Easy Candied Pecans

Easy Candied Pecans by Salad Foodie

A snack for the gods! Sprinkle atop your favorite greens, blue cheese topped or chicken salad. For holiday entertaining leave the pecans in halves rather than chopping, and serve in a festive bowl.

Cooler Corn

Cooler Corn by Glenn

Large gatherings of people who like corn on the cob requires a couple of lobster pots or a wash tub and a lot of boiling water and patience. Not anymore. Thanks to tailgating technology there is a simple way to make dozens of ears of corn for the hungry revelers.

The Best Chile Rellenos Ever

The Best Chile Rellenos Ever by Mihir Shah

I love chile rellenos and this is a spectacular recipe - I use a little less cheese than you'll probably get in a restaurant, but it "feels" better that way. Feel free to add more cheese (or use different kinds of cheese). Enjoy!

Cucumber Salad (vinegar style) by Denise Sherin

My mom's been making this since we were little, it so refreshing in the summer time. It's basic and simple and great at picnics and bbq's and with no mayo in it won't spoil in the summer heat.

Al's Famous Garlic Dressing

Al's Famous Garlic Dressing by Micheline

This is my version of Al's Steak House Creamy Garlic Salad Dressing and it is tangy, garlicky and scrumptious. A delight for the garlic lover's taste buds. Serve with a garden salad.

Homemade Grilled Flatbread

Homemade Grilled Flatbread by John Spottiswood

I couldn't find any authentic pita bread or other flat bread at my local grocery store, so I decided to try grilling my own. It turned out to be really fun and not too difficult. And the taste was amazing. The hardest part was rolling out the dough (I doubled the recipe). Fortunately, I was able to do that while watching a playoff…

Mediterranean Summer Salad

Mediterranean Summer Salad by Amos Miller

This Spanish-influenced salad is refreshing anytime you have it - from a dinner party to a picnic lunch. Bright notes of lime and cilantro. the wonderful pairing of sweet onion and navel orange, the sensuously smooth silkiness of avocado and tomato, all set off by the crisp crunch of toasted almond slices and the elegant earthiness…

Raw Vegetable Salad for a Crowd

Raw Vegetable Salad for a Crowd by A.L. Wiebe

Like many of my recipes, this one has been hanging around since the '70's, and it is always a huge hit. I have never tried to alter it in any way, as I've never felt it needed it; but if anyone has any suggestions, fire away! It takes a bit of planning, as it needs to marinate overnight, but it's well worth it. Because it makes such…

Roasted Corn & Tomato Salad with Basil Balsamic Dressing

Roasted Corn & Tomato Salad with Basil Balsamic Dressing by Amos Miller

Super simple Summer salad! Almost a relish, yet offering opportunity for countless variations, this is picnic & BBQ perfect. On these hot summer days, you may not want to fire up the broiler, but this salad is so easy to bring together that when the coals are ready on the grill, just lay the unhusked ears of sweet corn over the…

In planning our menu this year, we decided to go for the traditional American organic beef burgers with all the fixings, two kinds of coleslaw, James Beards' sour cream slaw, a tart Indian cabbage dish, an Indian style potato salad, mixed wild greens…

Vinaigrette Coleslaw I

Vinaigrette Coleslaw I by Salad Foodie

Light with a nice balance of sweet/sour, Vinaigrette Coleslaw has become one of my favorites from BGH.COM, and makes a welcome change from creamy coleslaw recipes. Consider it especially for outings, barbecues and picnics because it does not contain mayonnaise. Suit your taste or time selection of cabbage with all green, a combo of…
