If you can't stand the heat...

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!

    Poped in from Jennifer's blog and scrolled down to see your genius plan for covering your mop thing. I have one that is similar and would love to give your idea a try. Thanks for sharing your Tuna salad too. *smile* Sincerely, Mommy of two little blessings & so much more!

  3. Mrs. T, this sounds like a plan for dinner tonight...thank you so much for the inspiration.

  4. Susie,

    You are most welcome! I am so glad you like the idea. It makes a huge amount and so we are having the leftovers again tonight, only with some veggie stuffed peppers on the side (plus the leftover focaccia bread from last night).

    Stop in and visit anytime!
