A Quick and Easy Cold Supper
Some evenings it's just too hot to cook a meal for supper... too hot to even entertain the idea of turning on the stove or the barbeque. I always struggle with new ideas for a cold supper, other than potato salad and a few other common favourites. Tonight I came up with a new pasta salad idea. I cooked some penne and chopped some veggies - red and green peppers, celery, cucumber, red onion, tomato and some raw broccoli. I cooked some frozen peas, and tossed it all together with Kraft Zesty Italian dressing, a good dash of black pepper and some chopped fresh herbs - I used basil and oregano. It was served up with some shaved Black Forest ham, cheddar and a freshly toasted bun. Yummy! Quick and easy! Just the way I like it on a warm evening. What's your favourite easy "cold supper"? Feel free to share your ideas/recipes as a comment.
