I just got back from the Wednesday Santa Monica farmers market and OMG this time of year is so exciting. We've got the best of citrus season and the spring produce in full effect. I couldn't be more excited so naturally I put together the most incredible spring brunch menu that you can use all season long!

Here's What's on the Spring Brunch Menu:
SPRING COCKTAILS: MIMOSA BAR
Mimosas just feel right! No recipe needed. All you need is a few different kinds of juice, some bottles of prosecco and then fresh fruit for garnish if you're feeling fancy! I used freshly squeezed orange juice, grapefruit juice and blood orange juice! If you can get your hands on fresh peach juice, consider yourself lucky!! It's the perfect way to start a spring brunch!
APPETIZERS: BEET TZATZIKI
This Beet Tzatziki comes together in under 10 minutes! Serve it with all the crudités and you've got yourself the best brunch appetizer! I want to slather this on everything forever and ever! Bonus - if you have leftovers, it's great on a piece of toast the next day for a quick and easy lunch
MAIN COURSE: TARTS
We've got a variety of tarts. You could make all 3 if you want options, or pick your favorite! There's a Tomato Confit Tart, a very spring Asparagus and Pea Tart and a Bacon and Shallot Tart!
SPRING SALAD: FARMERS MARKET SALAD
And to round out the main course we absolutely need a Farmers Market Salad loaded with all the gorgeous citrus!
DESSERT: CITRUS SHEET CAKE
For a sweet finish bake this Citrus Sheet Cake with a Swiss Meringue Buttercream Frosting. Literally what dreams are made of!
Spring Brunch Menu perfection right?! Enjoy!
So beautiful. Can't wait for our weather to catch up to your CA weather! Looks delicious.
I love your posts - always inpiring and so delicious! Congratulations on your success
Breathlessly waiting for Spring and all the goodies at the farmers markets!
What size tart pan? And are there any you recommend?
What a delightful spring menu! Am penning this from SE Australia where we are meant to be in the middle of autumn this Easter . . . temperatures around 30C for another week kind'of make fun of this! Love mimosas but have only had them with orange juice . . . and want to try all three tarts ere our 'relative' cold hits . . .
This is a nice refreshing brunch! I love that it is full of spring goodness and not a "heavier' kind of meal. Can't wait to try that tzatziki and the citrus salad.
Your presentation is incredible!!!!!! Thank you for all your recipes. I want to come to your house.
