Yummy Summer Salad

Now that the weather is nice enough for regular grilling, I find myself looking for tasty salads to serve alongside the platters of grilled deliciousness.  Here are two of my go-to favorites...

Fresh Tomato Salad
3-4 medium tomatoes, chopped
1/2 medium sweet onion, chopped fine
1/2 cup Red Pepper Vinagrette
Fresh cracked pepper, to taste
  1. Mix tomatoes, onion and dressing together
  2. Add freshly cracked pepper
  3. Dig in to a big bite of summer

Spring Potato Salad
4 large potatoes, peeled and cubed
1 packet Good Seasons Italian Dressing
1/2 cup white wine vinegar
1/2 cup olive oil
2 tablespoons water
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1/2 medium red onion, chopped fine
3-4 radishes, sliced thin

  1. Bring large pot of water to a full boil, add potato cubes and boil for 20 minutes (after 20 minutes, check potato for doneness - continue to boil if not completely cooked through)
  2. While potatoes are boiling, wisk dressing mix with vinegar, water, olive oil and mustard
  3. Drain potatoes and toss with red onion, radishes and prepared dressing
  4. Mix well and chill until serving
