Did you know that because of Florida’s early growing season, sweet corn is already available in April and May? Well it is, which means we get to enjoy one of our favorite veggies right now. Spring is all about getting out of the house and meeting up with family and friends for the latest potluck. You don’t have to worry about arriving empty-handed when you’ve got some fabulous spring veggie recipes to consult.
You’re guaranteed to find some chips and salsa at every potluck, right? Add a bit of color to your typical salsa recipe with a flavorful variation, like our Corn ‘n’ Black Bean Salsa. Not only will it complement your bowl of chips, but you can drizzle the leftovers over your chicken or fish for a delightful meal.
Deli salads are a must-have at any spring potluck, and you’re in good hands with our Revved Up Radish Slaw. It uses a variety of our favorite spring veggies, including peppers, carrots, radishes, and scallions to add a variety of flavors in every bite.
Perhaps you’re hosting your first barbecue of the season. You’ve got burgers, brats, and ribs waiting to get cooked up on the grill. The one thing you’re missing? The corn on the cob, of course! Our Spicy Lime Corn on the Cob adds a tangy twist to your more traditional versions, making it a true standout hit.
Those burgers and brats might not work for all your guests. For a vegetarian option, we recommend trying out our Veggie Skewers. Cook ’em up nice ‘n’ crispy on the grill, and you might not be able to keep the neighbors from sneaking over to grab a bite!
We bet you can’t wait to start celebrating the warm weather now! We’ve got plenty more where these came from too; be sure to check out our free eCookbook, Spring Veggie Fever: 25 Mouthwatering Spring Vegetable Recipes to find out what produce you should be looking to buy at your local farmer’s market. We teamed up with our friends at Sunshine Sweet Corn to bring you the ultimate recipe guide for celebrating the produce of the season. Take a sneak peek at what we’ve got in store below.
