Time for another Muffin Tin Monday! Recently when we had a hot stretch I had cravings for a lighter supper and wanted to make some salad type dishes. So I made a simple pasta salad (in a lemon juice/olive oil/pressed garlic dressing) and a salmon salad. I wasn't sure the kids would actually eat the salmon salad, since I don't think I've ever made it before. Cort adored it, and Pierce ate all of his. Reid was the only one that wouldn't touch it. The kids had theirs with breadsticks, and they got preacher cookies for dessert. Incidentally, I substituted 1 tsp of coconut oil for the 1 tsp of butter that my preacher cookie recipe calls for, and it gave them a different (but quite tasty) flavor.
Muffin Tin Mom.
I love pasta salad "! But i never get mine in a heart shaped bowl. :) have a great day
I made a big pasta salad yesterday too... at Hubby's request. It's one we have been making for years and a great pleaser during the summer months. Yours looks good too!!
Oh Lisa it is breakfast time here and I am craving salmon. Looks delicious. B
The perfect summer meal. I have never tried salmon salad, but like salmon, so must give it a try.
I love salad season! It seems to be the only way that I can get my 2 year old to eat his veggies.
My DIL makes an AWESOME pasta salad...and did I hear you mention preacher cookies (which are???)???...:)JP
I think these look delicious! I love the cookies!
You always have the best ideas! How cute are these!
Olá Lisa, almoço com belo aspecto...Espectacular....
That looks like a great light lunch. We need to do those too, it is getting HOT here!
Delicious! My DS loves Salmon! I make Salmon Dip and he goes crazy for it. I really like Salmon Dip too! I would enjoy eating this meal too! :)
Thanks for sharing!
I wish I liked seafood or even mayonnaise because it leaves so many things out for me. :(
not really sure i'd enjoy salmon salad either. :)
Yummmmmmm. That's all I can say. It all looks so good.
I love pasta salads because you can change them up so easily.
Salads in hot weather are the best!
A yummy lunch!! And I bet Reid will like salmon salad some day:)
I've never heard of preacher cookies-but they look good too!
These hot, humid days are definitely the kind of days calling for a lite evening meal!
I love this! Everything looks so tasty. Hope you enjoy the afternoon.
You've captured the notion that food should be fun!!!
Thanks for the salmon and pasta salad inspiration! I'm sure the kiddies would love it! I have never heard of preacher cookies but they sound delish! :)
How did you make the salmon salad???
Pasta salads=summer! Yours look good.
A nice Idea to level out the portions with those small dishes. Richard
Such a cool idea!
I DO love the idea of it being salad season. :)
Summer salads are the BEST... and easy too. The cookie looks good.. It all looks good, but the cookie caught my eye. Probably because it is something I can't have.
We just read this, and now we are hungry- but its time for bed!
I've been substituting a little coconut oil in my recipes for the shortening and I love the results!
Getting 2 out of 3 to eat salmon salad is pretty good! Pasta salad looks delicious.
Looks yummy. Do you have the recipe for the salmon salad?
I love pasta salad and cooler, lighter dinners in the summer. And, what are preacher cookies? I've never heard of them, but they look good!
