A delicious healthy salad that combines a regular cold salad with sizzling hot toppings! The variety of textures and flavors make this a top request from every single one of my friends! The recipe lends itself to throw cooking, as the number of guests has never been consistent for me. When in doubt- if all the toppings don't fit on top, serve the extras on the side - they're all stand-alones.
This is my favorite summer salad. It's light but filling and has delicious flavor. I like it with garbanzo beans in place of the white beans in place of the cannellini beans. The recipe is from Cooking Light.
I am not a fan of mayonnaise-based salads, although this recipe only uses three tablespoons of mayo and therefore passes the Cookgirl seal of approval. Mom cut this recipe out of a womens' magazine over twenty years ago for me. I've modified the salad over the years to make it healthier and tastier.
I really enjoyed this! It was inspired by a recipe I saw on Food 911. Careful with the cayenne. (I personally like it a little spicy, but use your own judgment) I also usually only make half of this recipe. (I'm the only one in the house who will actually EAT tofu!)
This recipe is from the local newspaper. It says that it is a recipe adapted from one from the Ca. Avocado Commission. Its a wonderful recipe, that is heart healthy, and lighter because the wonderful tangy dressing substitutes for mayo in most salads such as this. Lots of wonderful flavors, textures, and colors!
This is a Delia Smith recipe and one of my favorite starters or lunch dish. It is supposed to serve four but in our house it serves two! The only thing I have changed over the years is that I leave out the salt from the flour, to season the flour I use some ground pepper and I have added some oregano to it. If you don't like coriander, use parsley instead and serve this with some toasted pita or bread of your own choice.
Pat yourselves on the back, Recipe*zaarites! I took all your best egg salad ideas and came up with this recipe which is certain to win me a big Blue Ribbon at the County Fair! Full flavor and slightly sweet with no sugar added and nice eye appeal. (No doubt, there is sugar in the relish). A great brunch idea.
