Tasty Grilled Salmon (not fishy!)

1. Mix a pack of Good Seasons Italian Salad Dressing in a cruet with vinegar, water, and olive oil.
2. Cover the bottom of flat container large enough to hold the number of Salmon filets you will be cooking with the dressing.
3. Grind some Sea Salt and Fresh Ground Pepper on both sides of each Salmon filet.
4. Place the Salmon filets in the flat container.
5. Pour Good Season Italian dressing over the top of the Salmon filets and let them marinade for a few hours.
6. Grill about 10 minutes on each side (until done) with the grill on low.

Goes great with Betty Crocker "Suddenly Pasta Salad Classic".
Prepare & chill the Pasta Salad at the same time you marinade the Salmon so it will have time to chill.

TIP: Wal-Mart sells four Wild Salmon Filets in their frozen food section for $4 to $5 usually. They are packaged in a orange bag looking package. Be sure to move them from your icebox to the refridge side the day before cooking preparing and cooking them.


Black Bean Soup In A Crock Pot (serves four)

2 teaspoons Wesson Vegetable Oil or Olive Oil (pre heat then add to crock pot set to low)
1/2 cup chopped carrots
1/2 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup chopped onion
(Put ingredients in crock pot set to low for about an 15 minutes)
Then add:
2 10-oz cans Rotel chunky diced tomatoes and green chilies
3 15-oz cans Ranch Style or Progresso black beans (undrained)
1/2 cup of 1/4" cubed ham (or spicy sausage)
*you can get the cubed ham from Walmart's Grocery for about $2.50 - you just have to look for it. usually the center meat isles.

We cook it in the crock pot for 6 hours on low --or -- 3 hours on high.
Stir in 1/4 cup minced cilantro and allow to simmer 15 min before serving.
We top ours with a dollop of sour cream and some diced raw onion or scallions.
