Garbage Salad (not really)

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! Vegetarians can substitute bac-o-bits, or not add a bacon substitute. Throwing together bits and pieces of a variety of items has long been the basis of some great…

German Potato Salad (Insalata Patate Tedesca)

German Potato Salad (Insalata Patate Tedesca) by Robyn Savoie

Normally I am not a German Potato Salad eater but I love this tangy, potato salad and it has become a favorite of mine. I like it best served warm, when the potatoes have just been tossed in the hot bacon-and-mustard dressing. Though it is also delicious at room temperature, on a buffet or picnic table. I found this recipe in:…

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.

Orange Chipotle Vinaigrette

Orange Chipotle Vinaigrette by Bob Vincent

This recipe is adapted from one by Julie Campoy in her book Julienne. I made some changes to it. I added garlic, used more honey and reduced 50% more orange juice. I also added Mexican oregano and cut back on the cumin a bit. This produces a thin vinaigrette. If you want it thicker whisk in a couple of tablespoons of mayonnaise.…

Cool and Creamy Ranch Cucumber Salad

Cool and Creamy Ranch Cucumber Salad by Denise Sherin

This is a simple as 1-2-3. Only a few ingredients and a quick 30 minute chill and you are good to go. Great way to use up extra cucumbers. And it's a nice side to BBQ. Cook time is actually chill time.

PA Dutch Dandelion Greens

PA Dutch Dandelion Greens by Jann from PA

This is a cooked (wilted salad) with a hot bacon dressing! Dandelion must be gathered fresh in early spring. Once the buds appear, they will be too bitter. So, if you can't get the dandelion at the proper time, you can substitute another green (endive, oak leaf lettuce, or even young spinach leaves).

This pasta salad has a nice texture balance of smooth to crunchy, plus the tart-sweet of red wine vinegar and lemon pepper in the dressing. It makes PLENTY and is always a hit at gatherings. Leftovers keep well refrigerated.

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.

Five Star Coleslaw

Five Star Coleslaw by Chef Doug

Call me unrefined, but to my mind, no coleslaw has ever beaten KFC's coleslaw. I've done much searching and experimenting, and some time ago, I finally zeroed in on this combination of ingredients. If it isn't exactly like KFC, you won't get any closer. Simple and delicious.

Got Carrot Salad? Got 20 Minutes?

Got Carrot Salad? Got 20 Minutes? by kathy gori

I love stuff that's fast and easy. These are the recipes that are lifesavers especially when "stuff" happens, for lack of a better word. Dishes that are versatile, and inexpensive to prepare and can be prepared ahead of time are even better. I was looking for that sort of thing this week, after the whole Film Festival craziness and…
