I have a friend recovering from surgery and made some delicious salads for her. These are my go-to recipes I take for meals when someone has surgery, a new baby, needs a pick-me-up.

I usually send a bag of whole wheat rolls and a dessert along with them. The recipes make enough for my family and the family I’m taking them too and are so summery!

Pimento Cheese
1 brick extra sharp cheddar shredded
1 brick sharp cheddar
1 4 oz jar pimentos
1 bunch of green onions chopped finely – some of the green part too
Mayo – however much you like
Here’s the secret – Tony’s Creole seasoning! As much or little as you like OR cayenne pepper

Chicken salad – everything to taste on this too:
2 cans boneless chicken breast
grapes or craisins
celery optional

Pasta Salad – everything’s to taste…

Cheese Tortellini – frozen kind you boil for 3 minutes, drained and cooled
grape tomatoes sliced
black olives sliced
feta cheese
fresh spinach
Kraft Tuscan Italian dressing

Cookie Bars
Nestle Tollhouse recipe on the back of the bag but I substitute one cup of flour with quick cooking oats.
Spread in a casserole dish and bake at 375 for approx 20 minutes. Cool, cut and YUM!
