Fresh Recipes Perfect for Spring

It’s been a long winter, but spring is finally here. While we can’t promise there won’t be any more chilly or snowy days, we can offer you some delicious recipes to kick off the new season.

Here are a few of our favorite spring recipes from some of our favorite bloggers and recipe creators.

1. Crunchy Cashew Thai Quinoa Salad with Ginger Peanut Dressing

Fresh, light and crunchy with a ginger zing, this salad is the perfect way to let our tastebuds dive into spring. This salad is vegan and gluten free and is great as a side or a light lunch. Quinoa is an excellent source of fiber and is actually a complete protein, meaning it has all nine essential amino acids. The thai dressing takes only a few ingredients to make and is a much lighter option compared to what you might find in the store.

2. Refried Beans and Avocado Tacos

Tacos aren’t just for Tuesdays, especially when they are this delicious. This super quick recipe is loaded with fresh ingredients and lots of flavor. Our favorite part? It’s accompanied by homemade guacamole. Don’t be intimidated by the idea of making your own guac; it’s actually extremely easy.

3. Ginger Salmon

Five ingredients. That’s all you need to whip up this flavorful salmon filet. Salmon is an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids, which can have numerous benefits for the body, including lowering triglyceride levels, reducing inflammation, and helping with healthy brain development in infants.

So welcome in the changing, hopefully warmer weather with nutrient-packed protein. Serve it up with your favorite side, maybe some roasted potatoes or grilled asparagus.
