Eating easy in the summertime with Suddenly Salad

In the summer, I feel like 75% of the time, we're barbecuing. Of course, some of the easiest ways to round out a great hamburger or hot dog on the grill is with a salad, or some corn on the cob, or some pasta salad, and now I'm drooling...

I love having a box of Suddenly Salad on hand always, because I never know when I'll end up just tossing together a pasta salad to go with dinner. Especially on these summer nights. Betty Crocker Suddenly Salad is something that I love to keep in the cabinet. Its nice to know that all I'll have to do is boil some pasta, add in the seasonings a
nd the oil or mayo, and I've got a great pasta salad super quick. Without me having to put much thought into it at all! Of course you can jazz up Suddenly Salad lots of ways, adding cubed cooked chicken can turn your pasta salad from a side dish into a meal. I'm definitely wanting to try out the turkey chutney pasta salad recipe that they have listed! On the Suddenly Salad site you can find lots of other great ways to put a different spin on your Suddenly Salad. While at the site you can even grab a coupon to save on your next Suddenly Salad purchase.

Want to win Suddenly Salad prize package?? Tell me what you do to add a little extra to your pasta salad! Or how do you make BBQ'in easier on yourself? This prize package contains the new Suddenly Salad Greek, an insulated tote, a serving bowl and a storage container.

I add pepperoni and shredded cheese to my Italian pasta salads. To make BBQ easier I have my hubs do it. He loves to grill so I figure why should I do something I hate when he likes it.

MOMFOREVERANDEVER July 26, 2010 at 6:41 PM  

I add green and red peppers- to make bbq easier fill a blow up pool with ice for drinks and watermelon to chill and pam the grill
