You might find these salads super simple and easy, which they are. An easy way to transition into fresh cooking (or not cooking!).

No Cook Spring Salad Recipes

Let’s start with one of my favorite salads for entertaining. It’s especially nice on a very hot summer day because nothing is cooked.

Each component of the salad is well-seasoned, with attention to the details in every way.

Shrimp Louie Salad is so good on a warm Spring Day!

I buy my shrimp already cooked from The Fresh Market and then slice and dice everything else.

The bed of greens is super yummy on a spring evening.

I buy the Campari Tomatoes and quarter them into a little white wine vinegar with salt and pepper, giving the store-bought tomatoes an instant lift before the homegrown tomatoes grace the tables.

Slice up your shallots and give them a quick pickle in the same vinegar with a pinch of sugar — SO good! That little tiny touch adds so much flavor later on.

The Shrimp Louie Dressing is so nice. Tangy and vibrant, without being heavy.

Wedge Salad for a Crowd takes the usual wedge salad and creates a whole new salad idea.

Hunks of iceberg lettuce are laid out on a big, giant white platter.

Slices of cucumbers, shallots, and bright tomatoes get arranged all over the hunks of lettuce.

Then, crumble up some Boursin Cheese (I prefer the shallot and chive flavor!), and drizzle the creamy garlic and sour cream dressing over the top.

This is what Springtime Fresh is all about!!

The first time I made this recipe was for a “Fancy Dinner Party” I was hosting. Everyone was dressing up and ready for a swanky evening.

Last minute (ish!) I changed my mind about the menu and served grilled chicken and salad. I knew it would be a hot day, so this was the best option.

The croissant croutons were made a few days before the party, as was the steakhouse herb butter that topped the chicken.

The lettuce was chopped, washed, and dried the day before.

Everything was prepped in advance of the party.

It was the most relaxing party I’ve ever hosted, y’all!
