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…

Southwestern Shell Pasta Salad

Southwestern Shell Pasta Salad by Salad Foodie

Chop, chop, chop and get your frustrations out making this pasta salad with south-of-the-border appeal. Choose your heat level by amount of peppers, hot sauce and chilies you add. This yields a generous bowl and serves 12-14. Make this ahead of time and chill ~ if you can wait and can keep everyone out too!

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…

Creamy Avocado & Potato Salad

Creamy Avocado & Potato Salad by John Goins

Another way to have your salad is a no-mayo potato salad. You just need a couple of ingredients and voila! A perfect afternoon snack or a starter for your dinner. If you feel like adding some protein, you can add nuts such as pine nuts, cashews, and even walnuts. A fried silken tofu will make this dish better too. But if you are a…

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).

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.

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:…

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.…

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.

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.
