This classic version of Waldorf is my family's favorite; not terribly sweet with a strong flavor of apples. Add more sugar if you wish; also, you can use any type of apples but I prefer Granny Smith both for their taste and their crunch.
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. :)
I was served this salad on my honeymoon. The ingredients are all minced very fine, then they are tossed with the dressing at the last minute. I love it. It's perfect as a light lunch or dinner all by itself on a very hot summer day.
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.
When I got engaged, at my bridal shower we served this salad and everyone loved it. I then started making it for my friend's bridal showers. It is a great hit and has a wonderful taste. Definately different from the usual salads. I usually cut up all the vegetables the night before so on the day of the party all I have to do is mix it up. Perfect for a crowd.
Healthy edamame in a tangy vinaigrette. Blanching the celery and onion mellows their flavors so they don't overpower the other ingredients. Originally from a Cooking Light magazine. A delicious side salad that's so good for you!
This recipe is kind of a copy cat of a dressing from a local restaurant that, in the last few years has been available by the bottle in local supermarkets. I have been to MANY a Japanese restaurant and I have had yet to find a dressing I enjoy as much as this one....most are too sweet and cloying for my taste. I think this recipe is pretty close to the original (which if you haven't tasted it, it is hard to appreciate how close it really is). I hope you enjoy it!
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.
There are about as many coleslaw recipes as there are people. I myself like a variety coleslaws. I especially like the sweetness of this recipe from Paula Deen of the Food Network. The texture is also interesting as most of the ingredients are chopped in the food processor and half the cabbage is shredded. I think you can use a little more cabbage than the recipe calls for. I also like to mix in red cabbage for lots of color. (Cooking time listed is time standing in refrigerator).
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
