This spring cobb salad is such a delicious burst of fresh produce! I love adding asparagus and radish to the traditional flavors of Cobb salad for a spring meal.
When the spring growing season starts up every year, I get so excited about the things to come. It marks the start of my farm share, when things like bright lettuce and radishes are making their first appearances of the season. And I always like to add asparagus to dishes this time of year, too.
This spring cobb salad is a mix of so many delicious flavors. The fresh veggies get a boost of extra flavor from bacon, eggs, and Gorgonzola cheese.
My citrus vinaigrette takes this salad to the next level, but you can dress it with just about any of your favorite dressings. Dress the salad right before serving. If you won’t be eating the whole salad in one sitting, refrigerate the extra salad portion separately from the dressing.
Feel free to substitute different vegetables that are available at the farmers market in the spring. There are so many great options, including spring peas, baby kale, and leeks.
And try this grilled chicken salad for another celebration of fresh produce.
