Do you celebrate St. Patrick’s Day? Growing up, we did – because it is also my Mom’s birthday. When I took over cooking for her on that day, I tried to serve some green foods. Like I shared with the red and pink foods for Valentine’s Day, serving green foods for St. Patrick’s Day is a simple way to make an ordinary meal special.
Here are some ideas for basic foods that you could serve for green meals on St. Patrick’s Day. There are lots of healthy choices for this holiday!
- Green peppers
- Lettuce salad
- Green beans
- Granny Smith apples
- Green grapes
- Pistachio pudding
- Mint chocolate chip ice cream
- Lime sherbet
- Key lime pie
- Lime jello
Finally, don’t forget the power of green food coloring! You add food dye to scrambled eggs, mashed potatoes, deviled eggs or almost anything you can think of to create a festive meal. Do you have any ideas to add to this list of green foods for St. Patrick’s Day? Oh, and happy birthday Mom!
