“Ready, Set, Cook! Special Edition Contest Entry: I started making my own salad dressings back in 2009 after a trip to Canada. Suffice it to say that I have been big into salads ever since. So, when I saw the Simply Potatoes contest it was a natural fit to compliment the challenge with my 1st love! I like this recipe because it could be done with an array of dressings: ranch, blue cheese, sky's limit. Even changing the spinach, for say a endive, would create a whole other dish with endless possibilities that will readily fit varying families with varying tastes.”
12 salad rolls
