Any other summer type recipes would be appreciated as well.
Thanks in advance!!

We had a hot summer here and I made alot of pasta salad.
Cook rotini noodles according to package directions.....drain....rinse with cold water....add cut up tomato, diced cucumber, and I would add some broccoli....or any other veggie that you like. Pour Italian salad dressing over and let sit for flavors to blend.
One really easy one that I made is.... 2 bags of corn chips....toss with small bottle of Russian salad dressing and serve. Chips will go soggy if you leave it too long, but is great when eaten right away.

We also do pasta salad like Darlene and add mozzerella cheese cubes, pepperoni slices and carrot discs. :)
sounds simples because it is....make your favorite garden salad....we use cold fried chicken, or you can cook up some chicken tenders from your freezer....toss in some oriental crunchy noodles, and some sesame / or poppyseed dressing...

Best Chicken Pasta Salad
2 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
3/4 cup steak sauce
1 (12 ounce) package fusilli pasta
2 cubes chicken bouillon
1 Vidalia onion, diced
2 avocados - peeled, pitted and diced
1 cup halved cherry tomatoes
1 cup Ranch-style salad dressing
1. Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat. Place breasts into a glass baking dish and marinate in steak sauce for 15 to 60 minutes. 2. Grill chicken until no longer pink and the juices run clear. Remove from grill, and chop into bite-size pieces. 3. To a large pot of boiling water, add bouillon cubes and pasta. Cook pasta until al dente. Drain, and rinse under cold water. 4. In a large bowl, combine chicken, pasta, onion, avocados and tomatoes. Mix in salad dressing, cover, and refrigerate until chilled.
This is REALLY good... :)

That sounds really good Diane. Do use A1 steak sauce or something else? Also, I'm the only one here who like avacodos - would cheese cubes or something else be good with it?
