Can't wait to see what you come up with!
I just love the look and sound of that Green Tea Cake! I don't normally bake but I'm giving that a go.

I also agree you can never go wrong with a wonderful split pea soup!

I am sure it is done the country over, because here in Boston, the bars serve green beer on tap. How gross! Makes me glad I don't drink.

What a bunch of great ideas. I will my 2 cents worth. I once made a potato salad with far too much parsley. It was quite green and the extra parsley didn't seem to affect the flavour. I suspect lots of parsley would work with a number of things. Another suggestion: tabbouleh.

That tea cake does sound lovely! And maybe some fresh (or made from frozen) pea soup instead of dried peas, with a bit of mint.

How about a Waldorf salad made with green apples (do not peel the apples), lots of celery, and pistachio nuts. Use lime juice and put lime zest in the mayo dressing. Please let us know how your "green" dinner turns out!!

2 T mayo + 2 tsp wasabi paste makes green mayo, too!

It's garbage day--thanks for reminding me to clean out the fridge!

Gah ! A verbal description would have been more than adequate, Steve.

Listen, how about Irish soda bread Muffins. Perfect for a large group.

Just reading, I like either of these recipes

Irish Soda Bread Muffins easy treat to make, give | cleveland.com


Maybe you could do a Reuben (one dish) Salad, like a cobb salad or chopped salad and serve muffins on the side. Easy.

Do green muffin papers count as green food? Otherwise, I don't see how they are green.
