Where Quick and Easy Is Heading

Summer is upon us and I think we can never have enough cool menus to serve unexpected company or even our family. We will sneak in some grill items to accent our cold items.

When shopping for ingredients don’t forget to grab a bunch of sunflowers to add to your summer fun. Hope everyone had a great Memorial weekend and stayed safe.

What You Need


  • 1-1/2 lb. cooked thinly sliced deli roast beef, cut into strips or leftover roast beef
  • 5 cups baby spinach leaves
  • 1-1/2 cups sliced on the bias celery 
  • thinly sliced red onions
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/8 tsp. pepper
  • German salad dressing


    ce celery and onions. Make German salad dressing (can be made ahead of time.)  Add celery, onions and beef to greens. Pour dressing around the bowl and work ingredients into dressing to coat.

  • 1 tablespoon powdered sugar
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 teaspoons ketchup
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon prepared dijon mustard
  • salt and pepper to taste

    Put ingredients in a jar and shake to combine, pour over greens and beef just before serving..

    Tip: If you pour your dressing around the bowl, and move the greens into the dressing, you will not over dress your salad.
