These are not the traditional Cream of Wheat cookies with raisins. Instead, these are Greek cookies, which I understand were traditionally called Fenekia. They are similar to Russian Teacakes. Recipe from villagegarden.com, posted upon request, I haven't tried it yet.
I love to order salad with red onion when we eat out, but the red onions I buy at the store are never as sweet and mild. That prompted me to come up with this recipe where the onion marinates in the dressing to calm it down a bit. :lol:
This is my husband's favorite. The 3 layers are just about too high for a cake keeper, so I often cut the recipe in half and make a 2 layer cake instead. I know 3 divided by 2 doesn't equal 2, but it's close enough! I included two frosting options.
Perfect for company, especially Christmas morning! You can add any vegetables you like, but don't add the colorful ones until the last minute. I did that once with the green onion and wound up with green eggs! It's best made with evaporated milk, but you can use milk instead if needed.
I like to serve this salad for picnics and buffet parties with Italian dressing on the side. You can make it up a day or two ahead to save time on the big day. See my note below before you buy the deli meats and cheese.
This dressing is good anytime, not just for holidays! Easy to make and keeps well in the fridge. You can use a jar of pear baby food if pears aren't in season. Inspired by Zurie's apple salad (recipe #246951).
Yep, I know everybody and their uncle has a green bean casserole already posted! But I love the way my sister-in-law makes them and none of the others quite matched. So I posted for safe-keeping, after tweaking just a bit of course, you know me...
