I am kind of embarrassed to share my most favorite side dish/salad as of late. I have so many good friends that whip up some good homemade dishes in no time at all and then tell me how quick and easy the recipe is...and then I am left in the grocery not even knowing where the first ingredient is even found. It's not my gift OK!? But I LOVE these quick boxes of Suddenly Salads from good old Betty Crocker. It's not the best nutritionally to grab a box and make pasta salad but it's great for parties, last minute company and BBQ's. I love the taste too. I think my favorite, which I am taking to a party tonight, is the Southwestern Salad. The best part, their super affordable. I have found them for less than $1.50 a box. Stock up and you are set.
