The menu for Erin Payne’s high school graduation dinner was a collection of her favorite dishes. Uncle Barry fixed the Shrimp Scampi, I made the Browned Butter Chocolate Chip Swirl Cookies—Pizookies (casserole cookies), and her mom, Marla Payne, made this salad for a family gathering.
Southern Living magazine (my sister’s go-to recipe source) definitely created another winner.
