Foods that scream spring!
It’s that time of year when we say goodbye to stews and casseroles and say hello to bright salads, fresh fish and chilled… pretty much anything. We could not be more excited to usher in the spring season with yummy foods to enjoy out on the patio. Here are our top 10 picks for the best delivery foods to enjoy in springtime. Bon appétit.
Protein bowls have been around for years, so if you haven’t jumped on the bandwagon yet—where have you been? Filled with your fave protein, veggies and grains, protein bowls are a hearty yet healthy way to fuel up any time of the day.
Lemony Chicken Wings
Anything citrusy reminds us of spring and summer! We like to enjoy all foods flavored with lemon, lime, orange and grapefruit, including these lemon-garlic chicken wings. But also lemony pastas, vinaigrettes, shrimp skewers and whatever else you can dream up makes the perfect springtime meal or snack.
Hot soups are a no-no this time of year. But gazpacho? Now we’re talkin’! A cold soup made of blended raw vegetables like tomatoes, cucumbers, bell peppers, onion and garlic. It’s base also includes olive oil, wine vinegar, water and salt for the ideal appetizer or lunch.
Another chilled appetizer typically made with tomatoes, bruschetta can be found on many restaurant menus. Bursting with juicy veggies, balsamic vinegar, garlic, basil and Parmesan cheese, it makes a delicious, crowd-pleasing starter.
Salads are a given on any spring food list. But rightfully so! Packed with healthy, fresh veggies they’re bright, crisp and cool—perfect for when you feel like keeping things light. Plus, there are so many different types to keep things interesting.
Cold Sesame Noodles
Asian food is a delivery staple. And while we do love hot, sizzling noodle and rice dishes, it’s totally possible to enjoy your favorite Asian flavors in a cold dish. Take for example these cold sesame noodles with soy sauce, garlic, ginger, vinegar, peanuts, scallions and chili sauce.
Whether you want your fish fried, baked, grilled or breaded, there’s no denying that fish tastes best in the warmer months. Maybe it’s because it reminds us of that balmy, salty ocean air. No matter how you like your fish cooked, wrapped up in a taco and topped with slaw is always a good way to go.
Is it really even spring if you haven’t eaten eggs? If you don’t hard-boil and dye eggs this time of year, but still want to enjoy eating them, order some for delivery. You can actually find deviled eggs on quite a few appetizer menus!
Sometimes you want grilled foods, but don’t actually want to grill anything. That’s cool—that’s why we’re here. Believe it or not, you can order grilled meats and grilled veggies for delivery. And we encourage it.
You just can’t go wrong with handhelds. They’re perfect for on the go and there is a sandwich type for even the pickiest of eaters.
