Spring is here, and with spring comes fresh, flavorful – and colorful – ingredients. As the temperatures rise, the grass starts to turn green and the flowers bud, I start to crave lighter foods – salmon, asparagus, carrots, radishes, avocado, and sweet peas to name a few. Recently, I created a scrumptious new menu that features all of these wonderful spring ingredients. It’s ideal for a luncheon or dinner – oh, and the perfect way to spoil mom on her day in May! As always with my menus, these dishes can be prepared in part – or some even entirely – ahead of time. Yay!
