Salute Spring! Series Recipe Round-Up

Last night I tossed thick spears of asparagus in olive oil and grilled them on the barbecue until slightly blackened and tender. I could happily eat this spring side dish every evening for the next few months – at least until the local sweet corn arrives.

All this week we’ve been featuring the season’s best produce in our Salute Spring! series. Five girls brought you five ingredients and five snappy recipes. Here’s a quick recap, followed by a round up of plenty more recipes featuring the same lineup of spring produce.

  2. What a wonderful roundup! Thank you. This is our first year participating in a CSA – starting in a couple of weeks – so I’m anticipating lots of seasonal local produce. Thanks for all the inspiration.
