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.
