Hot Weather = Cool Supper Salad
While you are reading the Photo Press I will be up at my son’s home near Wadena, MN. Grandma will be taking Hunter, age 10, and Taylor, age 7, to their swimming lessons while Mom and Dad work. I love Grandma time and it sounds like I will be doing some cooking, too, as son John said, “feel free to make the frozen ice cream dessert and homemade cinnamon rolls while you’re here.” Generous, isn’t he??
I love to make light main dish salads in the warm summer months! Here is one of my favorites. It’s another Taste of Home recipe!
1 pkg (16 oz) tri color spiral pasta, cooked according to directions, then rinsed in cool water and drained
2 medium plum tomatoes, seeded and julienned
8 oz sliced salami, julienned
1 small red onion thinly sliced and separated
8 oz provolone cheese slices, cut in strips
1 jar (5 3/4 oz) stuffed olives, drained and sliced
1 can (2 1/2) sliced ripe olives, drained
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 bottle (8 oz) Italian salad dressing
Mix altogether and refrigerate overnight.
I'm Kathy Lloyd. I grew up on a farm near Elmore, MN and have lived in Fairmont for over 44 years. I have always loved to cook, even when I was very young. I loved to stay with my Aunt Dorothy during my childhood. She was a great cook and used to give me freedom in the kitchen, teaching me along the way. She made recipes from our Norwegian heritage, along with pies, homemade doughnuts, yeast bread and cinnamon rolls.
