With the weather getting way too hot in Texas, the search is on to find food that goes great with BBQ and light enough not to weigh you down in the heat. I had this recipe on my phone for quite some time and I'm not sure where it came from, but boy was it a hit!

We LOVED this salad! I made the dressing earlier in the day to allow the flavors to blend and ensure that the sugar was completely melted. Great combo of textures and flavors...I will def be making this again YUM! Thanks for sharing.:) Read More
