LOKO April 2008: Southwest Salad

Author: swampkitty05  //  Category: Food Blogging Event, Food Porn, Recipes

One of the biggest holidays in April is Earth Day, and this month (every month, actually), the Lights Out, Knives Out challenge asks us to make a dish that uses as little electricity as possible. So a salad seemed like a natural choice. Since last night was all about Tex-Mex, southwestern flavors, what better starter than a Southwest Salad?

This was quite simple to make, required no electric or real work at all, and went quite well with the pasta dish. I used this recipe as a guide, but used ready made tortilla strips and spicy ranch dressing rather than making my own using regular ranch as a base. I’m looking forward to doing this one again in summer when I can get local tomatoes and corn.

    I have bookmarked this one, in the summer when all the farmers markets are open we eat a lot of salads, this would be a main course for me 🙂

    I have been browsing online more than 3 hours today, yet
    I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It is pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all
    site owners and bloggers made just right content as you probably did, the net will be
    a lot more helpful than ever before.

    I do not know if it’s just me or if perhaps everyone else encountering problems with your website.
    It appears as though some of the written text within your
    posts are running off the screen. Can someone else please provide feedback and let me
    know if this is happening to them as well? This could be a issue with my internet browser because I’ve had this happen before.
    Many thanks

    An outstanding share! I have just forwarded this onto a coworker who
    has been conducting a little homework on this. And he actually bought me breakfast simply because I stumbled upon it for him…
    lol. So allow me to reword this…. Thanks for the meal!!
    But yeah, thanks for spending time to talk about this subject here on your web site.

    First off I would like to say fantastic blog!
    I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you do not mind.
    I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your mind prior to writing.
    I’ve had a hard time clearing my mind in getting my ideas out there.
    I truly do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first
    10 to 15 minutes are generally lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints?
    Cheers!

    Oh my goodness! Awesome article dude! Thank you so much,
    However I am going through troubles with your RSS.
    I don’t know the reason why I can’t subscribe to it. Is there anyone else having similar RSS issues?

    Anyone who knows the answer can you kindly respond? Thanks!!

    Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.
