San Antone Black Bean Salad

San Antone Black Bean Salad by Amos Miller

With friends and family living in the great state of Texas, my frequent visits have always meant new flavor profiles to experience, new ways to express myself in the kitchen and when I am invited out and asked to 'bring something to pass'. I developed the following recipe to assure that I would seldom have to carry home any…

Romaine Salad with Creamy Basil Dressing

Romaine Salad with Creamy Basil Dressing by John Spottiswood

The crisp inner leaves of romaine lettuce goes wonderfully with this light and creamy basil-infused dressing. We served the same dressing the following night with a more traditional mixed green salad with lettuce, avocado, tomato and cucumber, and that was delicious too. If you're looking for a tasty alternative to a caesar dressing,…

Mom's French Salad Dressing

Mom's French Salad Dressing by Bob Vincent

This is a salad dressing my Mom made for our family when I was a kid growing up in Nebraska. My brother loved the stuff. There is one very similar posted on CES but I thought I would post my Mom's as well. I don't know where she got the recipe; perhaps from an old 1950's cookbook or from a newspaper. It keeps well refrigerated.…

Creamy Cucumber Salad by Salad Foodie

This refreshing salad is a departure from traditional marinated cucumbers, and perfect for summer cookouts and picnics. Cucumbers may be peeled or not. If seeding them is preferred, add an extra cucumber to make up for the loss of volume.

Tomato and Avocado Salad

Tomato and Avocado Salad by John Spottiswood

This is a wonderful salad. Steeping the avocado in the lemon, olive oil, salt and pepper for an hour before serving is a real key to the flavor. We served this with small but flavorful tomatoes, so instead of the presentation recommended below, we just tossed everything together and served it. If I had big slices of heirloom…

Garbage Salad (not really) by Amos Miller

This salad will make the meal, or be the meal. Broccoli, oranges, almonds, raisins, mushrooms, onion & bacon - and a fabulous classic sweet & tangy creamy dressing!

Warm Brussles Sprouts Salad with Almonds and Parmesan

Warm Brussles Sprouts Salad with Almonds and Parmesan by Nancy Miyasaki

I adapted this from a Oprah recipe. She makes the salad with raw brussel sprouts. I couldn't quite trust that, so I blanched them lightly before slicing. This produced a delcious and slightly warm salad. I should have tried some raw and some cooked to see which method is best. Maybe one of you can do that and let us know?

Sweet basil tomato salad

Sweet basil tomato salad by Lynn Yamamoto Dalman

I adapted this recipe from a tomato salad my mom's friend, Michi, made us years ago. She marinates the tomatoes in the dressing. We use this as salad dressing. You need to use a pretty sturdy lettuce such as Romaine--it's a substantial dressing. It's got wonderful flavor either way you use it.
