Slaw is always a pretty good side dish at a bbq.

Honey Orange Slaw with Beans
1/3 cup cider vinegar
1/3 cup honey
3 tablespoons frozen orange juice concentrate
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 teaspoons poppy seeds
1 (15 oz) can of red kidney beans
1 (15 oz) can of garbonzo beans (chick peas)
1 (15 oz) can kidney beans
2 cups thinly sliced red cabbage
1/3 cup raisins
1/3 cup dried apricots, sliced thin
1/3 cup walnut pieces

In a bowl mix together vinegar, honey, orange juice concentrate, oil and poppy seeds. Do not just put them in the bowl, mix it up.
In a larger bowl combine the remaining ingredients, drizzle the dressing over them and toss to coat.


Lemon Yogurt Slaw

1/2 cup plain yogurt
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
2 tablespoons minced fresh chives
5-6 cups shredded cabbage

Whisk together lemon juice, sugar, feta cheese and chives. Pour over cabbage and toss.

I must snack now,

How about some baked beans?

I cut up some bacon and remove most of the fat.
Dice some onions and fry them in the same pan as the bacon.

Then add the bacon and onions to a large can of baked beans.
Also add some ketchup, mustard and brown sugar.
Mix well and bake for 25 minutes at 350.

Sorry, I don't really have amounts I
just throw it all in a pan.

How about a pan of brownies, for later? They always seem to go over well here.

REC: Pizza Pasta Salad

I make this salad all summer long - seems like once a week or so. My husband is a cyclist & this is his favorite thing for carbs. I am to the point where I don't need to refer to the recipe anymore because I make it so often. I am always looking for the latest, greatest things but people don't want to try something different - they only want THIS pasta salad. I use Barilla's Cellentani pasta. I quarter the pepperoni slices so it's easier to eat. (If you cut the pepperoni slices right out of the freezer, it doesn't all stick together.) For the cheese I use a block of Kraft Colby Jack - also kept in the freezer. When I take it out & defrost it, it pretty much crumbles so I don't have to dice it. I think a whole pound is a little much & I am the ultimate cheese lover. I would start out with 1/2 to 3/4 lb. You can also use shredded cheese.

Pizza Pasta Salad

1 pound spiral macaroni cooked and drained
3 medium tomatoes diced & seeded
1 pound cheddar cheese diced
1 bunch green onions (to 2 bunches) sliced
3 ounces pepperoni slices
3/4 cup vegetable oil
2/3 cup Parmesan cheese grated
1/2 cup red wine vinegar
2 teaspoons dried oregano
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
croutons optional

Instructions: In large bowl, combine macaroni, tomatoes, cheddar cheese, green onions & pepperoni.

In small bowl, combine oil, Parmesan cheese, vinegar & seasonings; pour over macaroni mixture.

Cover & refrigerate for several hours.

Top with croutons just before serving if desired.

Brainschef - I've never heard of deepfrying pasta. Talk me through it; what kind of oil do you use and at what temp? Sounds interesting.

I use olive oil in a fry daddy, just about 365* F. It doesn't take long for the "chips" to get crisp, so you will hav eto try one or two out first. Time them, mine take about 15 to 30 seconds, sometimes a little longer depending on the humidity level.

I boil the pasta in salted water until just about al dente, as it will continue to cook, after it is drained. Dont' rinse the pasta. Immediately flip a handful onto brown paper or paper towel, to get all the ater off.

I now try a piece or two to time the frying. You want it to have the same "bite" as a potato chip, crisp. When you have your time down, you lower them into the deep fryer. Lift them out and drain them well, sprinkle with herbs, spices and cheeses.

If you put them into a tightly sealed container the will last the week before going stale. I have only been able to try this once as my DH will eat them until there is nothing left in the bowl.

The tri colored pasta make for a pretty dish although any type of pasta would do. I have often thought about trying whole wheat and wonder if it will have the nutty flavor when fried.

WOW I ran my printer out of ink with all of those wonder recipes!

I was going to suggest the Coleslaw recipe I posted long ago because it's incredibly easy and everyone I've ever fed it to asked for the recipe!

Thanks everyone for the wonderful ideas!
