Spring has sprung and I've decided to eat at least one huge salad every day. To avoid the rut that I usually fall into I'm making it my goal to try 2-3 salads from Salad Samurai per week. I made a few recipes when the book first came out and I loved all of them, so this seems like good project for me. Feel free to join in and post here!

I started with the spring herb salad with maple orange tempeh nibbles, the first salad in the book. Wow. This was so good! I used an herb salad mix that already had parsley and dill in it.

Yeah, MMC, I was a little iffy on using strawberries the first week they're in season, but they were surprisingly good.

Today was the deviled kale Caesar. I used lacinto kale chiffonade instead of turn curly kale. I was surprised by the dressing, in a good way. I can't figure out if it tastes like nacho cheese sauce or thousand island dressing. It could probably be used for both with a little doctoring.

Everything looks so pretty together in this salad: the red onions against the greens, the pale dressing on the dark greens, the perfect cube shape of the croutons. I'm intrigued by the flavor combinations too.

I just heated the salad dressing with some chopped jalapeños and chili powder and sure enough...nacho sauce. Have I mentioned I love this book? I never would have thought of pickled onions on a salad but they were perfect with the kale.

RO, these are the croutons. They're the best thing ever.
