Make your own Chinese Five spice powder seasoning mix using either ground or whole spices. I needed 5 spice powder and didn't have it at home. This recipe is excellent. It was used to coat walnuts for an Asian salad. I loved the seasoned walnuts so much, I ate them straight and am now going to make them for 5 holiday parties we are attending.
One of my grand kid's wanted some French Dressing to drizzle over some cottage cheese (not one of my favorites thing to do, but very popular in her home!) so I whipped up this recipe in about 2 minutes. This simple french salad dressing recipe is superb and very easy to make. French Dressing is made of ketchup, apple cider vinegar, sugar, onion, and oil. Her family loved it ...I made more for her sister to take home..
I was bored today so I made 4 different recipes for deviled eggs at the same time and had neighbors & friends do a taste test. These easy eggs can be a successful side dish for any holiday menu and I'm asked to bring them to every family gathering. A Classic picnic food that goes fast.
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!).
This is a good, basic recipe and best when made a day ahead to allow the flavors to blend. Just a good old fashioned, down home potato salad recipe that brings back memories of picnics in the park and family gatherings. Wonderful as it is or make it your own by adding additional ingredients of your choice.
This ham salad sandwich is a snap to mix up in the food processor, or mince the ham by hand and mix the ingredients together for delicious sandwiches or filled rolls. and the, Ham Salad Wraps are a delicious make ahead sandwich recipe perfect for lunchboxes. You could use canned salmon, chicken, or tuna in place of the deviled ham. I added shredded carrots when I took the picture.
Dill pickles add pizzazz to this old-fashioned chilled salad. The creamy, well-dressed side dish makes a flavorful and attractive addition to a Fourth of July picnic or church supper. My friends request this potato salad for any function we attend.
Taste the earthy flavors of the Mediterranean in every bite of this colorful summer salad. Tangy feta cheese, fresh mushrooms, tomatoes, onions, bell peppers and olives are tossed with spicy pepperoni and macaroni in an herb-infused vinaigrette. This is a great make-ahead pasta salad!
Every cook needs an easy, throw-together salad that can be made on a moment’s notice. This nutritious carrot salad is as chic as it is classic. It’s found in nearly every French cook’s repertoire, as well as eateries across the globe. Crunchy, fresh carrots blend with bright, zippy lemon mustard dressing in what is perhaps one of the easiest preparations in authentic French cuisine.
This is a swedish recipe that my grand mother did all the time and it is delicious, also is possible made it with Splenda. Preparing a cucumber salad for your first course is classically delicious and so simple.
Bottled salad dressing can be convenient but its expensive and often full of salt, sugar, and chemical additives. Making your own is simple and allows you to customize the seasonings to suit whatever meal you are preparing. The amounts given make about 1/4 cup and can be expanded infinitely for larger salads. It can be made several days ahead and kept in the fridge. Sorry about the slightly odd way of putting the ingredients for the creamy dressing variations. The recipe editor is picky about what it will accept.
I got this recipe many years ago from one of my favorite Canadian author/teacher, Ann Lindsay. This recipe never gets boring as there are many variations to choose from. It is fun to play around, coming up with something new each time!
