Sauteed Salad for Spring

When spring arrives, the sun may shine but there are plenty of cool, rainy days that have me shying from chilled green salads, even though I’m craving the vegetable goodness. To satisfy my veg cravings while meeting the weather where it is, I love sauteing flavorful, nutrient-dense salad ingredients, such as spinach, cherry tomatoes, red onion, artichoke hearts, and garbanzo beans. Simple, delicious, and perfect for the change in season.
