Fever Salad

I have a fever.

Whew! Thank goodness it’s the spring kind.

People are posting this week’s weather forecast on facebook like it’s going out of style, so I’m sure you know all about the 72 degree spring weather coming up.

spring fe·ver

Noun: A feeling of restlessness and excitement felt at the beginning of spring.

Yep, I have a bad case of self-diagnosed spring fever.  Flower shoes, strawberry salads, the whole shebang.

This salad is delicious.  Light, sweet, salty, creamy, crunch, and healthy– all tied up with a ribbon champagne vinaigrette.  It will most definitely cure your feverish symptoms. 

And maybe even the snow that’s bound to fall in April.

Strawberry Spring Fever Salad

-Serves two as an entree and three as a side.  This would be wonderful topped with grilled tofu or chicken!

Ingredients:

  • One 10 oz bag of chopped romaine lettuce (or one large head of romaine, chopped)
  • 1/2 pound of strawberries, sliced
  • 1/2 an avocado, cubed
  • 1/4 of  a red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/4 cup champagne vinaigrette (I used Trader Joe’s)

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and stir well. Enjoy!

Spring in a bowl.

 Take a bite.

Spring fever approved. 

Spring break diet approved.
