Can you feel it? Spring is in the aiiiiiiiir! It’s my favorite time of the year by far. After a cold winter in the mountains, nothing makes me happier than seeing the first signs of green in my garden. For me it’s therapeutic: barefoot, working in the garden, dirt under my fingernails, helping ease my little herbs come out of hibernation.
I know I’m a sap, but all y’all gardeners understand, I’m sure!
Naturally, one of my favorite things about a garden is having fresh food at our fingertips. If you follow this blog you’ll know that we don’t use a lot of spices and seasonings, we keep our flavors really fresh and simple by utilizing the herbs, garlic and fresh veggies (a little mirepoix goes a long way).
If you’re looking for a little inspiration for a fun Spring snack, then you’ve come to the right place. RITZ has come up with a whole set of Earth Day inspired recipes which feature their crackers and fresh toppings, which you can read all about using #FreshRITZpiration!
Anything bite sized and packed with veggies is a win for me, so I wanted to come up with my own snack to celebrate the season. It’s as simple as RITZ , fresh herbs from Target, cream cheese, smoked salmon, and a little bit of sunshine. –Sorry, I couldn’t help myself 😉
There’s not really any recipe for this, just whip your cream cheese with lots of fresh dill.
Spread them on your crackers.
And then top with some shaved smoked salmon. (And more dill, if you’re really into it like I am.)
A perfect snack! Don’t these beautiful colors just scream Spring to you?!
Stop by Target for fresh herbs and RITZ crackers so you can come up with your own #FreshRITZpiration! Leave me a comment and let me know what your favorite combos are.
