Easter comes just as farmers' markets are crowded with new asparagus, fresh-dug carrots, and the first foraged wild mushrooms. These flavors usher in the new season, and they're the inspiration for our simple, elegant holiday feast.

These recipes ― many of which can be prepared in advance ― hit all the classic Easter marks. Glazed ham remains a stalwart favorite, paired here with a sauté of asparagus and morels. New potatoes and carrots are tossed with fresh thyme for an easy side dish. Rounding out the meal is a tender butter lettuce salad crowned with crisp parmesan tuiles. Pineapple-coconut tartlets make a refreshing finale.

Butter lettuce salad with parmesan tuiles and almonds

Butter lettuce is crisp and refreshing, the perfect foil for a parmesan-rich dressing. Although this salad is delicious on its own, the crispy tuiles take minutes to make and are well worth the effort.

Classic baked ham with maple-mustard glaze

Ham is the centerpiece of any Easter meal; it's quick to prepare and easily serves a crowd. A simple maple-mustard glaze delivers the sweetness of traditional pineapple rings and maraschino cherries, but adds a layer of spice.
