Seasonal Soup & Salad Recipes ♥ March

Seasonal Soup and Salad recipes, ideas perfect for the month of March, all from A Veggie Venture's decade+ collection of 1300+ vegetable recipes.

And I'm so pleased that A Veggie Venture's March soup and and salad recipes reflect this annual bridge period: not quite winter but not yet spring. Lots of citrus. Plenty of late-winter greens.
