Zesty Dressing Print E-mail

This Zesty Dressing turns a simple green salad into something special. Get pre-washed greens and you can throw a tasty salad together in minutes. The recipe was given to us by our friend Montrell at Traugher Middle School.

Liv and Belle were invited to do a cooking demo and book signing at Traughber and the students there put together the "Taste of Traughber Cookbook" as a gift. We chose 5 recipes that made up a complete meal. But there are lots and lots more! Our thanks to Montrell, all the other students who participated and to Ms. Loretta Burke their teacher who organized the event. Great job!
