Simple But Delicious Recipes... 7 Layer Salad, Chicken Caesar Pizza and Fruit Salad!

Sometimes I just want something light, something that won't take all day. When you don't want to toil over the stove or oven all day, these are the perfect recipes. You can even make the salads a day ahead! The pizza with a pre-made crust and bottled dressing... What can be simpler? But the flavors are FAR from simple!

7 Layer Salad

Layer in a large bowl:
  1. 1 small head Lettuce
  2. 1 Cucumber, chopped
  3. Green Onion (optional)
  4. 1 can Very Young Garden Peas, drained
  5. Mayonnaise, enough to cover the peas
  6. Parmesan Cheese
  7. Bacon Bits
Note: It's even better after it sits in the frig overnight. You can also sub any vegetable you want... red onion, tomatoes (cored and seeded) etc.

Chicken Caesar Pizza
  • 1 prepared pizza crust or canned refrigerated pizza dough
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded chicken breast, tossed with Caesar Seasoning
  • Cardini's Caesar Dressing
  • Mozzarella Cheese
  • Parmesan Cheese
Spread dough out on a cookie sheet. Spoon dressing over dough. Top with chicken and cheese. Bake at 400 for about 12-15 minute. (Or follow directions on canned dough)

Simple Fresh Fruit Salad
  • Cantaloupe
  • Strawberries
  • Grapes, Red and Green
  • Pineapple
Simply cut the fruit into bites size chunks and toss. I used canned pineapple and use part of the juice as a sauce for the salad. If you use apple or a fruit that might brown, quickly toss in the pineapple juice after slicing. Garnish with mint, or for a different twist... Lemon balm!
