Summer time is salad weather. As the temperatures start to soar, we cool down by eating a lot more salads. Sometimes we eat them as a main dish and other times we eat them as a side dish. Either way, there are usually a lot of cool, fresh vegetables involved, making them both healthy and delicious.
The other day, I made my green bean Caesar salad, which is always a winner, no matter what. It is cool, refreshing and full of flavor, not to mention very colorful. Cool Green Bean Caesar Salad
There were plenty of leftovers, and I could have easily served it the exact same way and we would have been very happy with it. But where’s the fun in that? So I took the basics, and just added a few extra ingredients and changed it up a bit to make it something entirely different.
I had some leftover dressing for the salad that I mixed with some Miracle Whip, then I cooked up some bacon and pasta to turn this into the pasta salad we enjoyed as part of our 4th of July feast. Our 4th of July Feast
I started with one salad and we enjoyed it two completely different ways. I love it when I can changes things around like this. It makes things so much more interesting and fun. 🙂
Stay safe and stay well Everyone. ‘Til next time.
