Easter will be here on Sunday, April 8th. I don’t have any small children around so I won’t be making Easter baskets. I may still make some Bunny Cookie Pops just for the kid in all of us. This year we will be having a baked ham, Sweet Potato Gnocchi, Vegetable Casserole and a Summer Salad. For dessert I’m thinking maybe a Bunny Cake and/or Cheesecake depending who is coming over for dinner
I am buying a ham at the grocery store but will not be getting the spiral cut ham as it is almost twice as much per pound. In the next couple of days I will be posting recipes for the other menu items so you can give them a try. Today we’ll start with the Summer Salad recipe.
4 c. torn mixed greens
15 oz. Can dark red kidney beans, drained
11 oz can mandarin oranges, drained OR 1 med. Orange sectioned
1 c. chopped celery
1 c. shredded carrots
¼ c. sliced green onion
¼ c. vegetable oil
2 tbsp. Vinegar
2 tbsp. Sugar
1 tbsp. Chopped fresh parsley or 1 tsp dried parsley
¼ tsp. Salt
Dash liquid red pepper sauce
In salad bowl, combine greens, beans, oranges, celery, carrot & onions. In small jar, combine remaining ingredients; shake well. Pour over salad; toss lightly.
