I’m always looking for fun summer salads. The kind that is perfect to serve at home and/or take to a cookout or party. This Avocado Tomato Bacon Pasta Salad has a little Southwestern flair and fits the bill. Best of all, the fabulousness just doesn’t stop with this Avocado Tomato Bacon Pasta Salad.
Sometimes you just need an epic burger and for me, that sometimes is a summer gathering or maybe a summer holiday. That’s when you need a knock your socks off show stopper of a burger. And if it’s messy, who cares when it’s these Southwestern Queso Burgers!
I don’t know if any of you guys watch Diners Drive-Ins & Dives but I swear it’s becoming an issue at my house. I might need a support group! That’s where I got the idea of Bahn Mi Street Tacos. They’re def a play on American Southern and Mexican with just a touch of Asian tossed in the mix. And just when you might think you’re bored of street tacos…this one is surprising in over the top flavor. A little crazy, even, but it just works!
I must be getting old and decrepit (better than the alternative, as they say!) and for sure, I find my memory slipping a bit here and there. (What did I come into this room for is just the beginning, lol!) After I made this Classic Crazy Broccoli Salad I remembered I already have another version here on my site. That one is a lighter no Mayo version. So that’s why I’m calling this one “Classic.” (And it really is!)
This recipe isn’t exactly “new” to my site, but this fabulous Herby Lemon Vinaigrette really needs its own place to live. In the past, it’s been part of my Cold Tuna Salad with Green Beans but this dressing is so versatile, you might want to try it on different salads, maybe use it as a marinade and maybe even drizzle it over any simply cooked or grilled fish or chicken.
