With spring just a day away RVers are itching to get out and enjoy the coming warmer weather. From blooming flowers to baby animals spring brings much to look forward to. What’s better than celebrating the new season, than by cooking up some delicious meals that honor spring? We put together a list of 5 great spring inspired recipes that are delicious and easy to prepare.
Salmon lox or smoked salmon
