Springtime features some classic dishes (baked ham, hard-boiled eggs and asparagus every which way) and it also welcomes preparations that are completely forgotten until the weather warms up again.
Chicken salad, silky smooth soups, anything green. We like this time of year for it’s feeling of renewal, so we’ve given several of our spring favorites a new twist.
Inside-Out Easter EggsThese outrageously colorful deviled eggs call on roasted beets to enhance the filling.
Spring Chicken SaladWe’ve lightened up this chicken salad with a tangy cashew cream and tons of green peas.
Ham and Rhubarb Jam ToastiesHam sandwiches never looked so good and your crazy rhubarb patch in the backyard will be no match for this simple pink jam.
Pickled EggsPickling hard-boiled eggs is a quick extra step to the best egg salad around, plus we love these sliced and layered onto avocado-schmeared toast.
Pea and Asparagus SoupThis classic soup is manages to be ultra-creamy without being heavy. Playful asparagus ribbons garnish the top.
Strawberry Cream SconesBlitzing fresh strawberries in a food processor gives these scones tons of moisture without too much cream. We’re crazy about drizzling them with a lemony lavender-thyme glaze.
