Menu Plan for Summer II: Week 5, Sunday

Cob Salad with Ham or Smoked Turkey
Baguette

Cooking time: 20 minutes for menu         Cooking schedule: see below for instructions

       If I lived in the US I would make this with smoked turkey breast, something that is not available here.  I list it as an option on the Shopping List - and also the Baguette or other crusty bread.

Cobb Salad with Ham or Smoked Turkey

Total time: 20 minutes
      Similar to the classic summer salad on American menus, this is chock-a-block with summer vegetables and finished with a creamy, yogurt-based dressing, similar to the American Ranch.
