Salad Dressing

  • 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 clove garlic peeled and minced
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

For The Salad

  • ½ red onion sliced thinly
  • 1 package spring mix 5oz.
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes cut in half
  • 1 medium-size cucumber peeled and sliced
  • 2 - 3 small radishes sliced
  • ½ cup sunflower seeds pumpkin seeds, walnuts, or sliced almonds
  • ½ cup crumbled goat cheese or crumbled feta cheese - omit for vegan


  • Mix together the salad dressing ingredients in a bowl.
  • Place sliced red onion in a bowl with hot tap water and let it sit for a few minutes. Drain.
  • To assemble the salad, in a large bowl place spring mix, cherry tomatoes, cucumber slices, and red onion slices. Drizzle with the dressing and give it a gentle toss to make sure all the ingredients are coated with the dressing.
  • Top it off with the sunflower seeds and crumbled goat cheese. Serve.


  • Salad dressing: In this recipe, I used my lemon balsamic dressing. However, you can also use my Lemon Salad Dressing or Maple Dijon Vinaigrette.
  • Make-ahead instructions: To make this recipe in advance, prepare the vinaigrette dressing and salad ingredients and store them in separate, airtight containers for up to 2 days. Then, assemble your fresh spring blend salad right before serving.
  • Storage: Once prepared, this salad will stay fresh in an airtight container for up to 1 day. However, keep in mind that as it sits it will get soggy and the lettuce greens will wilt.
