Ready to eat!
1 Bag of salad mix or 1 head of iceberg lettuce chopped
1 lb. ground turkey
1 pkt. Low Sodium Taco Seasoning
2 Tomatoes, diced
1/2 small onion, diced
1 Can Pinto Beans, drained and rinsed
1 Can White Shoepeg Corn, drained
1 Pkg. Shredded Cheese
Ranch and French dressing (I use Hidden Valley light Ranch and Ken's Light Honey French)
DIRECTIONS: Brown ground turkey and onion; add taco seasoning (following directions on back of taco seasoning pack), remove from heat and cool. Place lettuce in large bowl. Add tomatoes, pinto beans, corn and cheese. Now, you can do one of two things....add the taco meat directly to the salad and top with dressings and corn chips OR you can place some salad on a plate and top with turkey, dressing and chips. I did the latter because I didn't want soggy chips in my leftover salad.

Last Friday my market friend and I were perusing the aisles and taking in all the smells, sites and tastes of Lancaster's Central Market we passed by "The Goodie Shoppe" stand and she had this pasta salad that looked fantastic. I was to impatient to wait in line to purchase some so I made a mental note to myself that I needed to try and re-create the salad in some way! Well, let me tell you....with produce from Meck's anything is possible!
Here is what I came up with:
1 Cup Baby Spinach
1 Container Grape Tomatoes, halved
1 Rotisserie Chicken
1 Block Smoked Mozzarella Cheese
1/2 of a red onion, diced
Directions: Cook pasta according to package directions. Rinse under cold water and place in large bowl. Pick the chicken and add to pasta. Add spinach, onion and tomatoes. Dice the mozzarella cheese and add to the pasta mix. For the dressing: 1/2 C. White Vinegar, 2 T. Honey, 1 T. Dijon Mustard, 1/2 tsp. pepper, 2 Tsp. salt, 2 Garlic cloves-minced, 1 C. Oil. Whisk together all ingredients, except oil. Once other ingred. are mixed, slowly add oil, while whisking. Pour over salad and mix. Refrig. 4 hours or until ready to serve.

We are year-round grillers, but once summer hits, we grill alot more! Here is a fun, quick, easy dinner idea! It is a great idea for entertaining, too! Just set out a bunch of different toppings and let your guests make their own!!
Pizza on the grill!
Here are the variety of toppings that I used; for the sake of simplicity tonight, I even used the pre-made pizza shells! These are ones that I find a SKH~much better than the other name brand ones.....
