This is a comfort dish *PLUS* I had this for lunch today, and this salad included everything I *love* in the world. I had tomatoes, (big ones) from the garden along with fall lettuce, bell pepper and onion. I had already made the Beef Pasta over the weekend, so I just heated that up in the microwave. Added all the wonderful ingredients and wanted to eat more then my fair share. I added red pepper flakes to the top and and chowed down. Thanks Lori, absolutely amazing.

This was a different idea for a salad. It was very fresh tasting, even being made with Hamburger Helper. I would have never thought to combine that with a salad in one dish. This was very tasty. The only thing I didn't do was halve my cherry tomatoes. Thank you for the different and very tasty recipe for dinner! :)

This was really good! I've always liked hamburger helper, and this was a nice variation. I added crunched up nacho chips and sliced pickled jalapenos--sort of a taco/pasta salad. The family loved it. Thanks for posting.
