German Potato Salad Heirloom Recipe

German Potato Salad Heirloom Recipe by Foodiewife

My Mutti was born and raised in Bavaria, and I grew up with this wonderful potato salad. She owned a Bavarian Delicatessen in my hometown of Monterey, CA for years. Every morning, she'd make a fresh batch of her famous potato salad, and it would sell out by noon. Unlike a Northern German version of Hot Potato salad, with lots of…

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!

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.

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.

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.

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).

Hot German Potato Salad

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.

Bulgur and Bean Salad

Bulgur and Bean Salad by Salad Foodie

Bulgur is classified as a whole grain and makes a healthy and satisfying vegetarian meal or a side to grilled meats. We like the light nutty flavor it lends to recipes. I always keep #2 medium grind bulgur on hand whenever tabbouleh, pilaf or salads such as this beckon me. To enjoy the best array of flavors this salad has to offer,…

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:…

Vegetable Bowtie Pasta Salad

Vegetable Bowtie Pasta Salad by Vanessa

Growing up, my Mother fixed a pasta salad that was so awesome. Well, I did a makeover of that pasta salad with my own twist...by changing the pasta to bowtie pasta, using low-fat mayo and low-fat sour cream and adding more vegetables.

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.…
