This gorgeous farmhouse salad highlights the best produce of the season: asparagus, peas, and radishes. Grilled chicken and chickpeas add plenty of filling protein and soy nuts add gluten-free crunch. Topped off with a bright citrus vinaigrette, this salad is the perfect way to celebrate Spring!
We had the most ridiculously beautiful stretch of 90-degree weather over the weekend. I loved every second of it! We spend tons of time outside, had a date night at our favorite hot dog joint, and finally bought a new set of patio furniture. (Amazon is the best! We found a great set that was totally affordable, with free two day shipping right to our front porch. All we had to do was take it out of the box.)
This weather definitely inspires me to eat better (at least when it’s not inspiring me to eat hot dogs), and I spent the weekend cooking up salads and developing new recipes for blueberry crumble and a delicious, spicy pasta dish that reminds me of Alfredo but without the cream.
I’ll share those recipes soon, but I wanted to share this gorgeous farmhouse salad first. I shared it over on Cupcakes and Kale Chips last month but since it’s one of my favorites, I wanted to be sure to share it here, too. It’s a hearty salad, topped with chicken, chicken, and cheddar cheese; asparagus, peas, and radishes make it perfect for this time of year. The citrus vinaigrette is bright and summery and adds a refreshing tanginess to every bite!
