Here is one of the quickest and easiest summer salads to make and take just about anywhere. And because the recipe is so simple and you can take it just about anywhere it is known as The Perfect Summer Salad at my house. One of my favorite things about this recipe is that you can add different things you have on hand and make different versions. Also, this a a great salad to take anywhere because it can travel so easily. And did I mention that you can make it the night before? Yep, that's probably the best part of all!
The recipe starts with two boxes of Betty Crocker Classic Suddenly Salad. You will need two boxes because one box has never been enough and leftovers are great. You will follow the package directions. Once your salad is done the fun starts. You can add in so may different things to make your own perfect summer salad.
Here are some ideas:
Grilled Meat or Lunch Meat
When you start adding different ingredients you will realize that you might need some extra Italian dressing. We keep this on hand just for that reason! Stir and mix all of your ingredients together and chill in the refrigerator.
