Sesame-Snow Pea Salad

The tiny amount of dressing will scarcely seem enough to cover the veggies, but a little sesame oil goes a long way. Plus, you don’t want to overwhelm the fresh snow peas.

Mango-Arugula Salad With Cilantro-Lime Vinaigrette

Local greens are a favorite sign of the new season, but don’t turn up your nose at tropical travelers as well. Champagne mangoes, also called Ataulfo mangoes, are more commonly found in the produce section in early spring. They aren’t as fibrous as the green-skinned variety, and their sweet, creamy flesh brightens up any salad bowl.

Carrot Chips

It’s worth the time and attention to slice these carrots thinly. If the carrots are too thick, they’ll be soft instead of crispy and chip-like.

Pear-Cherry Crisp

Crisps are easier than pies to throw together, and that goes double for people on a gluten-free diet, as pie crusts without gluten can be more difficult to handle. This gluten-free topping can finish off any fruit crisp, like ones made of summer berries, stone fruits, or apples.
