When it comes to cooking for a spring celebration, you want the food to be light, fresh, and, most importantly, delicious. Incorporating seasonal favorites is essential, and there’s no better time to impress guests with experimental flavors.
Rice, Zucchini, and Feta Frittata
Frittatas aren’t just for breakfast; they make a delightfully airy and flavorful start to the meal as well. This rendition cuts the creaminess of the feta and eggs with crisp veggies and fresh mint.
Lamb with Hot Honey and Lavender
Lavender and lamb is a match made in heaven—it’s the perfect balance of earthy and bright flavors. A touch of sweetness from the honey mixes with zesty garlic and onion to make this a wonderful dish for Easter.
Polenta, by itself, is deliciously creamy, but add bright radish sprouts and Broccolini to the mix and you get an entirely new texture. Just one bite of this dish and you’ll be wishing it could be spring forever.
Some desserts are just built for spring, and carrot cake is one of them. As an Easter treat that isn’t loaded with chocolate or sugar, you can’t beat the delightfully spiced cake topped with indulgent and whippy cream cheese frosting—what’s not to love?
It may be a month or two before watermelons are fully in season, but they are still delicious in spring and a wonderful accompaniment to the fresh greens, radishes, and citrusy lemon-and-coriander dressing in this salad.
