    A nice quick summer lunch, or can be served as an elegant appetizer salad. If you can find tuna in olive oil, it's well worth it in this recipe, but when draining the tuna, save the olive oil for the dressing. Cook time is actually chill time.

    Recipe #82608

    This is a very flavorful, fairly spicy, Asian-type salad. If you don't like it too hot, substitute sweet chili sauce for the hot chili sauce or mix half and half. The flavors need a few hours to blend, so it's a good idea to let it sit in the fridge for at least 2 hours and up to 24 hours. Salad can be nicely garnished with additional cilantro and lime slices. You can also use diced cooked chicken in place of the steamed chicken breasts if desired.

    This is a spicy Thai salad made with ground beef. The salad itself isn't something piled up on lettuce, but rather scooped up with lettuce leaves. Or, if you prefer, you could take spoonfuls of the meat with garnishes and wrap them in a softer lettuce, such as Boston, or red leaf. As always, adjust the spiciness to your own taste.

    Recipe #34447

    I love a good cesear salald. Especially if its got another of my favorite ingredients in it, shrimp! I stumbled across this recipe and tweaked it to my own likings. If you don't want to use shrimp, you can use cubed chicken breast or sliced roast beef instead.

    A type of cole slaw with chicken and cellophane noodles, pronounced "nyome". This makes an excellent side dish or a main dish if served with rice.

    Recipe #78491

    This full flavored salad makes a great summer entree. Cooking time inclued one hour/60 minutes of chilling.

    Recipe #32346

    This is a delicious summer salad. I use ready-made Sweet Chilli Sauce, and to give the salad interest, I use a variety of different lettuce leaves, some chopped spring onions (shallots), parsley, watercress, cherry tomatoes halved, and sometimes some chervil.

    Recipe #22094

    This recipe makes about 8 large servings, but you can cut it down easily. The dressing will keep in the refrigerator for a month or two quite nicely.

    An easy and fresh tasting salad. Perfect for a summer meal. This is also nice with the addition of chopped avocado or cucumber.

    Recipe #48692

    This recipe was in the 'food' section of our local paper a couple of weeks ago. We made it while on a camping trip, a very refreshing and different salad! It has a definite Greek taste and is very low-cal! Time does not include marinating (if you chose to do so).

    Food & Wine 2008 Magazine, June 2008 edition. A fast & healthy classic combination. Sue Zemmanick, one of the best new chefs for 2008, mixes fresh crab, avocado and tomato with a vibrant, spicy dressing spiked with jalapeno peppers.

    This is great for a light lunch. Double the recipe it is also good as a potluck dish. Always had rave reviews on this one

    Recipe #20213

    Tomoko and I made this for our dinner tonight. We adapted it from another recipe I have just posted. Prep time doesn't include cooking and cooling the chicken (I poached mine).

    Recipe #74711

    If you are a mint and couscous lover like I am, you just might like this delicious salad.

    Recipe #54218

    I actually despise canned tuna. However, it is so economical that I am constantly searching for recipes that make it tolerable to me. I went back for 3 helpings of this one! It came from Betty Crocker's New Cookbook. Cook time is actually the recommended chill time. Don't forget to plan on time to cook the pasta.

    Recipe #57837

    A really good chicken salad to serve for picnics or potlucks.

    The most important thing in this salad is to slice the cucumbers VERY think like they do in Japanese restaurants. It makes all the difference.

    Recipe #172607

    A family favorite! Not your typical potato salad, that's for sure!
