Depending on where you live, most of winter’s worst should be behind you (er, fingers crossed the Northern half of the country doesn’t get yet another spring snowstorm). Either way, Daylight Savings happened, which means it’s time to start getting excited for longer days, sunshine, and fresh, flavorful spring vegetables that we can welcome into our recipes to celebrate the fact that warm weather is (almost) here.
Spring is the ideal time to head to your local farmer’s market to pick through all the locally farmed produce and incorporate it into your meals.

It’s time to hit the kitchen with these 25 healthy, fresh spring vegetable recipes.
