It’s been a long and dreary winter here in Pennsylvania, and I’m thrilled that St. Patrick’s Day (and spring!) are just around the corner. For me, St. Patrick’s Day always means that the worst of winter is over. The plethora of green (shamrocks, hats, beer, etc.) also serves as reminder to get my diet in check. I don’t know about you, but when I eat lots of leafy greens and fresh veggies, I always feel a little lighter and more motivated.
1. Spring Greens and Roasted Chicken // 2.Scallops-Pecans Wilted Salad // 3. Fast Nicoise Salad // 4. Spring Waldorf Salad // 5. Mango Chicken Salad // 6. Shrimp & Watercress Salad // 7. Cajun Turkey and Fresh Melon Salad // 8. Spinach Salad with Ancho Chili Pepper Chops
Thankfully, the experts at BHG have created some of the most glorious salad recipes I have ever seen! Variations on the classic Waldorf salad, plus a fabulous grilled steak bruschetta salad that leaves me feeling full, but healthy and vibrant, too. Doesn’t sound like a bad combination if you ask me.
