  • Summertime Salad Challenge

    What's your favorite Recipe for a Cold Summer Salad?
    Mine is.......

    Cucumber Salad

    1 Box Macaroni Rings (I use the mid-size rings)
    1 Cucumber Peeled, Quartered and cut into chunks
    Diced Green Onions (To your liking)
    Marzetti Cole Slaw Dressing to moisten

    Cook Macaroni and Drain/Rinse.
    Add remaining ingrediants and refrigerate until cold.

    (If the pasta soaks up all the dressing, just simply add more)
    **Life may not be the Party we had hoped for....
    But while we are here, we might as well Dance

      Need to add also that we are very fond of Wishingstars recipe for tuna/pasta salad here! I made it for the first time last year, and DS got pretty addicted to it and had me making it once a week!
