Strawberry Salad with Poppy Seed Dressing
Springtime is known for ripe fruits and blooming flowers. This classic spring mix salad utilizes strawberries to elevate it to a delicious kind of spring fruit salad that tastes more like a sweet dessert. The light dressing is made with poppy seeds and Almond Breeze Vanilla Almondmilk Yogurt that complement the freshness from the strawberries.
Watercress, Apple, and Faro Green Chicken with Creamy Avocado Dressing
Here’s another recipe utilizing fresh fruit to pair with the springtime! Crisp apples and chicken are drizzled with a delicious and creamy avocado dressing made with Almond Breeze Unsweetened Original Almondmilk. This versatile dish could be prepared as a spring salad for Easter or simply on a regular weekday. If making the salad ahead of time, wait until just before serving to add the dressing and sliced apples, or add a few drops of lemon juice to your apple slices to keep from browning if prepping all your ingredients first.
Pro-tip: Consider using Extra Creamy Almondmilk for a thicker and richer avocado dressing.
