19 Scrumptious Spring Recipes for Easter

Spring is finally around the corner (fingers crossed) and that means a whole new assortment of fruits and vegetables will soon be available at farmers markets everywhere! Bright, colorful, tender, and sweet, the availability of spring produce is always a welcome change after so many grey, winter months. This time of year is not just about the new and delicious offerings at local farm stands, but also about the sudden appearance of buds and pale shoots of grass coming up through the last of winter’s snow — and of course, about Easter, a holiday that celebrates rebirth and new life.

As with many holidays, food plays an important role around the time of Easter, and these days, Easter brunch, Easter eggs and Easter chocolate are all intrinsically linked to the holiday here in the United States. We reached out to our Culinary Content Network of food bloggers and asked them which recipes they love to cook for the impending arrival of the Easter Bunny’s favorite holiday, and they certainly did not disappoint! From delicious and easy brunch recipes to gorgeous, pastel-toned desserts and ways to use up that leftover ham, read on for these scrumptious spring recipes that are essential for Easter!
