Though both of these dishes are great during any time of the year, the fruit salad more so during spring and summer, I think they're perfect additions for an Easter brunch. The swirl buns are first seasoned with saffron and cardamom before they get rolled with a spicy lamb filling and left to rise and then bake. Ground beef also works well here and so do chicken and turkey, though I admit that lamb is my personal favorite in this combination.
The spiced fruit salad is a riff that I did on an Indian spiced fruit salad that we eat often during the warmer months of the year at home. A few spices and a splash of pomegranate juice, make this salad the perfect end to a heavy meal but I also like it over plain whipped yogurt and sometimes if I'm in the mood, a little crunchy toasty granola.
Have a great Easter or Spring celebration this weekend!
