Loving Life after 50

Summer Salads Red Potatoes and Green Beans and some Target Money to help you out.

Summer and salads go hand in hand and Kent loves to experiment.
Saturday’s are normally relaxing pool days but meals are important,  grilled steaks, peppers and some kind of salad is a regular go to meal.
Men like their steak and potatoes so to add a twist to potato salad.

1 pound green beans
8 red potatoes, quartered
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon garlic salt ( we used real garlic cloves, much better)
1 teaspoon ground lemon – black pepper (ground pepper is fine)
1 teaspoon dried parsley
1 teaspoon butter ( melted)
walnuts 1/2 cup chopped

~ Preheat oven to 400 degrees  and spray your baking pan with a non stick cooking spray
~ In a medium bowl mix together all the spices
~ Place potatoes in a large bowl and drizzle half the spice mixture over them. Toss until all are coated
~ Bake potatoes on one half of the baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes
~ Place green beans in bowl and drizzle the remaining spice mix over and toss until coated
~ Add green beans to baking dish (other half of potato pan) and bake for an additional 20-25 minutes or until potatoes are brown and fork tender
~we threw the walnuts in to have roasted walnuts added to the salad


and a twist on regular Saturday summer nights, beef kabobs, a meal fit for a king or a princess.

arranged nicely on my plate and picture perfect.  Happy Saturday peeps, heading out to get ready for my pool party. Pics will follow ( or watch Instagram LOL)
and to help out if you want to go buy the ingredients.

  • I have a potluck to go to this weekend. I might make this! It's so new and different but not too crazy on wild flavors. Perfect summer salad!
