With March well underway, it’s about time to share a salad that underscores the changing of the seasons. This spring mix salad recipe with blueberries, goat cheese and walnuts is perfectly light to fit that theme. And, it’s a great way to start using fresh seasonal produce that is beginning to pop up.
Speaking of this day in March… Happy International Women’s Day! It’s not as widely known in the United States as the rest of the world, but growing up in a Russian household, I’ve always been well aware of it. Although I’m generally wary of anything that emphasizes celebration of one gender, this global holiday is meant to represent gender equality.
I am so grateful to live in a country, and to have been raised in a family, where I have never felt it to be any other way. Coming from a family of engineers, traditionally male dominated fields like math and science were actually emphasized. I never questioned what I “should” do just because I was a girl.
I hope to pass on the same values to my kids. It doesn’t matter to me that my daughter is more interested in toy cars and mechanical objects than dolls, though it would be perfectly fine if it was the other way around. On the other hand, I think it’s so cool that her favorite book is one about professionals in various fields. The important thing is that she knows she can do whatever she sets her mind to.
The timing of this holiday also means a shift into spring! This spring mix salad recipe with blueberries, goat cheese and walnuts makes the perfect seasonal transition. Even though the ingredients are typically available year round, they are just beginning to enter peak season as spring begins and will carry you all the way through the end of the summer.
I like to use a Trader Joe’s greens blend for this spring mix salad recipe. Not only is it super convenient, it packs a wide variety of greens into one package. The one I buy has six different kinds of baby lettuce, red and green chard, mizuna, arugula, frisee, and radicchio. Plus, it’s organic and the price is great.
Let me just say, I know that many of these greens are actually available at any time of year. Still, there’s something about the spring mix that just feels like spring! (Maybe it’s just me?) If you really want to include some truly seasonal greens in your salad, feel free to throw in some watercress or collard greens, too.
If you’re looking for another salad with a wide variety of greens, try this Costco Copycat Sweet Kale Salad from Perry’s Plate. It’s a remake of one of my favorite store-bought salad mixes. You can easily swap the honey with a sugar-free sweetener to make it low carb, too.
One thing to keep in mind with any spring mix salad recipe is that the greens are generally pretty fragile. To avoid overpowering them, a light vinaigrette dressing works best. I opted for a blueberry vinaigrette for this one. With blueberries in both the dressing and the salad itself, it will keep getting better and better as those berries reach their peak in the later spring and summer months.

Erythritol, which is my favorite sugar-free sweetener, is listed as an optional ingredient, but is not required. I like to use about a teaspoon of the powdered kind, for light sweetness and smooth texture. Otherwise, the blueberry vinaigrette is only slightly sweet from the blueberries. If you prefer a sweeter dressing, feel free to add a bit of your favorite sweetener to taste.
