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 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.
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 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.
Tangy and sweet, this has a little less sugar than other recipes. I plan to try this with splenda. Adapted from my More With Less Mennonite cookbook. Either canned or dried, cooked beans may be used. I chose my favorite beans, but many other kinds can be substituted.
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.
I first tried a salad like this in a restaurant. I think my homemade version is much better. Hat's off to Luby for the outstanding recipe for Blue Cheese Dressing which is the only one I will eat now. I copied the recipe verbatim, and included all steps in making the dressing straight from Luby's recipe, #55514. This is my favorite salad in the summertime, reminds me of a BLT without the bread.
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! :)
Use whatever type of cooked beans you like in this recipe. You'll need about 4 pounds total. I like to pick out beans that have different colors and shapes, to provide interest. You can use your favorites.
