Julienne Vegetable Slaw

This fresh, crispy salad will work well with any seasonal vegetables. If you don’t like your vegetables too crisp, you can blanch them all for a couple of minutes before adding the vinaigrette and then refrigerate them.

Curried Devilled Eggs

Treat mom to a twist on this classic appetizer. The fresher the egg, the harder it is to peel the shell off once it’s hard-boiled, so use eggs that are at least five days old. When slicing the eggs in half, wet the knife to help ensure a clean cut through the yolk.

Chicken Salad in Endive Boats

Endive is also labelled Belgian endive by some grocers. The smaller leaves on the inside are best for this recipe. Be sure to fill leaves just before serving, as they will brown.

Grilled Shrimp & Asparagus Skewers

These shrimp skewers are the perfect grill food. If you’re using wooden skewers instead of metal, be sure to soak them for an hour before grilling so they don’t burn.

Goat Cheese & Veggie Tartine

If you don’t have soft goat cheese on hand, thinly sliced feta works well on these open-faced tartines (French for sandwiches). If pea shoots are not available, alfalfa or bean sprouts are great alterna­tives. Thin cucumber and roasted red peppers are delicious additions, too.
