Romaine Rice Tuna Salad
So easy and good. I love it this way. I use two bags of Success Jasmine rice(cooks in 8 min. to perfection). Most of the time I use the chopped Romaine, but sometimes spinach. I have also used a big can of chicken breast with the pieces broken up. Add shredded carrot, black olives, and a small tomato chopped. It is best served fresh, but I have found it delicious the next day...just stir it up and serve cold. You could add some crisp-steamed broccoli too. And, if you use chicken, use EVOO, white wine vinegar, and a little yellow mustard all whisked together as the dressing.

Cucumber Salad II
You could slice the cuke a little thicker, and put the slices in sour cream french onion dip, or add extra onion and put it all in just sour cream. Quick, easy side salad.

Easy Baked Ham
This is really good. A suggestion--If you can get Vernor's Ginger Ale, use that. Oh my! what a flavor. A glaze of the ingredients that another reviewer wrote would be perfect.
