It’s Easter weekend! How will you celebrate? With a big family brunch or dinner and an Easter egg hunt in the garden? I’m hoping to spend the morning on the ski slopes. Easter dinner is served in the evening, not at noon, in my house. In any case, my garden is still covered with a foot of snow.
If you need a little help, here are a few suggestions for a festive Easter dinner:
Artichokes are one of my favorite spring vegetables! If you agree, try my Artichoke Crostini. Or maybe you’d prefer my Asparagus Crostini with Sundried Tomato Pesto & Goat Cheese. Or both!
On to the main course: Give me a choice and I will always take lamb at Easter. Why not get out the grill and give my Grilled Moroccan Spiced Lamb with Eggplant Salsa a try. To complete you dinner, add a spoonful of Israeli Couscous.
Top off your feast with something sweet: It’s maple sugaring season in New Hampshire. Maple Mousse with Apple Compote is a great choice for Easter dinner. For a light dessert, try my Honeyed Apricots with Creamy Yogurt or Blueberry Soup with Mascarpone Cream.
Happy Easter and bon appétit!
