“I was making a Mexican themed dinner one night last summer, and figured I’d make a salad with the fresh produce I had. I threw in anything that reminded me of Mexican food. Thankfully, it turned out, and the combination of salsa and ranch dressing is one we now use on sandwiches burgers and more, “ writes Heather Byers from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
Nothing beats the flavor of grilled vegetables, and this is a super way to use your garden bounty. I grill the veggies anytime I'm grilling something else, then whip up the salad and put it in the fridge to marinate. It's even better the next day.
