I developed the following recipe to assure that I would seldom have to carry home any…

Raw Vegetable Salad for a Crowd

Raw Vegetable Salad for a Crowd by A.L. Wiebe

Like many of my recipes, this one has been hanging around since the '70's, and it is always a huge hit. I have never tried to alter it in any way, as I've never felt it needed it; but if anyone has any suggestions, fire away! It takes a bit of planning, as it needs to marinate overnight, but it's well worth it. Because it makes such…

Vinaigrette Coleslaw I

Vinaigrette Coleslaw I by Salad Foodie

Light with a nice balance of sweet/sour, Vinaigrette Coleslaw has become one of my favorites from BGH.COM, and makes a welcome change from creamy coleslaw recipes. Consider it especially for outings, barbecues and picnics because it does not contain mayonnaise. Suit your taste or time selection of cabbage with all green, a combo of…

Sauerkraut Salad

Sauerkraut Salad by A.L. Wiebe

Honestly, when a friend told me he had found this recipe in an old cookbook, I was a bit skeptical. He was bound and determined to make it, in spite of my turned-up nose, so I put my best manners forward and tasted it. It was delicious, and helped greatly to wash down the crow I was forced to eat!

Make-over Spaghetti & Shrimp Salad

Make-over Spaghetti & Shrimp Salad by Salad Foodie

Originally mayo was the dressing for this salad recipe from a friend long ago, but I decided to give it a make-over. Adding a few new veggies and seasonings, and subbing an oil-based dressing, made it lighter and brighter. The recipe makes enough for a crowd or potluck, so cut down by one third or two thirds if needed.
