Submitted by on June 14, 2011 – 12:38 pm One Comment


So salad probably doesn’t immediately come to mind when thinking of something delicious to prepare your dad on Father’s Day, but as far as salads go this one is pretty manly! A wedge of crisp iceberg lettuce, oven roasted tomatoes, pepper bacon (which of course it makes everything better) and creamy dressing made with our Pendleton Barbeque Sauce will make any dad a happy (and full!) one this Sunday!
