Mid-march my family always get antsy for open windows, fresh grass, and chirping birds. I find the best cure for spring fever is to just open your door and usher it in. Once those shamrocks and leprechauns have had their last dance, I am ready to haul all of my spring decor and get to work. The first place to start is the kitchen; specifically everyone's palette. Just as butternut squash and apple cider is to fall, fresh fruit is to spring! Here are some fun and colorful spring salad ideas I've gathered to share with you.
