Soon it will be time to harvest your garden and you may be looking to canning, but before you do that use some of those freshly gathered veggies to make a salad. Here is a great recipe for a summer salad from my “More Lifelong Favorites” collection from the “Senior Perspective” that is available for sale at the office.

Summer Salad

  • 14 or 16 ounce ring macaroni or small macaroni shells, cooked
  • 2 cups cucumbers, diced
  • 1 cup onion, diced
  • 2 cups carrots, diced
  • 2 cups celery, diced


  • 1 1/2 cups salad dressing
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1. Boil the macaroni first, then drain and rinse with cold water.

2. Dressing made separately - blend the sugar and salad dressing. Add vinegar, salt, pepper and nutmeg. Mix well.

3. In a large bowl, pour dressing over cooked macaroni and vegetables. Mix well and enjoy!
