These are like taking a little bite of summer. The flavors blend so well and taste great. They never stand a chance at picnics or potlucks. They always are gone before the meal begins. Quantities and ingredients may be adapted to suit your personal tastes.
Mrs. Peterson, a lady from church, made the best egg salad sandwiches and she'd never really tell you what she put in them. This was my first attempt to duplicate her recipe. Her family thought she added butter when mixing.
I take this dip to almost every gathering I go to.....and have never had to haul any of it home! It's never had a real name, but when people ask what's in it?/how do you make it?, the response is always the same: "It's so easy. Five things and stir!".
You can actually add additional items like diced jalapenos, sliced black olives, etc to make it your own.....but the basic recipe is always a hit! I use the extra hot Rotel to kick it up, but for those who prefer milder flavor, you can use the regular or even 'mild' Rotel. I DO highly recommend Rotel (rather than any other brand of diced tomatoes w/chilis)...there's just something about the flavor that's very unique. Enjoy!
I got this recipe from a coworker at the salon I work at. I didn't think it would be so wonderful and addictive! It's very creamy and sweet, and a great mix of flavors. It will be the best thing you ever use grapes for (except maybe wine!).
I got this recipe from a friend at my church. She brings this salad to alot of church gatherings and everyone loves it, including me! So yummy and easy! This is to be made the night before and refrigerate.
Great beef and bean dish for the crock-pot. Goes over well at potluck parties. The chipotle peppers in adobo sauce add a nice background flavor. I found this recipe in one of the many crock-pot cookbooks my husband has. A tip for using chipotle peppers in adobo sauce: open the can, de-seed the peppers and put them, and the sauce, in a food processor. Process and store in the refrigerator for easy use in any dish you'd like.
I get compliments on this fruit salad wherever I take it. It is super easy to make and a great dish to bring to a potluck or family party. Kids love it too. Everyone asks "what's in the sauce"? The secret ingredient is the vanilla pudding mix.
I saw a couple of versions of this delicious salad on here but I had another in my recipes I figured I would add for diversity. I know I have had this salad before but I am not sure which version. This is the one I plan to make though as it seems purely sinful! I bet it would be good with some bananas or maybe some walnuts too!
This is my favorite recipe to bring to appetizer parties. It is so yummy when spread on some crusty french bread. I guarantee all of your guests will love it and you'll come home with a plate that was scraped clean!
