Happy Monday my friends! Here we are again, kicking off another great week! Summer is winding down for us, as school starts tomorrow. We are still enjoying the bounties of Summer, grilling outside and the gorgeous weather. Oh and let’s not forget, the winner of the Fisher Nuts Prize Pack was Penny from Texas.
At the beginning of the month, when we put together the August Menu Plan, we thought it would be good to add a new recipe once each week to the menu so that we could give them a try and share with you. Last week we shared the Asian Pineapple Chicken from the Better Homes and Gardens Make and Take Cookbook, and told you about how almost everything single recipe in that book is now on our list.
Well, today we have another delicious recipe from the same book, Deviled Egg Salad. Doug and all the boys love deviled eggs, so adding them to a fresh salad with bacon was a stroke of genius. Do you struggle with cooking the perfect hard boiled egg? We have some tips that might just surprise you!
The salad itself, is pretty straight forward with lettuce, tomatoes, peppers and onions, but the addition of bacon, deviled eggs and the Fresh Dill Vinaigrette set it apart from the ordinary.
The Dill Vinaigrette gives the salad an extra kick and adds the refreshing tastes of dill and garlic to what some might consider an ordinary salad. We had the opportunity to try some of the Gourmet Garden Herbs. They are fresh herbs that come in a tube, available in the produce section. Often times we have purchased fresh herbs, garlic and even ginger for a recipe, to have it later go bad because we couldn’t use it all. With Gourmet Garden Herbs, that doesn’t happen, you squeeze out the amount you need and store the rest in the fridge. We are quickly falling in love with them, and looking forward to trying all the different herbs they offer.
