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).

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:…

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.

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.

Hot German Potato Salad by Denise Sherin

Another Amish treat. I'm not a big fan of german potato salad but my Mom and her whole family from upstate Pennsylvania love it. The love hot bacon dressing on dandelion greens too. It's what they grew up on. If you have never had it, it's worth trying.

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.…

Fresh Garden Salad with Balsamic Marinade

Fresh Garden Salad with Balsamic Marinade by Salad Foodie

A summertime side with plenty of garden vegetables in a pleasant balsamic marinade. Add grilled meat or fish and dessert and dinner is a cinch. Allow 30-60 minutes marinating time before serving (though it can be made ahead and refrigerated up to 24 hours if preferred.)
