After a crazy post-holiday day last January, I hatched a plan to make a different soup every Tuesday throughout the winter. I served some tried-and-true soups, but I also experimented with new recipes and found a couple of winners!
As hot weather approached, I wondered if I could rise to a new challenge and serve a different salad every week throughout the summer. This one will be a little harder to do successfully, mostly because Ron is not a huge fan of salad, especially when served as THE dinner. But I am going to try, with a mix of main dish type of salads and side salads. (Gotta keep hubby happy!)
I'll begin this series with one of our tried-and-true salads. I found this recipe several years ago in an e-mail from Gooseberry Patch. (Do you receive their e-letters?) I have made this at least once or twice every summer since...and it is a main dish salad that Ron likes! Of course, the fact that bacon is an ingredient doesn't hurt.
Here is the recipe for BLT Macaroni Salad, with my own tweaks. (I included the link to the original below my recipe.)

What about you? Do you make more salads in the summer?
