Salads are must for us when we are having Easter dinner! It gives everyone a chance to eat a little healthier. It also allows you, as the host or hostess, to introduce some non-traditional items into your menu.
From traditional pasta salads to crunchy salads with walnuts. There are salads with beans to salads with a deviled egg flair. There is something for just about every taste. It’s nice to have a variety of vegetarian options for your crowd.
The convenience of salads is that most can be made ahead so that allows you more time to spend with family and friends. These salads will give your table the colors of Spring!
