As soon as winter ends each year (or maybe even a little before) I find myself longing for the fresh, crisp flavors of spring. I couldn’t be more excited that Megan Doherty is sharing her recipe for a tangy, savory flatbread that’s perfect lazy outdoor dinners or toting along on a picnic lunch! I know exactly what’s going in my grocery cart tonight…
