A Vibrant Tulip Salad To Meet Those Spring Needs

With Spring comes all the pretty spring flowers, like the tulip. I love serving seasonal dishes in seasonal vessels. Is there a better way to serve a spring salad, then inside a flower? This citrus salad includes all my favorites: passionfruit, citrus, avocado, and the peppery crunch from watermelon radishes. I often talk about growing things in your backyard. This entire salad grows just steps away from my kitchen. Walking outside and gathering part of your dinner is a blessing in our busy lives. This Spring salad is a fun addition to any celebration, whether it’s a shower, brunch, or a Spring holiday like Easter coming up this week.
