Favorite Coleslaw Dressing

Favorite Coleslaw Dressing by Salad Foodie

A basic mayonnaise-based dressing that we make ahead and have on hand when crunchy coleslaw is on the menu for lunch or dinner. This dressing keeps well for several weeks refrigerated in a mason jar, a vintage bottle from the thrift store, or recycled dressing container (see photos). Yield is a little over 2 cups and will dress a…

Think outside the box for your next slaw with this creamy deep red cabbage version. The dried cranberries are camouflaged by the cabbage color and provide a pleasant sweet taste surprise, while walnuts add extra crunch.

Ham, Peas & Pasta Salad

Ham, Peas & Pasta Salad by Salad Foodie

A nice choice for a summer cookout or picnic, this pasta salad can be made up to a day ahead for convenience. My pasta choice for this is ditalini, a small pasta often used in soups (this can be hard to locate but Barilla sells a one pound box.) Or substitute your own small pasta FAV such as elbows or shells.

Mom's Pickled Beet and Egg Salad

Mom's Pickled Beet and Egg Salad by Salad Foodie

I've fond memories of my mother's salads but have few written recipes of hers. Relying on memory alone for ingredients and flavors, I've come fairly close to her pickled beet salad. Three ingredients - this recipe is way easy! Of course I might add and/or embellish with all kinds of ingredients and garnishes we use today, but for the…

Aunt Birdie’s Layered Chicken Salad

Aunt Birdie’s Layered Chicken Salad by Salad Foodie

A make-ahead salad for a crowd, with crispy crunch appeal. There are many variations but this is the way Aunt Birdie prepared it, and it never fails to please at pot lucks and reunions. This is glamorous when layered in a round glass serving bowl, but for a crowd I usually assemble it flat in a glass 9x13" or 10x10" baking dish. It’s…
