What are some of your favorite spring salads? I have to bring a salad to my inlaws for Easter and I want something with a little more zing than the run of the mill salad. :)

Have to agree I love fruit salad * plain and simple ones esp when one is dieting... I have made all kinds of salads... even the ones with heavy dressings or cream in them..

Try a wheat berry or couscous salad paired with fruit and fresh spring vegetables.  I am a salad addict and anything I can eat cold that has fresh fruit and vegetables in is is salad in my opinion.  

What is your entree and sides?  The salad needs to compliment your menu.

For those who are having lamb, this Lebanese salad goes very well with it and can be made ahead of time (no problem with greens wilting, etc).

How about a layered salad? Something like this: http://www.myrecipes.com/recipe/seven-layer-salad-10000001875432/

I love a good fruit salad and there is nothing like Easter to serve up the first fruit salad of the year.
