The Spring Vegetables We're So Excited For

Spring is here. Love is in the air, spring vegetables are at the farmers markets, and we can barely contain our excitement. Move over comfort food (we'll be back for you next year, don't worry). Hello, spring produce!

The colors alone are enough to make us swoon, but the vibrant tastes and varied uses for everything from pea shoots to green garlic is where the real glory begins. We're going to be making salads, cold soups and tarts. We'll be roasting asparagus, dipping artichokes in drawn butter and topping everything with radish slices.

There are almost too many spring vegetables to choose from, but here are 15 of our favorites, and what you can do with them.
