How to Make Spring Salad

First, toss asparagus and chickpeas with olive oil and roast until crispy. Next, cut up all of your produce including your radishes, RubyFrost apples, avocado, green onions, etc. Whisk together all of the ingredients for your lemon vinaigrette and set aside. When your asparagus and chickpeas are lightly crispy, remove from the oven and chop asparagus. When putting your salad together, you can either toss everything together or lay out the salad first and then top with all of your toppings. Whatever works best.

This is how I made my spring salad but if you have other similar ingredients on hand, please feel free to swap ingredients. Use whatever kind of salad, spinach or arugula you have. Skip one ingredient if you don’t have it, the options are endless to make it your own.

All About RubyFrost Apples

RubyFrost apples are sweet and tart which work perfectly in this salad. They’re described as deep and rich with a hearty crunch. They have a unique flavor in my opinion and I’m definitely adding them to my apple drawer. They are perfectly crispy and are one of the most beautiful looking apples in my opinion. RubyFrost apples are rich in vitamin C which makes them slow to turn brown. I like slicing these up for my kid’s snack time at school since they don’t brown too quickly.
RubyFrost apples are grown by more than 150 family farmers. You can also check out their cousin apple, the delicious SnapDragon apples I love. Check out these Easy Grain Bowls and the Loaded Breakfast Board that I made using SnapDragon apples.
