Easter 2012 Menu
Easter is always a great holiday. Spring is here. The weather is warmer and the days are getting longer. Everyone is in the mood to hang out outside. The food is usually lighter and healthier than the winter holidays.
I decided to try a couple of new things for Easter this year, and I thought that I’d better bring something I knew was good. So, here’s the menu of the things I brought to Easter dinner this year. I’ll be posting the recipes separately.
Blue Cheese Spread with water crackers and gluten-free rice crackers. This was super easy to make and really tasty. Both young and old liked this spread; it disappeared lickety-split! And those rice crackers were great!
Asian Chickpea Salad. I’ve made this salad for prior Easter potlucks. I like it because it’s fresh and healthy. And, there often aren’t too many vegetarian options at potlucks, so I like to make sure that I have a main dish that also acts like a side dish for anyone else. It’s also great for a potluck because it comes together quickly, and can be made ahead. I just toss the hoisin dressing on right before serving, and it’s good to go.
Fig Crumble Bars. These were good. Several people said they really liked them. They were also really easy to make.
Salted Caramel Chocolate Pretzel Bark. Yum. And, I didn’t eat the whole tray by myself! I made this one because of a special request from my cousin Jeanette. I set the try out before dinner as an appetizer. I think some made it out for dessert as well.
I hope your Easter was great! Let me know what you had for Easter and what you really like to make for potlucks; I’m always on the lookout for great potluck ideas. In fact, I’ve started a Pinterest board for potluck ideas.
