Spring salad filo tart is packed full of delicious fresh seasonal flavours. It’s really easy to make, low cost and perfect if you’re short on time. This family sharing recipe is made from filo pastry so has that wonderful flaky and satisfying crunch when you bite into it!
Folks, that’s us back from our amazing week hiking The West Highland Way and what better way to celebrate than with this tasty tantalizing spring salad filo tart?
I’ve been wanting to bring you this really special spring salad recipe for a while now because I know just how much you loved my previous Red Pepper and Spinach Filo Tart recipe!
The reason for the delay is that we’ve had to wait a little longer for spring to finally arrive here. So it wouldn’t have been appropriate to publish this whilst it was still winter!
Now that spring has sprung I’m quite happy to boast that I think that this is quite simply one of the best spring salad recipes ever!
I mean what’s not to love about layers of delicate light filo pastry spread with pizza topping, topped with delicious grated mozzarella and cheddar cheese, baked until the cheese is all melted together and then topped with a glorious spring medley salad?
It just seems so simple doesn’t it? It’s amazing how just a little more effort to spruce up a salad can take it from being just a salad to becoming something amazing!
This easy flat spring salad filo tart is made in a baking tray and served just like pizza, cut into large squares. It’s certainly a lot healthier than a pizza though. I mean what pizza’s do you know that come served with a spring salad on top?
I think that this spring salad filo tart encompasses just about everything that is glorious about springtime.
Just like the trees growing new leaves and buds shooting up from the ground, this salad is vibrant, fresh and of course it’s utterly delicious.
Plus, I don’t know about you, but after the winter we’ve had that just seemed to go on forever, it’s just what we need to prepare us for the glorious summer that’s just round the corner…..
Of course there’s a whole load of other salad and vegetable ingredients you could top your spring salad filo tart with. It really is that versatile. Here’s just a few suggestions!
Other Suggested Spring Salad Filo Tart Toppings
- Use any kind of fresh salad greens. I used Romaine lettuce, but you could use little gem lettuce or similar.
- Radishes, celery and red onion add a delicious and tangy crunchy topping.
- Slices of cucumber also add an extra fresh dimension!
