Next week my family arrives. To top all that off, we're having a reunion of the extended family. I don't think we've all (the extendeds) been together since the wake of my great-grandmother some fourteen years ago. There is a strange and wonderful cast of characters let me tell you. I am quite sure there will be stories, especially since the event is in a city (read DRY) park and well... we're Irish and Catholic. So yeah, that should work well.
So you'll have to wait for stories of the crazies, but for now, I'm busy planning a dinner menu for about 25 people. This is just the immediate family folks. Again, Irish Catholic. So I've been searching recipes and have come across a bunch of summery salads that I'd love to try even if they don't work out for this particular meal.
All are from Cooking Light and by clicking, you will be taken to the recipe.
- Curried couscous salad with dried cranberries
- Basmati chicken salad
- Broccoli & apple salad
- Cucumber, mango & black bean salad
- Bread salad with cranberries, spinach, & chicken
- Avacacdo & grapefruit salad with pomegranate seeds

What are some of your summery favorites?
