One of spring’s beautiful gifts is the first harvest. The year’s first greens, herbs and vegetables emerge from the soil, giving us signs that summer is soon to come. In some parts of the country and the world, the spring crops are celebrated with a feast showcasing the harvest and meals prepared solely with those ingredients. Start a new tradition at your home by hosting a spring farmhouse dinner with recipes featuring the food of spring. These recipes are light and fresh, and they satisfy the craving for earthy, homegrown flavors. After a long winter, saying goodbye to heavy dishes and welcoming garden-fresh recipes is cause for celebration. Pop outside and gather a few herbs, eggs and vegetables, and welcome the beginning of spring with this farmhouse dinner menu.
