Easter Side Dishes to Love!

Ham and lamb is a staple at an Easter feast, but you also can’t have the meal without some delicious side dishes.

Today, we are rounding up all of our favorite Easter side dishes that would be perfect for your Easter meal.

Why we love them:

  • So many options. From rolls to veggies to salads, there are so many options to choose from.
  • Make it yours. And what’s great is you can pick and customize any of them to your family’s liking.
  • Simple. Every dish is completely achievable and many can be made ahead of time.

Planning the Menu

When hosting a dinner party you want every course to be delicious. This includes the often underestimated Easter dinner sides.

First, choose the main dish, then start planning the sides.

  1. Compliment the main dish. If you’re serving ham as the main dish stay away from sides that also include ham and instead pick a veggie like Roasted Carrots or Roasted Brussel Sprouts
  2. Use seasonal ingredients, since they’re often fresh and more cost-effective. 
  3. Variety. Complete the meal using at least one of each of the following: vegetables, starch, and salad.
  4. Make it easy. Include sides that can be made or prepped ahead of time.
  5. Mix in new and unique with tried and true. Once you have the traditional starch, veggie, and salad recipes picked out go ahead and add something new. 
  6. How much to make. For 6 or fewer guests have 3-4 different sides, add one more side for every 8 guests.

Seasonal Vegetables

In general, the following vegetables can be harvested in springtime and make wonderful side dishes for your Easter meal. 

  • artichoke, asparagus, broccoli, cauliflower, brussels sprouts, mushrooms
  • snap peas and green beans
  • fresh herbs like parsley, chives, cilantro, dill, basil, rosemary, thyme
  • assorted lettuce, collard greens, kale, spinach
  • root vegetables: baby carrots, beets, onions, shallots, young radishes, garlic
  • a spritz of lemon or lime juice can brighten up vegetables or add to a vinaigrette
