It's St. Patrick's Day, and we're supposed to be drinking green beer. Really? No thanks. Fortunately there are ways to rep the holiday's required color without ruining a perfectly good brew. So pour yourself a Guinness and try one of these emerald-hued items to avoid getting pinched.

A breakfast: Green Machine Smoothie

A snack: Cucumber-Feta Bites

A lunch: Ancho Chicken Tacos with Cilantro Slaw and Avocado Cream

A dip: Easy Guacamole

A salad dressing: Four-Herb Green Goddess Dressing

A dinner: Garden-Style Lasagna

A side: Balsamic-Glazed Green Beans and Pearl Onions

A dessert: Key Lime Pie
