28 Citrus Recipes for Spring!
We are officially 5 days into Spring! Has the weather gotten the memo where you live? We’ve had many beautiful days here recently, and by the end of this week temperatures are supposed to reach 85 degrees! I can hardly believe it. While California weather is awesome, it’s not typically this warm for so many days in March. I’m definitely not complaining one bit!
If it’s snowing or freezing cold where you live, please don’t hate me. I’m sending you some sunshine in the form of these 28 bright citrus recipes!
Spring makes me think of sunshine, short sleeves, morning walks, and afternoons at the park. And lemons! It doesn’t feel like Spring to me until I’ve done some baking with lemons. Citrus fruits are at their peak from Winter through early Spring, and I love the bright, fresh flavor that they add to both sweet and savory dishes.
Today I’ve rounded up 28 citrus recipes for Spring from some of my favorite blogs. The list includes recipes using lemons, limes, oranges, grapefruit, and even tangerines. We’ll start with the salads and main dishes, and then move on to my favorites – the sweets! If you make it all the way to the bottom of the list, you’ll even be rewarded with a few fun beverages! 😉
