Spring Delights Salad

Strawberries, spring greens and a hint of mint make the perfect spring salad. Fresh, crisp flavors accompanied by a sweet-tangy dressing go great with a slice of crusty bread, and/or a nourishing bowl of soup. You’ll find fresh strawberries are in season in the produce department, and depending on weather and availability, you may find locally grown ones! We also carry a variety of spring greens, including lovely blends from the new Commonplace Farm in Corvallis.
