Spring Green Salad with Radishes

Spring has sprung and we’ve started to lighten – and brighten – things up in the kitchen. We’re swapping winter’s hearty soups and stews for fresh salads. This spring green salad with lemon vinaigrette is the perfect dish to help you dive into your new seasonal menu.

Spring Green Salad

This simple salad is packed with some of our favorite springtime ingredients – asparagus, radish, and spring peas.

Start with your favorite greens, then add blanched asparagus (blanching them will make the spears easier to eat and brighten their color), blanched peas, beautiful red radishes, and some lemon slices for color.

Radishes for Spring Green Salad

The Hamilton Beach® Professional 14-Cup Dicing Food Processor was used to expertly slice the radishes. This food processor comes equipped with an adjustable slicing blade. With 14 thickness settings, the food processor makes it easy to achieve everything from paper thin  radish to thick pepperoni slices in a matter of seconds.

Spring Green Salad

We drizzled this fresh salad with our blender-made lemon vinaigrette. The Hamilton Beach® single-serve blender is great for making quick dressings and marinades. Bottled dressings can be expensive and making your own lets you save a little money and control the ingredients (especially the salt and sugar).  Use yours to blend fresh lemon juice, olive oil, shallot, honey, salt & pepper.

Spring Green Salad Dressing

The citrus dressing is the perfect accompaniment to this spring salad. Serve this spring green salad by itself for a light lunch or serve it alongside grilled chicken or fish for a seasonal supper.
