When the weather gets hot, who wants to cook? Salads to the rescue! Here are some fun ideas from around the web when you need a quick dinner without heating up the kitchen! Tex Mex Layered Salad from Recipe Girl

And here's one from me (a family favorite from Katie!):
Spinach Pasta Salad
6 oz spiral pasta, cooked
3 cups chicken, cooked & shredded
1/4 cup green onion, chopped
1/4 cup sesame seeds
Dressing: Mix together the following
1/2 cup oil
1/3 cup soy sauce
1/3 cup vinegar, wine or white
3 T sugar
1/4 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp salt
I usually make half of this for my family as it makes a lot. If you’re not serving right away, either toss right before serving or keep the dressing separate and let your diners put it on themselves.
Thanks for sharing, Katie!
