I’m always on the lookout for pasta salads that I can take to picnics. A few weeks ago, I went to an outdoor movie screening of A League of Their Own (maybe the best movie ever!) and I threw something like this together on a whim.

If you’ve been following along for awhile you know that I’m not a big fan of mayonnaise in coleslaw. For me, mayo gives coleslaw a cloying richness that’s a bit too much for the rich foods it’s usually served with, like buttermilk fried chicken or sloppy joes.

There’s nothing novel about pairing figs and gouda, but stuffing them both between two tortillas that crisp into a flakey buttery crust, takes the classic combo to all new heights.

I know this sounds a little strange, but I’d take a tostada over a taco any day of the week. I love tacos, but I REALLY love tostadas. I think I like the crunch part the best. It’s almost like nachos but in more of a personalized form.

At 241 years old, the US is still a relatively young country, but that doesn’t mean we have any shortage of national traditions. Eating red, white and blue foods to commemorate Independence Day is a fun food tradition that I always take on as a culinary challenge. Last year, I showed you how to make a red, white and blueberry potato salad.
