My family would crowd into the kitchen to get their first forkfull of Mom's potato salad. It's that good! This potato salad is not at all sweet - something which was important for our family. Let it sit in the fridge as long as you can before serving... it's even better the next day!
This is an adopted recipe for me, Jellyqueen, but I am leaving the original introduction for those who already have saved/reviewed this recipe. Hope everyone enjoys this!!! This was my first introduction to fresh salad dressing. I worked for a woman in Manhattan back in the 1980s who made this dressing in a jam jar. She would leave it on the kitchen counter -- we would finish it in about 3 days. It is just delicious and very easy to make. I serve it tossed with field greens or butter lettuce and fetta cheese, walnuts and kalamata olives.
Don’t throw those delicious fresh papaya seeds out! Make this wonderful dressing with them. :) I have also dried papaya seeds and used them chopped or crushed in recipes. They’re very good for the digestion and have a slight peppery flavor.
This is the astoundingly good dressing that we use on our reuben sandwiches and in shrimp cocktail. Others have told me that they make it just to use as a dip, and - coming from my description in our Reuben Sandwiches Our Way (recipe # 107927): "you can call it Thousand Island or French, whathaveyou" - keep it on their table and call it What-Have-You Sauce. Thank you for the tribute! :)
This is a nice assortment of veggies and cheese to take to a picnic or potluck, and is quick and easy to put together! You can make the vinaigrette ahead of time, if you like. From Cooking Light. Prep time includes chilling.
I love this salad with roasted or grilled meats, especially roasted or grilled chicken. I place a mound of the salad on a plate and put the chicken right on top. It's an easy, simple and unusual starch for any meal. Delicious in the summer, especially, when all the ingredients are at their peak.
Once upon a time, in the recipe request section of an online bulletin board, someone asked for a kiwi mandarin salad dressing. I looked all over for one online, but no luck. So I went to the store and got myself a bunch o' kiwis and such, and came up with one of my own. I had it with dinner that night, and it was darn tasty! The folks on the other board have had it, too, and say they really like it.
During the holidays when I'm visiting with my family, one of the things my mom and sisters and I do is to swap recipes. Mom has a notebook stuffed full of recipes she's saved since she was first married, and this is her favorite dressing from that collection, one she makes on a regular basis. Delicious!
This dressing is used in the blue cheese dressing, which follows. It can also be served alone. The Nut Tree Restaurant was an old landmark near Sacramento California. It has been closed for serveral years now.
I adapted this from a recipe I found online. My family loves zippy, garlicky Caesar dressing and this fits the bill. I use fresh raw egg and have never had a problem. It's best to make the dressing ahead of time and let it meld if you have the time. Excellent with grilled chicken pieces added too. Enjoy!
Before commercial mayonnaise was available, my Grandmother used this sauce to make her cherished Potato Salad. It is a very-low fat alternative to mayonnaise and tastes better than light mayo, too! Great for tuna, macaroni, or chicken salad, but you'll probably want to add a little mayo, also.
I know this sounds like a strange combination, but it's actually quite good! It's a nice, light salad, with the slightly vinegary taste of the rinsed sauerkraut contrasting nicely against the cool sweetness of the pudding. It tastes similar to carrot and raisin salad. Give it a try!
