Five on Friday: Refreshing Spring Recipes with Our Blogger's Connection
Join us each month as we round up our favorite seasonal posts from the Cooking Light Bloggers’ Connection.
This month’s theme is spring fling, and we're swooning over these light and healthy seasonal recipes.
Sweet Pea Salad with Scallion, Bacon, and Lemon Cream Dressing: Minimal ingredients. Maximum flavor. Served alongside fish or chicken, this easy peasy spring side is delightfully fresh and rich. Here, An Edible Mosaic combines lemon juice with slightly sweet whipped cream for a light dressing. And there's bacon. Need we say more?
Vegan Chia Pancakes with Peanut Syrup: Maple syrup is great, but with a spoon or two of peanut butter added to the mix it's grand. Alexandra Caspero of Delish Knowledge admits "There isn’t a food on this planet I wouldn’t dip into that syrup." We're sold!
Cutie Coconut Date Rolls: If you love energy balls, you'll just adore these perfectly-portioned, protein-packed snacks. Opt for Weeknight Bite's 4-ingredient rolls instead of spending money at your office vending machine. It's cheaper and healthier—win-win!
Coconut Curry Chicken Soup: Panning The Globe whipped up a batch of this cool, bright soup, which is sweet, sour, spicy, and salty. With the help of rotisserie chicken, this cozy dinner will be ready in just 10 minutes.
