Spring is in the air because I just saw my local grocery store make extra stands just for the new varieties of tomatoes that are about to  make their spring debut.

I feel the need to cleanse myself from all the winter blues with this healthy salad recipe.  Sure, there is heaps of cheese on the flatbread.  My opinions is that if I cannot see the how much cheese in the recipe, then there is no cheese in it.

The weather is just too nice, so, I didn’t want to waste my day sweating in a hot kitchen.  Instead, I put together a very quick spring salad and took it to a picnic.

I have learned the secret to a good spring salad recipe.  It is color! A vibrant salad recipe will get me to dig in with two forks!

Make this spring salad when you are by yourself because I guarantee you that you will not want to share it with anyone.

It is that good.

Last year, I made a simple Mediterranean tomato salad that is perfect for the spring season.  The blueberry vinaigrette is my go-to dressing for spring.

I should have used it for this spring salad recipe.

Instead, I went with a balsamic vinaigrette reduction.  If you can find this pomegranate balsamic vinaigrette, use that for the reduction.  It is the perfect blend of sweetness and sourness.

Also, since it is already sweet, I didn’t have to add too much agave to it.
