I’m making a fresh, spring luncheon salad.

Packed with spring greens, fresh strawberries, crumbled feta and candied pecans.

Table set for lunch with salad and baguette.

You can find the recipe here.

It’s from Magnolia Table with Joanna Gaines.

Her recipe is intended as a starter salad.

Just add two cups of roast, shred chicken to the mix.

(I used Ina Garten’s easy method.)

And a side of sweet baguette.

Voila, it’s a meal.

Tossed in a blush wine and berry vinaigrette this salad is so fresh and delicious.

Need to save time?

This already made Blush Wine Vinaigrette is a great option.

More time savers –

Buy a rotisserie chicken.

And make the candied pecans (or walnuts) a day or two ahead.

They’re so good!

It’s so colorful and cheerful.

  • What a charming table to share with friends. I have a similar salad recipe that is my go-to for company. I simplify it even further by using Trader Joe’s candied pecans.

  • Juliet, your salad looks delicious! I have it bookmarked to make this week while I have guests! Love seeing your spring table!

  • Gosh, your salad looks wonderful. I’m going the other way (southern hemisphere) where I’m just starting to add soups and casseroles to the menu. I’m over salad for a bit having grown lots of salad things in my garden this year. Thanks for sharing this though. I’m pinning for next summer.

  • Juliet this looks perfect spring. I love strawberries in a salad and pecan always! Your table looks beautiful too.
    I am excited to have some warm weather get-togethers soon. It’s been a long winter and your post is the inspiration we need. x

  • Such a beautiful salad! I bet the strawberries and candied pecans taste so good! Pinned!
