This recipe tastes similar a 3 - bean salad that I used to buy at the deli, but this one has a lot more color to it and a great variety of textures. Not only does the frozen veggies save you on cleaning and chopping time, but it also omits the step of blanching. When using fresh carrots or green bean I usually have to drop them in boiling water first, to take some of their rawness out of them, and also to soften them just slightly.

Herb Crusted Lamb with Mint Sauce

Instead of cooking ham or prime rib for Easter, why not try something new this year? Our Herb-Crusted Lamb with Mint Sauce may look and sound fancy, but it's really easy to do. It's basically a rack of lamb that's coated with herbs and spices before it's roasted to perfection. Just before serving, it's finished off with a mint-wine reduction. The end result is an Easter-worthy main dish that'll impress everyone at the table.
