Egyptian Queen Cleopatra explained away her youthful indiscretions by saying they occurred during “My salad days, when I was green in judgment” (Shakespeare’s Antony and Cleopatra).

Here’s a chance for you to have some salad days of your own—perhaps of a different kind. Whip up these substantial dishes for a Mother’s Day spread, serve them with hearty breads and rolls, and top off your menu with Bittersweet Chocolate Brownies and Relish Bars. Any indiscretions you have had may be forgiven.
