Recipe Swap II - Summer Salad

So yesterday I posted a recipe swap for a family favorite. Today I'm showing one for a summer salad.  If you make any of these recipes and you liked them, let me know.  If you didn't like them, you don't need to let me know. lol  

This was a pain in the arse.  It took me forever to come up with this simple design. I had it all put together and I realized I forgot to type the name of the recipe on it.  Argh!  So I had to somehow put it on there. This is what I came up with.  I typed and printed them out then used a banner die to cut them out.

When I showed it to Mark his first response was, "there's no cherries in there".  Why did you stamp a cherry.  Seriously!  I told him I was taking liberties.

Recipe Swap - Family Favorite

When Mark and I first got married I had a ton of Taste of Home annual cookbooks.  Never having to cook really I was at a loss on what to make for dinner.  I decided to try this recipe and the rest is history. I've been making this going on 8 years. It still remains one of our favorite recipes.

What better recipe to share with a great group of ladies from a site I love to visit.  I learned something about myself when doing this swap.  I need to have a purpose to use my supplies. I've never had so much fun then when I was doing these swaps.

When having a purpose to using my supplies I never once thought about hoarding anything. Everything was fair game. Well as long as I had multiples of 8 since I had to do that many.

 So without further ado here's the first recipe.  I'll be back tomorrow with the other one that I signed up to do.
