Classic Produce to Put on Your Plate

Nothing says spring quite like classic vegetables that take your culinary experiences from cozy to colorful. Asparagus, avocado, broccoli, limes, peas, Vidalia onions, and spinach are just some of spring’s best vegetables. Try this Sheet Pan Mustard-Glazed Salmon with Asparagus recipe. Asparagus is one of spring’s most versatile vegetables and can be served raw or cooked. When foodies think ‘spring,’ they think ‘asparagus.’

Treat Your Taste Buds to Something New

This season, don’t be afraid to get creative in the kitchen and travel outside of your culinary comfort zone. There are many spring foods that complement each other on the plate. This Minty Pea Soup from Bon Appétit showcases fresh peas and fresh mint leaves for a combo that will make your palate pop. And it can be enjoyed chilled or warmed.

Refresh Your Senses with Fruit

Kiwi, lemons, pineapple, and strawberries are just a couple of fresh fruits that are in-season in spring. And fresh fruits are perfect for sweet and savory dishes like this simple Glazed Ham and Pineapple Kebabs recipe from SheKnows. Chunks of ham and pineapple are marinated in a flavorful brown sugar-ginger sauce before being skewered and grilled until lightly charred.
