Spring Menu Ideas for any Dinner Party Friday - 1st March 2019

It may not seem like it at the moment, but spring really is just around the corner! The cold will be disappearing soon and the sun making an appearance – what better time to throw a dinner party?

Whether for a few friends or for a special occasion, our team of culinary experts at The White Label have put together a few menu ideas that you can use to inspire your spring menu for 2019.

Chicken Salad with Apricots, Celery and Blue Cheese

For a light salad with an undeniable spring feel, this is the perfect combination of flavours to really leave an impression. The sweetness of the apricots combined with the creamy blue cheese and refreshing celery are a delightful mix, all topped off with deliciously tender chicken. Serve it as a small side portion or as one of your mains and you’ll be off to a good start.

Poached Duck Egg with Asparagus, Cured Ham and Grain Mustard Dressing

Kick off the asparagus season and enjoy its fresh taste with this delicious recipe. A poached duck egg sits atop an aesthetically pleasing bed of thin, cured ham and asparagus, whilst a drizzle of grain mustard dressing adds a tang that pairs wonderfully with the rich, salty ham. It’s an impressive dish that’s incredibly easy to put together, making it perfect for a stress-free dinner party.

Shrimp and Chorizo Mixed Grill

A mixed grill makes an ideal spring main, and is the perfect chance to use your grill to impress guests! With plenty of asparagus and cabbage alongside a delightfully fresh cilantro-lime dressing, the chorizo and shrimp are enhanced by this combination of flavours. Finish things off with a cilantro-sour cream dipping sauce and get ready to impress.

Berry Eton Mess Dessert Shots

For a dessert that’s as appealing to the eyes as it is to the taste-buds, these adorable berry Eton Mess dessert shots are a great way to add a little sweetness to your menu. In individual glasses, they look incredible and add a touch of sophistication to an event, as well as making it super simple to serve them. The best part? They only take 15 minutes to make!

Grapefruit Mojitos

No menu is complete without a cocktail and we’re loving grapefruit mojitos this year. Fresh, tart, and sweet all at once, they’re an instant spring winner! Make it as you would a normal mojito, but switch the lime for grapefruit juice and add a little wedge of grapefruit and a few sprigs of mint for a touch of class.
