Then make something cold for supper tonight! This is what I have prepared and waiting in the fridge:
I clipped this recipe from a Woman's Day Collector's Cookbook insert some years ago. I had it stuck in an old cookbook -- the sort with "magnetic" pages -- and hadn't thought of it in years. The recipe floated out of the cookbook one day as I paged through it. It's actually very good! I have made the salad several times now. One nice thing is that it uses very basic ingredients that most people will have on hand. I like to make the salad with mini penne pasta.
I'll trim the bowl with tomato slices and romaine leaves before serving.
And I am planning on baking a quick pan of focaccia bread -- only 12-15 minutes in the oven --to go alongside our salad!
A Christmasy finished project!
