This is a running joke with friends that the only reason they keep me around is for this potato salad. Since becoming a RZ junkie, I actually made it and measured stuff out. How great, the next time someone wants the recipe, I can send them here! Just in time for summer BBQ's.
I got this recipe from Cook's Country and I constantly get requests to make it. It's packed full of flavor. The white BBQ sauce makes this salad--just look at the ingredients! You'll want to be sure to mince where it says mince and don't leave anything out. All of the flavors together are outstanding. It's also very pretty.
I am always looking for recipes that my boyfriend, Bill, can take to work for his lunch. I like to make sure they include both some protein and carbs, since he does heavy physical labor and needs to be appropriately refueled. I came up with this recipe, which met those requirements, and it tastes great, too! It's simple, quick, and travels well.
This is a wonderful mediterranian pasta salad. It is very tasty and also very healthy, too, cause it uses no cream or mayonnaise. You can make it even healthier by using whole wheat pasta instead of regular. This is great served with some oven-warm bread or just eaten plain.
I recently started weight watchers and have been searching for flavourful yet healthy meals. This is a really easy side dish or take-to-work lunch. Feel free to use fresh herbs in place of the italian seasoning, but add them toward the end of cooking. This recipe serves 3 as a side dish or 2 as a lunch. The figures may be different between countries, but by British Weight Watchers, this whole recipe is a total of 9 1/2 points.
We had a potluck to attend where we had been asked to bring a side dish. I was craving couscous though I knew few (if any) of my friends would be willing to try it. Never mind, I moved forward! This is a slight adaptation of one I found in one of my favorite cookbooks "500 almost fat free pasta recipes." And truth be told, I brought very little home and got asked for the recipe!
For large gatherings, I think this salad would go over great! This is one of the best tasting macaroni salads I have ever had! I know there are a lot of ingredients, but don't skimp. The flavor sensation is absolutely incredible!! I saw this on Food Network's 'Calling All Cooks', and got the recipe from the website. This recipe serves about 25 people.
NOTE: The ORIGINAL recipe calls for 1-2 Tbsps. garlic salt, and that's the way I entered the recipe. If you are salt sensitive, I suggest you use less. You can always add more.
Living on the coast we are sometimes forced to evacuate during hurricane season. Put this salad in a covered bowl and throw it in the cooler. It's an entire meal in one bowl and it's easy to serve. Dish it up into a cup and you can eat it in the car, camper or motel room in our case! That's why we call it "Evacuation Tuna & Pasta Salad"!
