Spring has certainly sprung, and just as we might move the heavier winter reds a little further back in the cellar, bringing the lighter, crisper wines like the 2014 Winston & Sons Martinborough NZ Sauvignon Blanc forward, the same happens with food. Out go the long-braising meats and slow simmering stews — it's time to bring in the fresh, new dishes of the season. Today's collection of recipes highlights everything new that spring has to offer.

  1. It wouldn't be a top 10 list of springtime recipes without strawberries, and this strawberry cheesecake certainly fits the bill.
  2. Salmon in a lemon-herb butter makes for a quick and easy dinner, and any leftovers can be tossed with a salad for lunch the next day!
  3. Even if you saw this easy asparagus tart recipe from earlier in the month, it is definitely worth another look.
  4. Quality olive oil, Parmesan, and fresh, peppery arugula are key in this arugula salad.
  5. The perfect brunch starter or light lunch: pea and mint soup.
  6. The Kentucky Derby is just around the corner. Polish off your silver cups and serve up a strawberry rhubarb mint julep.
  7. A pea prosciutto spring pizza is perfect for breakfast, lunch or dinner!
  8. Deviled eggs with a Mexican twist — guacamole.
  9. Although artichokes are available year round, spring is when they are at their seasonal peak. These crispy lemon roasted baby artichokes are great with anything coming off the grill.
  10. And on those cool spring nights, take comfort in a basque lamb stew.
