This salmon salad platter from The View from Great Island almost looks too good to eat! What we really love though, is that the options for what you add to your salad platter is endless.

Challah French Toast with Berries
We are drooling over this Challah French Toast with berries from Boulder Locavore. The Challah bread makes this dish light and airy, and, since Passover occurs nearly at the same time as Easter, it's easier to find this bread. Don't want to bother hunting it down? Try the overnight french toast casserole instead.
