This beautiful, delicious salad can be made the day before, is a little different, and serves 25+ people. Don't let the long list of ingredients scare you. This is VERY easy. But, do NOT leave out the cornbread. It's my favorite dish to take to potluck or covered dish suppers - and there is never any left! For vegetarians, omit the real bacon bits. Vary the ingredients to suit your taste and ingredients on-hand.
This recipe came from an old Pine to Prairie Cookbook that the recipes were donated to. The telephone Pioneers of America made the book. My mother gave me three of these cookbooks and our family has used a lot of the recipes. This book has recipes from people who live all over the state of Minnesota. This is Yummy and great for a crowd, picnic, or holiday get togethers!
A little fresh basil in the dressing brings this make-ahead salad up-to-date. Substitute torn romaine lettuce for the spinach, if you like. For a dramatic presentation, serve this salad in a clear glass bowl. The salad must refrigerate for 5 hours, which is included in preparation time. This recipe is by Kraft.
I saw Bobby Flay make this salad on one of his grilling specials on the Food Network. I made it last night, and wow was it ever delicious. It has become a new family favorite and is great for those who like a little spiciness with a nice crisp, cool salad. It is really easy to make and VERY easy to eat.
I wish I had this when I made my pulled pork sandwiches yesterday! This recipe has zip! From Down Home with the Neely's on the Foodnetwork. The 2 hour cook time is actually time the coleslaw needs to sit in the fridge.
I got this recipe from my mother-in-law, who got it from a colleague. She knows how much I like light bean and corn salads, so she made it with me in mind, for a bridal shower we were throwing. She thought I would love it, and I did! :) I've got a couple other bean & corn salad recipes I enjoy, but this one is a bit different because of the rice and salsa. Good for you and tastes good, too. Prep time is mostly due to the time it takes to cook the rice.
Fresh, Healthy and DELICIOUS! The lemon with the feta is unbelievable. I eat this over Salad, with tortilla chips, or just plain!
Eye the amount of olive oil if you want a drier salad
