Windsor Healthy and delicious Spring salads

May 27, 2016
Celebrate spring with fresh, hearty salads that match the season. For today’s post, the Timbercreek Communities blog team has assembled three must-try spring salads for residents at Windsor apartments.

Gingery Thai Kale Salad

Go from ordinary to extraordinary when you upgrade to this Gingery Thai Kale Salad Depositphotos_72678337_s-2015with Cashew Dressing. Packed with springtime veggies, flavourful ginger and a creamy peanut-free dressing, this easy spring salad is hearty enough to stand by itself as a meal. Keep the dressing separate to avoid soggy greens and then reuse for leftovers the following day.

Spring Pasta Salad

Pesto is a wonderful way to use fresh Spring vegetables. This seasonal Asparagus Pesto Pasta recipe makes a great side dish for a last-minute Spring meal. Visit your local market for fresh, locally grown produce. Near Joinville B Apartments (3900 Wyandotte Street East), walk 20 minutes or bike eight minutes to get The City Market (1030 Walker Road).

Strawberry-Rhubarb Salad with Mint and Hazelnuts

Combine all of your Spring favourites in this tasty Strawberry-Rhubarb Salad. The trick to this seasonal salad is the fresh mint on top which offers a cool finish. Give yourself 15 minutes to prep, plus 30 minutes for the rhubarb to soften so that it’s juicy for eating. For all the ingredients you need, check out the Downtown Windsor Farmers Market (215 Chatham Street East), open Saturdays from 8:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. beginning at the end of May. This market is less than a 10-minute walk from Carnegie Apartments (450 Victoria Avenue).

Start Spring off right with a delicious spring salad that makes the most of in-season flavours and produce. The blog team at Timbercreek Communities hopes one of today’s unique springtime suggestions becomes a new family favourite. For more information about Windsor apartments, visit our website.
