Servings 4


  • 1 (5-ounce) package Fresh Express® Spring Mix
  • 1 large yellow bell pepper
  • 1 small cucumber, cut in half lengthwise, then cut into thin slices
  • 10-12 zucchini rounds
  • 1 celery stalk, cut lengthwise into 3 slices
  • 1 cherry tomato
  • 2 radishes, sliced thin, cut in half
  • 1/4 cup shredded carrots

Lemon Vinaigrette Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Arrange the greens from the Fresh Express® Spring Mix on a large rectangular platter.

To make the sun:

  • Cut off the ends of the bell pepper; remove the ribs and seeds. Place pepper skin side down and cut out a round shape. Next cut 7-8 triangle shapes. Create the sun by placing the triangles around the circle, placing it in the top center of the platter.

To make the flowers:

  • Arrange the cucumber slices in concentric circles, stacking them to build height. Bend and twist two slices to create a petal and place in the center. Use a celery stalk as the stem.
  • Place the zucchini slices in a circle, stacking them in offsetting rows to create the petals. Place a cherry tomato in the center. Use a celery stalk as the stem.
  • Arrange the radish slices in a circle, overlapping slices to create a pinwheel shape. Cut celery stalk in half and use as the stem. Repeat to make a second flower.
  • Arrange the shredded carrots across the bottom of the platter to create groupings of grass.
  • Serve the salad with Lemon Vinaigrette on the side.

Lemon Vinaigrette Instructions:

  • Whisk all ingredients in a bowl.
