Everything Spring Green Salad with Basil Lemon Vinaigrette

Beautiful spring green salad filled with fresh seasonal produce, seeds & creamy avocado, and tossed in the BEST lemon basil vinaigrette. Enjoy this gorgeous, flavorful spring salad as a main meal, easy side dish, or recipe for a potluck!

Hi, spring. So nice of you to finally arrive and warm my bones.

I don’t know about you, but the one thing I really love about spring is all the fresh, seasonal produce. In an effort to help you eat seasonally, I thought I’d share my favorite veggie-packed, nutritious spring green salad with you. It’s inspired by various trips to the local salad bar where I always spend wayyy too much money. Anyone else? Skip the bar at Whole Foods and load up a platter with the best green salad in the world.

  • 6 cups organic spinach
  • ½ head red or green cabbage, shredded
  • 1 cup microgreens (or alfalfa sprouts)
  • ¾ cup frozen peas, thawed
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved or quartered
  • 2 persian cucumbers, sliced or roughly chopped
  • 3 radishes, trimmed and chopped or sliced
  • ¼ cup pickled red onions OR very thinly sliced raw red onion
  • ½ cup pitted Castelvetrano green olives, halved
  • 1 medium ripe avocado, sliced or chopped
  • 4 ounces crumbled feta or crumbled goat cheese
  • ¼ cup roasted and salted pistachios
  • ¼ cup roasted sunflower seeds
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

For the lemon basil vinaigrette:
  • ¼ cup fresh lemon juice
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon honey or sugar
  • 4 basil leaves, finely chopped
  • Freshly ground salt and black pepper, to taste
