It's springtime, and love is in the air — not to mention the smell of delicious seasonal delicacies, such as fresh asparagus, spinach, lamb and other favorites, many of which you can now find at their lowest prices of the year.
All recipes are for two servings but can easily be increased proportionately. I managed to recently cook all three dishes for under $3 per serving, but then I'm a very savvy grocery shopper and found some key ingredients on sale, either at the grocery store or at the dollar store or farmers' markets.
Even if you're not so lucky with finding things on sale, the ingredients in these recipes shouldn't break the bank for your springtime dinner dates.
I've included the prices for some of the items I found. This can serve as a guideline for what is a good price.
