This has been a quest for me since eating at the III Forks in North Dallas a few years. I tried to duplicate the dressing but failed miserably, many times. I found this version on the Texas Monthly website & it comes darn close to the original.
This recipe comes for a BHG small CB with favorite recipes from 1930 until 2001. This particular recipe comes from 1941. This recipe interests me because when I was in my early teens, our family went back to Oklahoma to visit all our relatives. This was the salad that my aunt made every day we were there. I have never had it since then.
This is very similar to a salad served at a neighborhood restaurant. I love the combination of the cheese, bacon and honey salad dressing. Prep time includes the overnight refrigeration of the salad dressing.
There was a request for the Outback's Blue Cheese Chopped Salad on the forum today... it's been a couple of years since I had the salad myself, but I recall really enjoying it! The request set my tastebuds a'craving, so I put together this salad. We took it to a potluck today - I had two servings of it for lunch, and the husband and potluck attendees pronounced it great! :)
Another tasty looking recipe that I found on a supermarket circular. The combination of figs and goat is such a pleasure, I'm looking forward to trying this. When I finally get around to making this, will probably look for some ways to reduce the oil in the dressing.
This is a must at your holiday dinner table for Thanksgiving or Christmas, it's an easy salad to put together and is really good! You can make your own recipe for raspberry walnut vinaigrette, or use the one with this recipe, this recipe goes back years and is from Gourmet magazine and I make it quite often, it's really good, or you can purchase a good-quality dressing.
This Asian inspired salad makes for a lovely luncheon or supper. The contents of the salad can easily be adjusted to whatever you like or have on hand. If you prefer a vegetarian meal, omit the chicken or use tofu instead. Won't be chicken salad but will still be delicious.
I have made this many times over the years for large gatherings, everyone loves it and I am always asked for the recipe --- the dressing is wonderful with potatoes or cooked pasta, you may of coarse double the amounts to feed more people --- all ingredients may be adjusted to suit taste, throw in some cooked ham or bacon if desired, plan ahead this salad must chill for at least 3 or more hours before serving, the longer chilling time the better! --- if making the potato salad and prefer a creamier salad then double the dressing amount
Tasty and pretty enough for guests. If you don't have raspberry vinegar use a little more balsamico, which has not as much acid. I use a nutty flavored oil, but I think a fruity olive oil should work, too.
