Baby BLT
I needed to transport these to a party. To keep them from rolling around while driving, I got a 1" thick piece of styrofoam at the craft store. I wrapped it like a gift with a square of pretty fabric and topped it with some leafy lettuce, held in place with toothpicks. I then arranged the tomatoes on top and placed a frilly toothpick in each tomato, anchoring it in the styrofoam. I covered it loosely with plastic wrap, and popped it in the cooler with a couple of blue ice packs. It traveled perfectly, and I had a lightweight, pretty "tray" and the guests could use the toothpick to pick up the tomato, if desired.

Mexican Fiesta Pasta Salad
This was a huge hit, even with my daughter, who doesn't like pasta salads. I put in a good handful of fresh cilantro, I think it adds a fresher, brighter taste.
