Favorite Springtime Foods

For this Friday Five, we’re sharing our favorite Springtime foods.   I look forward to Spring every year for not only the weather, but the food choices too.  All winter long, I want nothing more than comfort food:  pot pies, casseroles…heavier foods.  There’s something very satisfying in eating warm food during the winter.  With the start of Spring, I really look forward to lighter foods and fresh fruit and veggie choices!

Now, I’m not gonna lie.  I actually had no clue when certain fruits and veggies were in season.  I think I have a good guess, but I might be way off.  In case you are scratching your head too, I found a great list. Some of my Springtime foods aren’t really “in season”, then I’m going with it’s what I crave more during this time of year.

1. Avocados

Now I can pretty much eat avocados every day, but right now, they are all I can think about!  I bought some this week to make some guacamole, I saved a few to slice up as a side, and I want to try this recipe: The Perfect Avocado Toast from Cooking Light.  It’s their pic.  Doesn’t that look super yummy?!avocado-toast

2. Vidalia Onions

If you are from the South, you have not lived until you have had Vidalia onions.  A sweet onion that is perfect when sautéed in butter.  I top my pierogis with them.  So good!

3. Berries

Spring starts berry season!!  Starts with strawberries then slowly through the next few months, we add in blueberries, blackberries and raspberries.  We grabbed a super big mixed fresh berry bowl from the grocery store and the three of us killed it!  So good!  We can also make some mixed berry compote again for angel food cake or maybe ice cream! berrycompote

4. Pineapple and Honeydew

Another favorite of mine!!  I ate pineapple when I was pregnant like it was my job!  I could not get enough of it and to this day, I could eat a whole container all myself daily.  Honeydew is probably my favorite melon, especially when dipped in that sweet yogurt dip you can find at the grocery store.  YUM!

5. Salads

Salads just taste better in the warmer months.  We tend to eat a lot more of them for dinner as a side or even as a main dish topped with chicken.  Some of our favorites are Caesar, Chipotle Chopped Salad bag mix and a typical garden salad topped with a ton of veggies.  We also make a good veggie filled pasta salad too! laborday4
