Cindy | March 12, 2015

St. Patrick's Day is upon us, and I don't know about you...but I've more than once forgotten to wear green. That being said, my meals often include fresh greens — so that counts, right? Here are seven green recipes to ensure a pinch-free St. Patrick's Day:

Strawberry Farro Salad with Balsamic Glazed Pecans: Hot, cold, sweet, savory, crunchy, creamy...this salad hits every flavor profile, texture, and temperature.

Blueberry Panzanella Lettuce Cups: As if the lettuce "cups" didn't show off enough green, the garnish of fresh tarragon will add a pop of green to each bite, too.

Fresh Berry Arugula and Almond Salad: The sweetness of the berries pairs beautifully with the peppery arugula. This salad is easy to switch around, too. Try it with strawberries, blueberries, or a mix of the two—it'll be scrumptious either way.

White Chocolate Strawberries with Coconut and Lime: These dipped berries have the perfect amount of green, provided by the little "kiss" of lime zest. Mmmm.

Blueberry and Gorgonzola Salad with Mixed Greens: This salad not only provides the greens your body needs (especially on St. Patrick's Day), but the blueberries are JAM-PACKED with rich antioxidants.

Super Green Smoothie by Sam: Okay, technically not green (at least not completely), but this recipe is full of fresh spinach. So it counts!

Garden Salad with Apple Cider Vinaigrette: Between the apple cider vinegar dressing, the berries, and the candied pecans, this salad will have your taste buds applauding. 

So let's raise a fork to good health, good flavor, and most importantly...good luck. Happy St. Patrick's Day!
