The Earth is about to bloom! You know the best way to kick off spring? Pay homage to mother earth by serving fresh and colorful fruits and veggies that are in season to your guests on your next spring brunch party! It is the perfect way to celebrate now that we are in the middle of the transition between winter and spring. You know, when it’s not yet warm but not too cold either but it doesn’t matter, the warmer season is coming and we want to create our own sunshine. So what are the perfect spring eats for your fun brunch?
Grapefruit comes into season in January and stays until the early summer. That is why a refreshing grapefruit fizz is the perfect drink to serve whether you are hosting brunch or dinner.
Wild arugula is foraged during this season so an arugula salad should be included in your menu.
As simple as arugula topped with croutons and shaved parmesan then tossed in olive oil, lemon and sprinkled with salt and pepper is the perfect spring salad for this gathering.
Snap peas come into season in spring so a flavorful sugar snap peas pasta will definitely bring sunshine in your line up of deliciousness.
Lemons are at their juiciest during winter until early summer which is why a lip-smacking chicken lemon thyme will be the star of this feast.
Rhubarb is the first fruit of spring. Serve a nice strawberry rhubarb pie for dessert to your friends to take advantage the freshness of this wonderful produce.
No, it isn’t picnic weather just yet but a nice outdoor brunch with loved ones will definitely give warmth and sunshine to your day.
