There is nothing like the feeling of spring, when the weather warms up, flowers start to bloom, and the sun starts shining longer! And even better than all of that (at least for us foodies!) is the gorgeous array of greens seen everywhere, especially in the produce aisle or at the farmers market.

Earlier this week I shared the nutritional benefits of 7 fruits and vegetables to enjoy this spring, and today I’m sharing 31 delicious recipes to inspire you to use them all. Take a look through this spring recipe roundup and see how many you can make this season!


What better way to start the day than with a little bit of spring produce in these breakfast recipes!
