Life and Dinner doesn't get much easier or more delicious than this quick and easy main dish salad. Perfect for those hot dog days of summer that we still have to look forward to......
The Fish Friday Foodies are making Summer Salads this month.......
I am happy to be hosting and asked the others to join me in sharing Fish/Seafood Salads for these last days of August when, at least here in Michigan, the weather is sultry. Let's take a look at what everyone brought to the party.......
- Anthony Bourdain’s Tuna Salad Sandwiches from Palatable Pastime
- Seafood Salad Tacos from Karen’s Kitchen Stories
- Shrimp Pasta Salad from Sneha’s Recipe
- Tortellini Salad with Grill Roasted Shrimp, Tomato and Green Beans from A Day in the Life on the Farm
This salad is great for those nights when you don't feel like spending much time preparing a dinner but still want something delicious and nutritious. This dish is great as a light dinner but can also be used as a side dish that you can be proud to take to an end of the summer potluck.
Simply toss your shrimp, green beans and grape tomatoes with some olive oil, salt and pepper and place them into a grill pan over med high heat, tossing and turning until shrimp is pink, tomatoes are softened and beans are crisp tender.
Combine the shrimp and vegetables with cheese tortellini that has been cooked per package directions.
Add a desired amount of Sweet Italian Dressing and toss to coat. This can be served warm, room temperature or cold. It is delicious whatever temperature you choose. I use Marzetti Sweet Italian Dressing. They did not sponsor this post, I just think that their Sweet Italian Dressing is the best. If you haven't tried it, please do and let me know if you agree.
Fish Friday Foodies are a group of bloggers that get together on the 3rd Friday of each month to share recipes based on an ingredient or theme chosen by one of the members. We love welcoming new members to our group. If you are a food blogger and seafood lover and would like to join in the fun please leave your name and email in the comments below so that I can send you and invitation.
Easy meals are always welcome, especially when you find yourself very busy as I am right at the moment. Today will be spent in the kitchen getting ready for our family reunion that is going to be held at a hall tomorrow and then continue at our house on Sunday.
We are having the reunion catered, however I am also making up a roaster of Stuffed Cabbages and Roz is making up Kielbasa and Sauerkraut to add to the buffet. We both will be using Mom Klik's recipes for these dishes.
I am also smoking a brisket today. This will be turned into BBQ Beef for sandwiches tomorrow as out of town guests gather at our house before heading home after the weekend.
Tuesday is my birthday and Wednesday we are heading to a cottage that we have rented for a week. On Thursday we will be going to a The Farm Restaurant near the cottage. I have been wanting to try this restaurant for year.
