I was contacted recently by the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association. They have asked several bloggers to be part of “It’s What’s for Dinner Wednesday” challenge. Each week in September NCBA will share a recipe on their facebook page and the bloggers will create the recipe at home (or our version of it) and share it on our blogs. You can also participate and enter to win a cool prize pack from the NCBA by visiting the facebook page.
The recipe this week is Cajun Southwestern Salad. The original recipe can be found here. I will say that I altered the recipe quite a bit. I had a couple reasons for doing this. First, I have a bunch of grape tomatoes that my sister-in-law gave me and I needed to use them. Second, the original recipe called for figs and blood oranges. I wasn’t at all sure I would be able to find those ingredients. Besides, the closest I’ve ever gotten to a fig is in a Newton. So, I’ve altered the recipe for the average, non-adventurous family.
