Spring Salad with Asparagus, Artichokes, Pancetta, Pecorino, and Meyer Lemon Vinaigrette

Spring Salad with Asparagus, Artichokes, Pancetta, Pecorino, and Meyer Lemon Vinaigrette - individual portion

Hello, Spring! Hello, Spring Salad with Asparagus, Artichokes, Pancetta, Pecorino, and Meyer Lemon Vinaigrette!

I know the spring season has officially being in swing for over a month now here in the Northern Hemisphere, but where I live, much of spring is what I’ve dubbed Winter Lite. And Winter Lite the last two weeks has meant snow swirling around outside my window every other day.

Blessedly, this snow has not been sticking, but still. It’s almost May – where’s that spring thaw at, Mother Nature???

Finally, warmer temps are on the horizon here in Metro-Detroit (we’re predicted to hit 60 degrees tomorrow!), and it’s time to break out the celebratory foods – foods like this Spring Salad with Asparagus, Artichokes, Pancetta, Pecorino, and Meyer Lemon Vinaigrette!

I decided to do another ricotta quinoa bowl because I loved the Crispy Pancetta Quinoa Bowl¬†that I made last week. And, frankly, I still had some ricotta cheese left. And some mint and some peas I’d been dying to use, and an excitement for the spring equinox this weekend.
