I've always loved the arrival of spring. The days feel infinitely longer and there's a lightness in the air that only comes around once a year. I want to savor each moment of sun, so the things I prepare in the kitchen are quick to prepare and full of fresh flavors. I first discovered this recipe for Pea Pesto Crostini around the holidays (seen here) and it's been a staple ever since. I often find pesto to be overpowering, but this one is subtle and robust at the same time. Plus, it pretty much looks like spring in the form of food, and that never gets old.
