We had a family blowout this past weekend. Every time the family, or part of the family gets together, there is always some new recipe that gets passed around. Since this was just a mini-blowout there was only one newbie for the cookbook. I’m not sure what to call it, but I’ll call it good !! dsc03293

I know it doesn’t look like much, but it is quite tasty.

    Reunion Salad

      1 bag shredded lettuce
      2/3 cup chopped purple cabbage (for color)
      1/4 cup olive salad (Boscoli is my brand)
      1 cup Shredded cheddar
      Pesto Ranch Dressing (or any Ranch if you cannot find) to taste
      Package (or can) fried onion (French’s or salad topping)

    Mix together all ingredients except shredded cheese, onions, and dressing. Add dressing to taste. Mix in onions and top with shredded cheese. Don’t mix in the onions until right before devouring. They will get soft.

Thanks to my ‘sis’ for this one…..

Also on the menu – Hot Water Cornbread, Fried Catfish, Hushpuppies, sausage and 5 different desserts (It was a birthday party!!) We were all happy by the end of the day and very, very full.
