For kids, the highlight of Easter is a basket of chocolate and jelly beans, but for adults the highlight is Easter lunch (or brunch!).
Every year the delicious side dishes seem to spread as far as the eye can see. Choosing (and cooking) can be hard, so this year we are voting for simplicity in sides and choosing a few, smart dishes that are both filling and healthy. Our top pick is this delicious dish which features dill, green onions, and olive oil for a beautiful combination of healthy flavor and healthy fats (no mayo here!). We hope you enjoy keeping it light this year, because when you can move more, you live more!
