It's all about the food!
The a/c is blowing and it's so hot outside that I don't want to turn on the stove or oven and heat up the inside too. It's time for some summer salads.
Today I made a tuna pasta salad and a broccoli and cauliflower salad.
Tuna Pasta Salad
This can be prepared a day in advance, but don't mix in the Miracle Whip until an hour or two before serving.
1 box tricolored pasta
4 hard boiled eggs (peeled and mashed or chopped)
2 sticks of celery finely diced
1/2 small onion finely diced (you can use green onion if you want a milder onion flavor)
1 1/2 to 2 cans of flaked light tuna
1 cup of Miracle Whip with a squirt of mustard mixed in (just enough to give the MW a yellowy color)
Salt and pepper to taste
Broccoli Cauliflower Salad with Creamy Honey Lemon Dressing
This can be prepared a day in advance as long as it's stored in the fridge.
1 medium head of broccoli
1 medium head of cauliflower
3/4 cup dried cranberries craisins
1/2 cup pine nuts or almond slices toasted on a dry skillet until golden
2 Tbsp honey
2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice from 1/2 lemon
1/2 cup real mayonnaise (not Miracle Whip)
I was born in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia and spent the first half my life there. I became a mom just after I turned 20 and within a couple of years, decided to move from a small town to a bigger city to take advantage of better job opportunities. After a few great jobs, I finally settled in at a legal publishing company. 13 years later, I'm still there.
