Spring has finally sprung, and the warm weather has us positively itching to grill outdoors. In celebration of grilling season and the wonderful array of produce that is bursting to life around the country, we’ve chosen three of our favorite spring grilling recipes.

White Cheddar Grits with Grilled Ramps

Ramps, sometimes referred to as wild leeks, taste like a delightful combination of garlic and spring onions. They are an early spring vegetable, available right now, and for a little while longer, so be sbure to try this recipe soon. Ramps add a bright, fresh flavor to this creamy, Southern dish from

Tomahawk Chops with Grilled Mushrooms and Garlic Scapes

Garlic scapes are another wonderful spring vegetable, with a light, oniony flavor. They are available in late spring but the harvesting season is short, so make sure you’re on the lookout or you might miss them. This recipe involves a gorgeous, perfectly grilled piece of meat, complemented by the fresh, herbal flavor of chimichurri sauce, earthy, grilled mushrooms and fresh, pungent garlic scapes. Tomahawk chops not only look spectacular, but taste amazing; juicy, tender, and meaty.

Asparagus, Fingerling Potato and Goat Cheese Pizza

Asparagus is one of those quintessential spring vegetables. With its vibrant green hues, fleshy texture and hearty flavor, asparagus can really elevate a meal. The first harvest of the season results in smaller, thinner spears, which are typically the most tender. This pizza from combines the fresh flavors of asparagus, fingerling potatoes and creamy, tangy goat cheese. Try your hand at cooking your pizza on the grill. This method allows you to reach scorching high heats that result in a crisp, perfectly blistered crust.
