Spring is in full-swing in most areas of the country! Except she’s a little confused and sending up to 3″ of snow to New York tomorrow. I’ll let it slide because we’ve had gorgeous weather for a few days! I even put my baby in shorts today!! 70+ degrees is just perfection. Anywho, one of my favorite, favorite breakfasts (and snacks!) is a nice cold smoothie! I love that you can pack tons of fruits and veggies into meal and there are so many amazing recipes to try. I’ve rounded up over 20 of my favorites for you!

Orange Poppy Seed Salad

Hello there! It’s Adell, from Baked in Arizona. I am excited to share this fresh citrus salad with you today.

As much as I love baking, I love fresh, healthy food too. I guess I just feel like it balances out all the sweets I  love to make :) Cause if you have a salad for lunch, you can totally make cookies for an afternoon snack right?! 
My grandpa has an orange orchard in his backyard and he is always bringing us bags of his citrus. He recently gave us a bag of oranges and I had just enough left to whip up this salad! I love the punch of citrus flavor in the dressing. 
You could add some grilled chicken to make it a more filling dinner. We had this for dinner and I added homemade croutons. I just love a good salad! I hope you enjoy it too!
