Recipe~ Classic Garden Salad- no recipe
Changes~ For this salad I just took some tomatoes, carrots, and cucumbers from our garden to throw together your classic garden salad.
The Stars~ carrots, tomatoes, cucumbers
Recommend~Garden salads are a great way to use up any veggies in your fridge. Almost anything is good in a salad.

Recipe~ Spinach, Cherry Salad
Changes~ I used orzo instead of quinoa because that’s what I had
The Stars~ Cherries, Brussel Sprouts, and Oranges
Recommend~ Next time we make this we’ll try a different vinaigrette. We thought this dressing was just a bit bland.

Recipe~ Pasta Salad with Peas, Ham and Peppers
Changes~ I based my salad off of this recipe but added orange peppers to it and left out the olives.
The Stars~ Peas, Ham, Orange peppers
Recommend~ This is a great summer salad and pretty easy to throw together. Try different pastas and use fresh ham (rather than the pre-cubed, pre-packaged kind) when possible.

Recipe~ Iceberg Wedge with Homemade Bacon Ranch dressing
Changes~ none
The Stars~ the dressing
Recommend~ We love wedge salads and this ranch dressing was pretty good, although it ended up being a little on the thick side.

Hopefully I’ll have the last four salads ready to post next week and then we can round this challenge up finally!
