Yesterday, I noticed buds on the trees, which means spring is finally on its way and I couldn’t be happier. I can’t wait to see the sunny days with the flowers in bloom again. It’s been a long, cold winter so spring will be a welcome sight.

With spring just around the corner, it also means that Easter will be here before we know it, so it’s time to start thinking about what to make for Easter dinner. I’ve always loved Easter, celebrating with family and enjoying delicious food.

My go-to side dishes for Easter have always been our favorite macaroni and cheese recipe(The Chunky Chef), sweet potatoes, baked beans, and deviled eggs. Along, with this delicious ham recipe (Spend with Pennies), I’ve always been perfectly happy with our holiday menu.

However, this year I thought it would be fun to try some new Easter side dish recipes. So, I have gathered some of the best sides to make for Easter, including salads, and classic potato and vegetable recipes to not only get inspiration for my Easter menu but to share with you in case you are also looking to try something new this year.
