A salad would be nice. Here are a few favorite salad and veggie sides I like:
2-4 bunches broccoli
¼ cup butter
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
½ tsp seasoned salt
Pepper to taste
Steam broccoli until tender-crisp. Drain water. Add next 4 ingredients to hot pan. Stir until coated.
Slice 2 peeled cucumbers. Slice thinly. Add 1 small sliced or chopped red onion. Cover with bottled red wine vinaigrette dressing. Salt and pepper to taste. Best if you let sit in refrigerator for at least an hour.
4 slices bacon
1 lg bowl salad greens
½ chopped red onion
Red Wine Vinegar
In salad bowl, combine the salad and onion. Coat with ¼ cup red wine vinegar, salt and pepper. Chop bacon into little pieces. Cook until crispy. (You may need to add a little olive oil if bacon is very lean). Pour bacon and grease over salad.
Broccoli Cheese Salad
4 cups broccoli, cut into small pieces
1 red onion, chopped
1 cup cubed cheddar cheese
6 slices bacon, cooked, crumbled
Combine above ingredients. Combine 1 cup mayonnaise, ¼ cup sugar, and 2 Tbsp vinegar, salt and pepper to taste. Pour over salad.
Southwestern Ranch Salad
1 pkg. pre-cut salad mix
½ cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1 cup ranch flavored croutons
½ cup ranch flavored almond salad topping
Hidden Valley Spicy Ranch dressing
Salt and pepper to taste
Toss all ingredients together. Serve immediately.
1 8oz pkg. spinach
3 hard boiled eggs
8 mushroom caps, sliced
Toasted slivered almonds (optional)
Combine all ingredients and serve with Hot Bacon Dressing.
Hot Bacon Dressing
½ lb. bacon, chopped
1 cup sugar
1 1/3 cups white vinegar
5 tsp. cornstarch
Fry bacon until crisp, drain and leave bacon drippings in skillet. Add sugar and vinegar to skillet and stir well. Add 1 cup water and bring to a boil. Mix cornstarch with 2/3 cup water, stir until it dissolves and pour into skillet with dressing. Return to boil and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from heat, return bacon to skillet and toss dressing into salad.
