Spring Flavors to Include in Your Easter Dinner

With the warmer weather of spring comes amazing produce and flavors that help make the season even better. While we spend the winter enjoying rich, heavy dishes that keep us warm and cozy, the spring has us all reaching for foods that are lighter and have the fresh taste many of us associate with this time of year. Of course, there’s no better time to enjoy some of the best tastes of the season than Easter. This is the perfect chance to have an elaborate meal with loved ones and try out new dishes and enjoy old favorites. 

To make the holiday even better, have Grico’s prepare the food for you. We have an extensive Easter dinner catering menu with everything you could want for your holiday meal.

Strawberry Salad

Fresh, in-season strawberries are one of the best parts of spring returning. While you might most commonly enjoy these on their own or in a sweet dessert, they’re also the perfect addition to a spring salad. Our Easter menu includes a spinach salad with strawberries, feta cheese, toasted almonds, and an orange poppyseed vinaigrette. If you’re looking forward to spring fruits, you need to start your dinner off with this perfect spring salad. 

Roasted Asparagus and Scallions

Our roasted asparagus and scallions are another great starter for your holiday dinner. These are two amazing spring vegetables that will help get your guests ready for a delicious dinner. Served with pignoli nuts and a balsamic drizzle, this simple spring dish contains a lot of flavors that will start your dinner off right. 

Orzo Salad with Peas and Mint

Few flavors provide the same fresh feeling as mint. Peas are one of the many vegetables that are at their peak during the spring, so you can find them on many people’s Easter tables. To make peas into the perfect Easter side dish, we’ve paired them with mint and orzo. This light, fresh dish will go great with any other food you’re having at your dinner.

Honey Orange Glazed Carrots

Glazed carrots are a quintessential Easter dish. As one of the most popular foods to have on Easter, it’s no surprise that we had to incorporate it into this year’s menu. While you can find glazed carrots at almost any Easter dinner, we prepare them with a honey orange glaze that gives them a flavor that’s a little more special than a basic glazed carrot. If you’re looking to add a traditional touch to your Easter table, you can’t forgo this item.

Green Beans Almondine

Green beans almondine is popular for holidays year-round but has a flavor that feels especially right for the springtime. Green beans are a favorite of many, making them a popular choice for a vegetable side dish and a great dish to enjoy in warmer weather. Almonds help add a nutty flavor and add a crunch to the dish. Overall, this is a perfect dish that will complement anything else you’re serving and adds an elegant touch to your meal.
