Sausage and Peppers Salad combines that familiar great taste into a luscious salad. Grilled smoked beef sausage, crisp peppers, spinach and onion round out the meal. Drizzle with my mustard vinaigrette for a tangy topping!
Labor Day is just around the corner. For some it signifies the end of summer. No more lazy, hazy, crazy days! For others, it’s a sneak peek into cooler weather and all fall has to offer.
This week #SundaySupper is saluting Labor Day and all the workers that make this country great.

Labor Day Menu Ideas

Labor Day has been a national holiday since 1894 celebrating all the contributions and accomplishments of the workers who have built the United States. It’s also the last day of summer, so let’s get grilling, cooking, and baking to celebrate!

For me personally, Labor Day means back to work. We spend this week at our college welcoming new and returning students back to classes. For some it’s a big step. It can be there first time away from home. Maybe they never shared living quarters with strangers or experienced students from different cultures.
It’s our job to provide comfort and guidance for all types of diets and tastes.
Comfort from food it a big one. Especially on the prominently women’s campus.
All these reasons are why I’m breaking out the grill and grilling some smoked sausage for my sausage and peppers salad.
Sausage and Peppers is one of my most requested recipes. Coupled with fried potatoes, it’s pure comfort food.
Today I’m adding a twist to this idea. Smoked sausage slices, crisp peppers, red onions, baby spinach, and hemp seeds. Drizzled with mustard vinaigrette for a bit of tang.
