As you know, April has been all about grilled cheese, but as much as we love a toasty, crispy, melty, gooey grilled cheese sandwiches, we’re already feeling the effects of 30 straight days of butter-fat-fried carbs and more fat. And we’ve only been looking at photos.

Thankfully, next month, May, is, among other celebrations, National Salad Month.

** This year again, we’ve partnered with DOLE Salads to celebrate all things colorful, fresh, green and healthy during the month of May, and we’re kicking it all off by posting your salad submissions on TasteSpotting all day next Wednesday, May 1. **

We already got a head start and have an Arugula, Avocado, and Roasted Asparagus Salad with Poached Egg in the works. (We’ll post the actual recipe next Tuesday.) Want to play along? Here’s how…

How to Participate in DOLE Salads Salad Day on TasteSpotting

I used the Dole baby spinach salad to create this light, healthy recipe. Check it out! Thanks!

Awesome idea! I love a good healthy salad. Just hope it’s Tastespotting worthy! :)

Ups, I don’t think I have time to prepare the salad, take the pictures and post… Eventhough you are probably sleeping and it’s morning here in Spain… I will try though ;D.
Sarah, I wanted to tell you that I live in Barcelona and I would be delighted to be your host :D if you make it here.

Have a good day!
