This is the best cucumber salad I have ever had. This is my grandmothers recipe, (she was from Nagyszentmiklos) and this is a perfect companion dish for chicken paprikas, although I could make a meal out of it. This will quickly become your favorite way to eat cucumbers!
My family would crowd into the kitchen to get their first forkfull of Mom's potato salad. It's that good! This potato salad is not at all sweet - something which was important for our family. Let it sit in the fridge as long as you can before serving... it's even better the next day!
This Salata de Cartofi cu Brinza is a delightful alternative to traditional potato salad. The recipe calls for red skinned potatoes, but it's grand with others too. Originally from Please to the Table, a Russian Cookbook.
This is my favorite company salad, especially in nice weather. Good with dinner or brunch/lunch. It looks and tastes fantastic and my guests always ask for the recipe. I adapted it from Martha Stewart but it's amazingly easy. (Also, despite the richness of the bacon and avocado, I figured it as only 4 weight watchers points per serving for 6 servings, 6 pts for 4!) I love this salad and I hope you enjoy it, too.
I adapted this from a recipe I found online. My family loves zippy, garlicky Caesar dressing and this fits the bill. I use fresh raw egg and have never had a problem. It's best to make the dressing ahead of time and let it meld if you have the time. Excellent with grilled chicken pieces added too. Enjoy!
There was a request for the Outback's Blue Cheese Chopped Salad on the forum today... it's been a couple of years since I had the salad myself, but I recall really enjoying it! The request set my tastebuds a'craving, so I put together this salad. We took it to a potluck today - I had two servings of it for lunch, and the husband and potluck attendees pronounced it great! :)
Salad of fennel and oranges is typically Italian and dates back to the time of the Roman legionnaires. For my taste, the addition of the walnuts makes the dish, with their slightly bitter skins contrasting nicely with the sweetness of the orange and slightly licorice flavor of the fennel. I recommend the use of blood oranges if you can (adding to the attractiveness as well as the flavor), but regular oranges will work well, too. Cooking time is marination/cooling time in the refrigerator.
Before commercial mayonnaise was available, my Grandmother used this sauce to make her cherished Potato Salad. It is a very-low fat alternative to mayonnaise and tastes better than light mayo, too! Great for tuna, macaroni, or chicken salad, but you'll probably want to add a little mayo, also.
This recipe is based on my mom's wonderful potato salad. I made it because I was missing potato salad and I figured that substituting cauliflower would work pretty well... and it does! Without the potato it's perfect for folks who are diabetic or working on lower carb menus, but even those who aren't watching carbs enjoy it. Very tasty!
