Spring is in the air and green is all around (of course, in San Diego that’s most of the year). 🙂
I found strawberries are in season here and they are delicious! I’ve been making spinach salad with strawberries and blueberries. But I have to admit that I don’t eat salads nearly as often as I should, and unfortunately, I eat already prepared meals a bit too often.
Over at MamasWeeds, Alison is doing a 30-day leafy green challenge. I could do that, right?
Well… sorta. It’s day three and I’ve had leafy greens on two of those days, heh. But I think I’m still doing pretty good.
Here’s the breakdown…
March 1 – green smoothie and a strawberry spinach salad.
March 2 – strawberries and blueberries over waffles, and um.. I had coleslaw with dinner (does that count?)
March 3 – salad with dijon vinaigrette.
I seriously don’t think I can make salad look great for 30-days straight on the blog… nor do I think anyone would enjoy “here’s what I ate” for the next month, me especially. So instead, I’m just playing around with light on salads and photographing/posting it, while mentioning that I will be making an effort to eat a salad (or putting leafy greens in a smoothie) everyday for the next month.
These two salads will be my go-to salads.
Strawberry Spinach Salad
- raspberry vinaigrette
Salad with Dijon Vinaigrette
- baby greens
- baby carrots

Will you join us for the 30-day leafy green challenge?
Until next time…
