Menu ideas for spring

We’re heading off to a four-day weekend to the Sasquatch music festival, just me and my husband!  While we’re there, I’m making food for one of the performers.  He likes fresh seasonal veggie salads and asked that I come up with a list to choose from.  Here is what I came up with, based upon his taste preference.  I thought the list sounded so fresh and yummy, others might enjoy it as well.

Happy Spring!  Enjoy the long weekend!!

cole slaw with radish, carrot, cabbage, red cabbage, green onion

    So, he picked from this list? You didn’t make all of this, did you?

      I ended up making around 6-8 veggie dishes, some raw, some lighted sautéed until tender. It was fun and delicious!
