Why Do We Eat Green Food on St. Patrick’s Day?
There is no “official” reason to eat green foods on St. Patrick’s Day other than for fun!
Green has long been associated with the holiday, from decorations, to food, to dress. It is said that one should wear green on St. Patrick’s Day to become invisible to mischievous leprechauns.
We included a lot of green recipes here, but also some classic Irish inspired dishes as well. That way you can find just the dish you’re looking for!
