The Taste Is In The Sauce

The month of June has been about basic sauces for salads and entrees.  They add healthy taste to recurring favorites like Potato Salad, Macaroni Salad and Bean Enchiladas.  These are standbys at our house during the summer.  The salads are great vegetarian main dishes when it’s hot and Enchiladas with just a touch of heat make the day seem cooler.

To tell the truth, I’ve been looking for a good macaroni salad dressing for years.  Finally developed one that takes a lot of ingredients but it’s worth it.  The potato salad dressing could be used for spinach and tomatoes or other green salad combinations and uses feta cheese.

The Enchilada sauce is homemade.  No more buying expensive yellow cans at the store.   So, which recipe do you want?  I will let the readers decide.  Reply to this message and vote for Potato Salad, Macaroni Salad, or Enchilada Sauce.

90 Day Vegan Adventure Day 10 Retro-Eating

When planning the evening meal I think about what my grandparents ate during the summer.  They raised families during the depression and lived on small farms with chickens, pigs, vegetable gardens, and a variety of fruit trees.  New potatoes cooked in their jackets, freshly picked corn on the cob and ripe tomatoes were standard fare this time of year.  This evening we had black-eyed peas, corn and collard greens from the garden.  The flavors are complementary and I feel deeply satisfied when I’m finished.  This is retro-eating at it’s finest.
