This is a take off on the classic Bacon Ranch salad. My family wanted a little more zip and character. Since I first made this, it is the only recipe people want me to make for pot lucks.
A nice twist to your standard shrimp salad. I made this recipe when I had tons of dill in my garden and needed something to do with it. Enjoy! :)
I've always had trouble finding a good pasta salad. I've made this one several times, and everyone loves it. It's light tasting and perfect in the spring or summer. I find it's best to chill it overnight.
This a great summertime salad that I discovered while trying to be fat-free for my Doctor. Yeah right.. Anyways I had to make a side salad for a barbecue and this is what I made.. Tastes great even in the fat-free version.
A big, meaty pasta salad makes a great side dish at your cookout. Heck, it's nearly a meal.
This is all southern: Bacon; a good barbecue rub; mac cheese, which is a "vegetable" down south; and a Brussels sprout slaw (made with bacon grease, of course). Serve this only to the hungry.
A blend of four cheeses, sauteed onions, and sour cream comes together in an incredibly creamy baked macaroni dish.
I worked for a cafeteria at one time and learned how to make several pasta salads for our salad bar. This one is excellent. It is chock-full of ingredients and is great to serve in the summer when it is hot and humid (like it is upstate NY), and you're not interested in cooking or eating much. This one is loaded with goodies and is great to bring to a potluck as well.
This is one of my finest creations, made much easier by the frozen pre-cooked shrimp!
A simple, light, and easy to make pasta dish with tomatoes, spinach, and cheese.
This is a flavorful combination of spicy/sweet flavors that represents a great flavor of Thai noodles with everyday ingredients.
This is a great salad for picnics, potlucks, or just any time you want to have a terrific side to go with your meal. Great with left-overs!
Don't cook the same ol' spaghetti. Bacon-charge your pasta dinner with this easy, quick skillet idea.
A savory Thai side for your cookout or picnic. Ready in just 20 minutes!
A cool treat, packed with fresh veggies. Pair with teriyaki-marinated chicken for an Asian-themed cookout.
People just can't believe that we can put together such a delicate, rich and flavorful pasta dish here at the ranch. I hesitate to tell them that it's something we usually whip up when time is short or unexpected guests arrive on our doorstep! Quick and easy, we normally use frozen shrimp and frozen chicken breasts. This and a simple tossed green salad makes a really nice meal! Serves 6-8 people with some left over for the next day.
This is a wonderful summer, light dinner. This also make a great side as well.
A basic salad; something light and refreshing for your cookout or picnic.
This is a very savory, filling pasta salad. It is always a hit at BBQs.
