Need a few ideas for a summer salad?

We had a salad luncheon today in the Fons & Porter office.  Tiffiny, our Customer Service Manager, is celebrating her 40th birthday and what a better way than with food!   Everyone brought a gift that included 40 of “something” –  40 bouncy balls, 40 malt balls, 40 Life Savers -you get the idea!

All the food was wonderful.  Everyone shared a favorite salad and a few new ones were tested. Here are recipes for a couple of our favorites:  BBQ Chicken Salad , from All, was a real hit!  Another that got rave reviews was the Corn Taco Salad from our Technical Editor, Kristine Peterson.  It was an unusual combination of ingredients that was absolutely yummy!

Recipe :

2 cans corn, drained, 1 green pepper, chopped, 1/2 red onion, chopped, 2 cups sharp cheddar, shredded,  1/2 cup mayo and salt and pepper to taste. Mix together and just before serving, add 1 bag of Chili-Cheese Fritos!

You can’t have a birthday without cake!  Sharon, our Retail Manager brought in Italian Cream Cake which everyone just loved. The recipe is on our site along with plenty of other great recipes.  Kuddos to Sharon for bringing in cake on her way out of town on vacation.  Too bad she won’t get any 🙂

We’re always looking for reasons to celebrate around here and have our next food day planned…it’s themed “State Fair Foods” so stay tuned!

  1. I have enjoyed you for long time but I do miss the Bernia machines and info I got about them from your instructions. Keep up the good work althought I know for one know that you will have to slow down a lot in the future.
