I gotta say I’ve never been a huge fan of out standard American potato salad. Of course, that never stops me from eating it if I’m at a barbecue or potluck, but sometimes I wish there was something a little different. Something that wakes up the taste buds. Something a little special. This White & Sweet Potato Salad with Chutney Dressing is all that and more!
My little cherry tomato plant has been a bit stingy, probably because I just put it in a big pot and kind of left in the northeast corner of my back steps for the first half of its miserable existence. Then I tossed it out where there’s some good southern exposure. It was a shock for him. But finally, he adjusted to the August heat and started putting out! So I decided to make Oven Roasted Green Beans & Cherry Tomatoes.
I grew up on Old Fashioned Three Bean Salad and if you’re from the Midwest, I bet you did, too! There’s just nothing like fresh garden beans soaking up all the sweet, tangy marinade!
It’s a perfect summer salad for a potluck or to have on hand to fill out dinners or lunches. On a hot day, Old Fashioned Three Bean Salad is so cool and refreshing!
I’ve been on a bit of a Meditteranean kick. I’m trying to health up the rest of the summer, at least until Labor Day comes. Besides it’s August and it’s hot and it’s humid (whine whine whine) and I want to eat (and cook) cool and light. And so I made Greek Brown Rice Salad to go with my
soon to be posted Spicy Beef & Feta Skewers.
I just did a post for Horiatiki Greek Salad not too long ago. Gosh, that was good. And I wanted to carry some of those flavors forward with a little twist. Funny how I listed so many variations of our American Style Greek Salads, but I didn’t mention or think about combining it with rice, let alone brown rice.
