What Are Some Great Recipes for Spring Cooking?

Good Questions

Q: What are some great early spring recipes? I realize it's only March, but the 60 degree weather Michigan is having is making me want to change up my eating habits.

Do you have any lighter recipes to get us through the early spring before the summer food kicks into full swing??
