Fresh Spring Salad

Fresh Spring Salad with Figs

Salad in a white bowl

Late spring is abundant with fresh greens, and to these we add dry figs, tomatoes, avocado and you add your favorite salad dressing. 

  • Spinach
  • Kale
  • Asparagus 
  • dried figs 4 diced
  • 1 avocado cubed
  • cherry tomatoes or 2 medium tomatoes cubed   

Avocado tomato spinach asparagus
You decide on the quantity and ratio of spinach to kale, and the amount of asparagus.  We took this salad to a family reunion with a variety of salad dressings, we brought none of it home.
