Greek Pasta Salad

I’m always looking for dishes to bring to potlucks and a cold pasta salad is a perfect make-ahead dish that is good for hot weather. One of my favorite salads is a classic Greek salad. Naturally, I would turn those flavors into different dishes just like I did with my Spinach and Artichoke Dip Chicken Enchildas and Creamy Spinach and Artichoke Soup because of my love for spinach and artichoke dip.

Here is a delicious Greek Pasta Salad (I see a Greek Potato salad in my future!) that I created for Litehouse Foods. Their new OPA dips are created with Greek yogurt. I love using Greek yogurt in place of sour cream and cheeses because it provides a creamy taste and texture with fewer calories and a lot of protein! By using Greek yogurt in these dips, Litehouse has created a dip with fewer calories but flavorful taste!

It’s almost the fourth of July and chances are you might be grilling to celebrate Independence Day. Let’s hope the weather is beautiful so we can enjoy the day off from work, go to the parades and of course- fireworks!

Here are a few recipes to make your steak extra delicious! These steak toppings are: tomato, basil and balsamic and mushroom, onion and blue cheese and are grilled on foil on the grill right along side your steak.

One Pan Sweet and Spicy Baked Chicken and Potatoes

One Pan Sweet and Spicy Baked Chicken and Potatoes

I’m always looking for one pan meals because I like the ease of throwing everything in one pan and calling it dinner. Clean up is easier too, which is always good.

This Sweet and Spicy Baked Chicken and Potatoes recipe spice level can be tailored to your family’s tastes, but I love how the fresh salad on top off-sets a bit of the heat.

I only make one meal for dinner. I don’t make several meals based on who likes what. That would be crazy, but I have heard of people that do it. With recipes like this, however, I can omit the spices for a picky eater and they can just have plain chicken with a side salad. Small changes like this in a recipe do not take much effort.

I made this recipe for the Litehouse Foods website. Head on over there to check out this recipe and many more that I’ve done!
