Southwestern Pierogy Salad
Contributed by: NAPSA
Pierogy Salads: A Cool Idea (NAPSA) - If you're
interested in cooking less and eating more lightly during the heat of summer, salads can help.
Simple to prepare-and refreshingly cool and crunchy-they're just right for the season.
As a change from everyday salads, try tossing convenient frozen Mrs. T's¨ Pierogies
into your mix. Substitute these potato-filled pasta pockets for the spuds in potato salad, or
combine them with sliced veggies and your favorite Italian-style dressing. Southwestern flavors
such as salsa, corn, avocado and black beans are another great match for pierogies.
Low-fat pierogies are a perfect fit for a lifestyle that includes sensible eating and regular exercise.
