Be prepared for the best Greek salad on the planet! --- plan ahead the dressing needs at least 2 or more hours to blend the flavors, I sometimes add in 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese to the dressing for a more cheesy dressing, all amounts may be adjusted to taste ---- to marinade the salad allow to sit at room temperature before serving, see bottom of instructions --- you will find this and many more of my recipes posted here http://kittencalskitchen.com/2009/04/13/kittens-famous-greek-salad/ ---also see my recipe #359292
This is a dish my family and friends ask me to bring to potluck/cook-outs! NEVER any left to bring home! (my sister brings a bowl to take what MIGHT be left) Taste great hot out of the oven or "room temperature"
This recipe was a side dish at a restraunt we ate at. I ate so much I couldn't finish my salmon. The spinach is not cooked so the flavor is very fresh. Since finding this recipe we have gone through 5 pounds of spinach!! (in 2 weeks)
I served this terrific salad to guests and it was a hit! Pour the hot dressing over the salad right before serving time. I found this recipe in an old Farm Journal cookbook. Cook time is for the time it takes to boil the eggs and fry the bacon.
This has to be the most requested recipe in my way-too-vast collection. It comes from Chiffonade Chef on the FC site, and she submitted it to Gourmet magazine some years ago. It was accepted and printed almost immediately. It's so easy, and so tasty, you will see why.
I got this from the Best of Bridge cookbook. It is a real hit at BBQ's as well as a side dish on a hot summer day. I make a big batch because people always want to take leftovers home! Tastes even better the next day, but the cucumber will be a bit wilted, but doesn't affect the taste. Enjoy!
Edited to include: You can also add some fresh dill weed to the dressing. It adds a nice flavor.
Edited June 2011 to include: You can also try using Splenda in place of sugar. It doesn't alter the taste too much. I have successfully used it in place of sugar. It depends on your tastebuds.
Made this tonight for my "Survivor" dinner group and it was great. Easy and fast to do with a food processor and the flavor was perfect. I was concerned about 4 teaspoons of celery seed, but it was just right. I'm definitely adding this to my favorites. This recipe is 3 WW Pts.
Sweet peaches, crunchy nuts, and tangy vinaigrette. After being on a strawberry spinach salad kick lately, I thought it would be fun to vary the ingredients a little and this is what resulted. Hope you like it as much as I did. :)
On a trip to New Orleans, we had lunch at a delightful little restaurant named the Ugly Dog Saloon and BarBQ. Those at our table loved their Cole Slaw and it's delicious dressing. The waitress graciously copied the recipe for us from the kitchen wall. Her version started with one gallon of mayonnaise, but I have scaled it down! Cooking time is for chilling, if desired.
