Yum yum yum! So fresh simple & delicious. I have done similar salads but haven’t thought to add jalapenos, fabulous twist!


Loved Renee’s cooking style, down home and brings pleasant memories to the surface. I swear I could almost smell those meatballs frying. And, thank you Mary Ann for including Renee’s Tomato Salad recipe. That will surely be a go to summertime treat. I will be watching for the BLT truck as I am certain some enterprising soul will grab on to that excellent idea. Who doesn’t like a perfect BLT, right? Love your show Mary Ann and wish you continued success.
