I love the different seasons. I especially love spring with the abundance of green everywhere and the fresh fruit, which starts to appear in the garden and at the farmers markets. Although it’s still a little early for strawberries in Vermont, this fresh spring salad with berries is perfect for that first dinner cooked on the grill.IMG_9004 We ate this salad with grilled chicken the first night and the next night I served it with slices of grilled chicken on top of the salad. Both were delicious.

Spring Salad

Salad Greens
Fresh Strawberries
Fresh Raspberries and Blackberries

Orange Vinaigrette:

¼ cup oil
1 Tbsp red wine vinegar
1 Tbsp orange juice
1 Tbsp honey
1 tsp grated orange peel

In a large bowl, combine the greens, berries and almonds. Combine the remaining ingredients in a jar and shake well. Drizzle dressing over the salad and toss to coat.
