Happy St. Patrick’s Day {Green} Recipe Roundup

Are you cooking up something {green} in your kitchen today?  From apps to drinks to desserts and everywhere in between, {green} things will be pouring out of kitchens everywhere today.  Here are our favorite {green} goodies from the past…

Is it warm in your neighborhood today?  The weather here has been on again/off again for months.  We hit 80 degrees yesterday, but we’ll be seeing lows in the 20’s before next week is out.  Spring may truly be around the corner, but this Kiwi Margarita will make you feel like summer is in full swing!

When I think of the color green, my mind usually jumps straight to summer greens and herbs from the garden.  This simple Creamy Basil and Roasted Red Pepper Dressing will make any salad taste like summer, even if you make it in March!  You can get great fresh produce all year long, even in the dead of winter.

These Not So Fried Green Tomatoes may not appear very green, but trust me… they completely fit here.  These are a summer staple in the South and are probably the #1 reason I still have to buy tomatoes from the market in the summer.  I just can’t seem to leave them on the vine long enough.

Wrap anything up in lettuce and it fits the ‘green’ theme.  I’ve been in love in the Lettuce Wraps at PF Changs for ages and my knock off version is just the thing to cure a PF Changs style craving.  Aside from being absolutely delicious, these crispy Lettuce Wraps aren’t bad for your waistline either!

One of my favorite ‘green’ snacks is guacamole.  It’s creamy, rich and full of healthy fats and oils.  I can seriously eat it with a spoon.  My Guacamole is quick and simple, but will not disappoint in taste or texture.  Eat it with chips, veggies or pita for a simple, satisfying snack any day of the year.

Tequila Lime CupcakesLast, but not least, Tequila Lime Cupcakes.  Not everyone likes green beer, right?  Have your ‘festive beverage’ and eat it too.  This are fast enough to whip up now and serve for your St. Paddy’s Day party! Omit the alcohol for the kids, but don’t forget to keep theirs separate from the grown-up version!
