I’ve decided to start a new category here at This Week for Dinner – Simple Side Dishes. I don’t always put much thought into side dishes, and I would guess that I’m not alone. Sometimes all it takes is for someone to remind me of a side or point out an easy way to prepare a vegetable and I’m good to go. So, whenever I discover or re-discover a simple (e.g. fast, minimal ingredients, easy prep) side, I’ll be sure to share it with you!
How about a nice salad today?
- Candied pecans (yes, candy-ing them is pretty easy, but to keep it really simple, jut buy them!)
- Feta cheese
- Strawberries, sliced
- Poppyseed Dressing (or Brianna’s Blush Wine Vinaigrette)
- Mix together!
- ¾ tablespoon poppy seeds
- ⅓ cup vinegar
- ⅓ cup sugar
- ¾ cup vegetable oil
- ¾ tablespoon grated red onion
- ¾ teaspoon salt
- ⅓ teaspoon dry mustard
- Mix all the ingredients, and preferably let it sit a few hours before serving so the flavors can combine.
