Presenting: my own version of Ramen salad!
My mom makes a mean Ramen salad, which is well-loved at family get-togethers and potlucks. I wanted to make a version that used barbecue sauce and bacon and tart green apple!
This would be a great recipe for any summer picnic or potluck. Which reminds me, I am crazy excited for summer! Throughout the winter, I always forget how amazing the sun feels on my skin. And then, the sun returns, everything becomes happy-green again, and I get to take long walks with my husby! We have lots of plans for the summer like going to the farmer’s market, the zoo, sweet corn festival in town, concerts at a nearby winery, grilling every week, and lots of other sun-soaked activities!
