Spring Sides

Goodbye winter weather, hello spring! Well, almost. In Northeast Ohio, we might wake up to an inch or so of snow tomorrow morning. And, no that isn’t an April Fools joke. Except, maybe from mother nature. Whether or not I wake up to a coating of snow, I can still create springtime in my kitchen.

Here are a few of my favorite spring veggie side dishes.

Carrot Quinoa Salad is a lovely way to put the spotlight on fresh carrots. You can use your favorite dressing or dare to be bold with my spicy chili lime dressing.

Veggie Tostadas are the perfect vehicle for the freshest spring produce. You can mix and match with whatever you have in the fridge or find at the farmers market. Plus, the avocado sauce is killer.

Simply roasted asparagus is a springtime must! The golden balsamic vinaigrette elevates this spring staple.

Springtime potato salad is bright and flavorful with a zippy lemon dressing and tons of fresh herbs.

My sunshine salad is a favorite in my house. Feta and crasins are a winning combination.

What are your favorite spring sides?

Spring food brings to mind colorful produce and lots of green. I wanted to combine some of my spring produce favorites in a simple salad with a zippy herby vinaigrette. Its an easy side dish for any meal.

Chickpea & Freekeh Salad

Hello lovelies! I hope everyone is having a fabulous week. I thought I’d put a spotlight on lunch this week. My lunch usually consists of either a smoothie or yogurt with fruit and nuts. Simple, healthy, straightforward, delicious….but a tad boring. So, I have been thinking of different ways to shake up my lunchtime routine.

This salad was inspired by my boyfriend, Kelby because he loves feta cheese and craisins in his salad. Plus, he is my sunshine 😉
