Pick A Side Any Side
Step aside main course, it’s time for the runner up to take center stage… well almost. Whatever lamb dish you choose for the main event, you’ll want some tasty sides to go with it. Plenty of fresh spring veggies like asparagus, carrots, peas, green beans that are simply roasted, sautéed and glazed will make an appetizing side for your lamb. Potatoes are also a classic staple side for any Easter lamb dish!
