25 of Our Best Spring-Fresh Side Dishes

Spring brings fresh, vibrant ingredients that are perfect for making a host of flavorful sides.
By Rai Mincey

Sauteed Morel Mushrooms

Rich, nutty, earthy, lightly browned mushrooms in a light layer of butter and herbs with just the slightest tinge of lemon. The lemon juice and zest cut the richness of the mushrooms and butter, and bring the flavors together for me. Serve on a steak, over pasta with a touch of added cream, on toasts with some goat cheese, as a side dish with a bit of shaved Parmesan cheese, over sauteed asparagus, or tossed with roasted potatoes and a handful of arugula.

French Spring Soup

I make this during asparagus season when my husband's patch is producing a lot. It is very fresh tasting, and the longer it sits, the better it is.

Lemon Poppy Seed Tartlet with a Strawberry Rose

Rating: 5 stars 4
Spring is finally upon us and what better way to celebrate with a little sweet that looks like it was freshly plucked from the garden. Here a jeweled toned strawberry is transformed into a blooming rose with a few simple knife cuts. It rests on a tangy cream cheese filling that cozies up to a butter and tart lemon poppyseed cookie.

Spring Herb Hummus Vegetable Garden
Rating: Unrated 7
Vegetable platters need not look all look the same. Here, fresh spring vegetables sit in an herb-laced hummus to resemble a spring garden in full bloom. My kids loved plucking the crisp vegetables from the garden, so much so that I think they forgot that they were filling themselves up with such a healthful snack.
