Another lovely spring week is ahead! I’m finding that prepping a cold salad early in the day (or even the night before) is a great way to save time & stress on nights when we have sports practices. Since I’m all over Pinterest looking for new salad recipes, I’ll have plenty that we’ve tried and loved by the time summer swim team rolls around. Then, it’s great to make those ahead for nighttime meets, saving us a TON of money by bringing our own dinner instead of eating out. My kids are enjoying the hunt and test of new spring salads.

I’m heading out of town over the weekend for my annual Moms of Multiples Club’s regional convention. It’s a great way to connect with other moms of multiples and get a little away-from-the-kids relaxation time). Can’t wait!
Would love to hear your favorite spring salads. Please share in the comments below.
