Even though it's not May I'll jump in with one of my favorite salads.

Spinach salad with Yummy Strawberries

Dressing (make head of time)
1/4 c. sugar(fine works best)
2T sesame seeds
1T poppy seeds
1 1/2 tsp.minced onion
1/4tsp.worcestershire sauce
1/4 tsp. paprika
1/2 c. oil
1/4c. vinegar
Mix all together and refrigerate.
10-12 oz. fresh spinach
1 pint strawberries, sliced thin.
Mix together with dressing just before serving.
Salad looks so pretty with the dark green of the spinach against the pretty red of the strawberries. Tastes soo good.

This is a tasty marinade for chicken or pork.

Honey Dijon Marinade

1/3 c. orange juice & veggie oil
2T Dijon mustard
1 pkg (dry) ranch dressing mix
Mix all together and marinade meat.
These are really good and make the meat so tender.(I haven't tried it with beef yet) You can also use this on boneless chicken breasts but may want to halve the marinade as it makes lots. (could always refrigerate the extra for use later in the week,lol)

Tangy Tasty Kabobs

2lbs boneless beef or chicken, cut into 1 1/2 "cubes.
Assorted cut -up veggies( peppers,cherry tomatoes zucchini,onion etc.)

1c miracle whip
1pkg. (dry) Italian dressing mix
1/2 tsp garlic powder
2Tbs. vinegar & water

Mix together reserve and refrigerate 1/2 c. for dipping.
Arrange meat and veggies on skewers
(I like to seperate the veggies and the meat as I have better control over the cooking times of each.)
Brush kabobs well with marinade & marinate 1/2 hour in fridge. Place kabobs on grill over med-high coals, brush with any extra marinade. Grill 10 to 15 min or until desired doneness, turning once.
Use reserved 1/2 c. for dipping.
