Mediterranean Pasta Salad #SundaySupper

Mediterranean Pasta Salad is the perfect dish for picnics, potlucks and road trips!

This week for Sunday Supper we've come together to share our favorite recipes that travel whether your taking a long road trip, going on a picnic, to a potluck or camping these are the perfect recipes for your next adventure! 
I love, love, love this Mediterranean Pasta Salad for our road trips, picnics and adventures since it's meatless yet chock-full of goodies like arugula, garbanzo beans, artichoke hearts, kalamata olives, capers, sun-dried tomatoes, mozzarella cheese tossed with a fresh herb vinaigrette. 
It's pure deliciousness in a bowl! 
If garbanzo beans aren't your flavor try subbing with cannellini beans aka white kidney beans.
I usually make this when we go camping as our first lunch or dinner since there's so much work to do setting up camp and getting organized it takes the stress out of fixing a meal.
It can be packed into Mason Jars for easy individualized servings on the go.
Mediterranean Pasta Salad is best made the day before to allow the flavors to meld and pasta to absorb the dressing making it easy to grab and go on your way out the door.
It's so, so, so good I know you'll love, love, love it too!

Healthier Caesar Salad Dressing

Healthier Caesar Salad Dressing

It's been super hot here the last few weeks, way warmer then usual for Seattle so we've been barbecuing and enjoy cold foods as much as possible in an attempt to keep the house cool. 
When the weather's hot Caesar Salad is a staple in our house.
Sometimes we enjoy it as a side but more often then not we toss in a little grilled chicken or steak and call it a meal.
The other night we stuffed it in pita bread for a quick and easy dinner.
The kids always love when I serve things in pita bread and it makes an easy lunch or dinner on the go.
I usually make Caesar Salad with this Healthier Caesar Salad Dressing to cut back on calories and increase the protein by using low fat greek yogurt over traditional egg yolks or mayonnaise for a healthier option.
This dressing is so easy to make you will no longer have a need to buy dressing from the store.

Fully Loaded Baked Potato Skins #SundaySupper

Fully Loaded Baked Potato Skins #SundaySupper
This post is sponsored by the Idaho Potato Commission in conjunction with a social media campaign through Sunday Supper LLC. All opinions are my own.

This weeks Sunday Supper theme is Potato Appetizers using Idaho® potatoes so I knew I had to share our favorite Fully Loaded Baked Potato Skins.
We love Fully Loaded Baked Potato Skins because they are hearty, easy to make and perfect finger food as a appetizer, for a crowd or a light dinner.
I like to lightly salt the potatoes before baking for maximum flavor and the filling options are endless.
On this occasion we stuck with a traditional Fully Loaded Baked Potato Skin because you can never go wrong with melty cheese, crispy bacon with a large dollop of sour cream, a sprinkle of chives in a crispy lightly salted potato skin and if this is wrong I don't want to be right! 
Another favorite filling idea is taco seasoned ground beef, cheese, sour cream, avocado and salsa.
Just for the record I've never met a potato skin I didn't like!
