The Easy Mother’s Day Luncheon Menu.
Sparkling Grapefruit Cocktail | Vintage Home Designs
We’re starting off this delicious brunch right with refreshing drinks! Michelle offers three different options of these light and easy Sparkling Grapefruit Cocktails, including a non-alcoholic version. And how pretty is the presentation with these cute pink grapefruit ice flowers floating on the top?
Hot Chicken Salad | Simply 2 Moms
AnnMarie and Anne are bringing the main dish with a delicious twist on one of those traditional brunch favorites – chicken salad. This Hot Chicken Salad is a baked casserole with cheese, bacon, and chives – yum! And the best part is, they’ve even adjusted an old classic southern food recipe to make it keto-friendly, so we don’t have as much mom guilt.
Beet Salad With Goat Cheese & Fresh Fruit | The Ponds Farmhouse
This Beet Salad With Goat Cheese & Fresh Fruit from Rachel is not only beautiful, but healthy too. She had me at beets and goat cheese, but adding the baby spinach, fresh berries, and nuts and then dressing it in blush wine vinaigrette really elevates this salad to another level!
Marinated Shoepeg Corn Salad | Southern Home and Hospitality
I’m bringing another old-school southern cooking side dish with this retro Shoepeg Corn Salad, which was one of my mother-in-law’s favorite dishes to make.
It’s a pretty and colorful blend of white shoepeg corn, peas, green beans, and red pimentoes. And it’s just as pleasing to taste with a mix of onions, celery, and bell pepper for a little crunch. But marinating it overnight in a sweet oil and vinegar dressing is what really makes this a crowd favorite that has stood the test of time.
Semi-Homemade Naked Cake | Stacy Ling of Bricks ’n’ Blooms
For our Mother’s Day dessert, Stacy’s cake has got it going on. This trendy Naked Cake with Flowers starts with a box mix! But this easy recipe is really all about the presentation (and it has less sugar with less icing😊). Make sure and check out all of her tips on decorating a cake with real flowers for a beautiful and sweet ending to your Mother’s Day menu.
