The 10 Best Seafood Salad Recipes for Spring

Welcome, Seafoodies! 

The arrival of spring has us craving blue skies, beautiful blooms and the vibrant freshness of a good salad! We can’t think of a much better meal to complement an easy-breezy day than a bowl filled with leafy greens, an array of vibrant fruits and veggies and the rich, satisfying protein punch of seafood.

A season of renewal and rejuvenation, it’s also a good time to refresh health goals too! Weekly salads are a great way to meet the Dietary Guidelines recommendations [LINK HERE] for nutrient-rich vegetables and seafood, food groups that Americans consume too little of. 

On their own, the omega-3s, vitamin D, selenium and B vitamins found in seafood support heart health, combat inflammation and promote a healthy brain. But when combined with the vitamins, minerals, and fiber from leafy greens—a well-balanced salad can also garner a robust immune system and great gut health! 

With each forkful into a flavorful seafood-infused salad, you’re not just indulging in a delightful meal, you’re making a conscious choice for your well-being. 

So make spring fresh again this Seafood Sunday with ten of our favorite salad recipes—guaranteed to refresh and nourish!
