EASY BREEZY SUMMER DISHES

The weather changed from cold and wet to hot and humid overnight this week-end causing me to  change my plans for the back-yard barbecue. We moved indoors to enjoy the comfort of  the air conditioner so we had an indoor picnic and no ants...  I made potato and rice salad, deviled eggs, corn on the cob. Nothing fancy but eye pleasing and easy to make. Ofcourse my husband was in charge of the barbecue and he didn't complain about the heat,  so that was good. 




POTATO SALAD:
4-5 Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled, diced and boiled
1 Cup of  mayonnaise
1/2 Cup sour cream
2 Tablespoons of  Dijon mustard
1/2 Red Onion finely chopped
2 Stalks of celery finely chopped
1 Hard boiled egg
10  Pimentos or  green olives sliced (save some for decoration)

*salt and pepper to taste

In a large bowl  mix boiled potatoes with onions, celery and olives. In a separate bowl combine mayonnaise, mustard, and sour cream and pour over the potato mixture stirring gently. Decorate with eggs and olives. Enjoy.


RICE SALAD:

2 Cups of rice, boiled and drained
1/2 Cup each, red, green and orange peppers, chopped
2 Cloves of garlic minced
4 Sprigs of dill and parsley chopped
Vinegrette dressing

Mix all the ingredients in a large bowl cover and refregerate. Enjoy
*salt and pepper to taste. 


DEVILED EGGS

After separating the yolks I mixed them with mustard, mayonnaise and curry powder and topped them with olive tapenade and sprinkled with red pepper.  Enjoy!
