Summer Salad Recipe

Guest Author - Cavelle Natasha Layes

This is a family recipe which is brought out every year during the summer
months. It is the perfect recipe for when we put away that hearty winter menu and are looking for a lighter one to replace it.
This side goes great with just about anything, try it with a pork or beef roast, chicken, or pork chops, it also makes a great addision to any barbeque.

1 Package Rotini
1 Large Cucumber
2 Medium Tomoato
1 Bunch Green Onion
1 Medium Green Pepper
2/3 Cup White Sugar
1/2 Cup Salad Oil
1/3 Cup Ketchup
1/4 Cup Vinegar
Salt and Pepper to Taste
1 Tbsp Paprika


Cook Rotini until just tender, it is very important that you do not overcook the pasta! Drain rotini and let cool, putting the pasta in the fridge for a short period will help cool the it much faster. While the rotini is cooling you can go ahead and cut up your veggies.

Peel your cucumber and cut lengthwise. With a spoon scrape out seeds and dice cucumber into little cubes. Next take your tomoato and cut it in half, remove the seeds and dice up into small cubes as well. Seed your green pepper and diced the same way you have the others. Finally chop up your green onion into small pieces. To add a twist to this recipe and turn it from a tastey side to a mouthwatering main meal simply add some chicken pieces. Another addition that can be made is finely chopped red onions.

Now its time to prepare the sauce (I always double up on it), mix together white sugar, salad oil, ketchup, vinegar, salt & pepper and paprika. Depending on your sweet tooth you may want to adjust the sugar measurement. When well blended add the mixture to your rotini which should be cooled by now. Last but not least stir in your veggies and your done! I personally rather this side be served chilled, so when preparing I allow for an extra hour to place the dish in the fridge before serving.

If you have kids get them to help you out while preparing this simple recipe. It is very child friendly all you need to do is cut up the veggies and guide them through the rest. Not only is it alot of fun for both of you but it will give your child a sense of pride in the finished result (and picky eaters are more likely to eat something that they have created).
