Spring offers plenty of reasons to entertain with bridal showers, graduations and garden parties. With the daffodils in full bloom and summer just around the corner, it’s time to lighten everything up. This vegetarian board is bursting with bright color and makes the ideal centerpiece for a spring celebration. The farmers market is your best place to find all of the components for this board, as you can take advantage of the natural state of the vegetables that the farmers bring in, and a bright head of cabbage makes the perfect vessel for an herbed yogurt dip.
Break up the whites and greens by alternating colors around the board and using brightly colored dishes. To make it a little heartier, add a basket of buns and butter with a small board of sliced ham.
Edible flowers are at their best in the spring as everything starts to blossom.
*Add minestrone soup or an asparagus tart to round out this spring selection.
*Celebrate spring with bubbles and serve white wine spritzers or sparkling mimosas.
NOTE: If the clip is too tangy or not quite thick enough, add up to a 1/2 cup of full-fat sour cream one tablespoon at a time, until it’s just right for your needs.
