If you’re having a St Patrick’s Day brunch or breakfast party – or just want to bring something healthy to your office potluck at work – these rainbow fruit platters are a great idea.

Super simple to make, too!

Just slice up, or chunk up, some strawberries, cantaloupe and pineapple – add in some green grapes and blueberries and curve each layer of fruit into an arch (like a rainbow).

Put some fruit dip in the middle and you can even add some mini-marshmallows and individually wrapped Rolo candies to give it a little more of a St Patrick’s day touch.

Potluck Irish Potato Casserole

If you’re in charge of bring a side dish to your St Patrick’s Day potluck, this Irish Potato Casserole WILL be a crowd favorite.

It’s also a perfect make ahead side dish AND it travels well, too!

Last year, I made this entire casserole the night before our potluck party and put it in the refrigerator.

When I got to the potluck, I simply popped the pre-made casserole in the oven for about 15 minutes at 350 and it was DELICIOUS.

No leftovers either – everyone gobbled it up!

No Bake Irish Mint Delight

This no bake potluck dessert recipe is so easy and so REFRESHING - perfect for a spring or summer party. I make it for our St Patrick's Day party at work and Wednesday night supper at church. Chocolate, mint and cool whip - so simple!

This is one of my favorite desserts to bring to a St Paddy’s day potluck or party.

It’s got the Irish theme and the green color and it’s SO easy to make.

I did mention it’s a NO BAKE dessert, right?

The layers are beautiful and it tastes even better than it looks!

So minty and refreshing!
