This is the salad dressing I grew up with that my mom created. As a child, I didn't realize there were any alternatives. To this day, my mom's salad dressing is still a favorite. Very simple to prepare. If you make it a little ahead of time, it will allow the flavors to blend. I hope you enjoy it!
From our local newspaper. Extremely important to use the freshest ingredients for this salad! Recipe amounts were not given so they have been estimated. A note about olive brine: I use the liquid that the olives are soaked in either the package or the fresh ones from the "olive bar" at the natural food store. However I have tried a dirty martini olive juice from this source: www.garliclady.com based in Vancouver, Washington.
A tasty Kraft Canada recipe that cuts the fat in this rich and creamy classic recipe for a simple summer time dish. The combination of calorie-wise dressings in place of all mayonnaise provides all the flavor and creamy texture of the traditional salad. The 55 minutes includes refrigeration time. A great make-ahead because it can be refrigerated for up to 24 hours.
Another goodie from Taste of Home magazine.
I couldn't find kohlrabi so I just added a couple more radishes. Preparation time is approximate.I poured the cooled portion of the dressing into a measuring cup to make it easier to pour over the veggies.A great make-ahead recipe too.
This potato salad doesn't have any mayonnaise and is great for a picnic because it keeps well. Good with burgers or steak or whatever else you like on the barbecue. Leftovers keep well in the fridge for a couple of days if you have any. For my vegetarian friends I leave out the meat. Posted in response to a request.
A tasty French salad dressing that never separates! This dressing won a prize. It keeps well for weeks in the refrigerator. And what a great hostess gift in a pretty glass jar with a label and the recipe handwritten on an index or recipe card. Add the dressing to a basket with some salad ingredients if you like. Add a few daisies, or other flowers from your garden to the basket for a nice presentation, just before leaving. Dampen the ends of the flower stems with cool water and wrap them in foil before placing them in the basket.
This is a great recipe to take to a potluck! A different type of salad, using spaghetti noodles! This recipe originated in Clarksdale, Mississippi and came from a cookbook titled "Family Secrets....the Best of the Delta". It has lots of ingredients, but there is nothing hard about the recipe. Try it!
This past weekend I went on a camping trip and my assignment was to bring the potato salad. I wanted it to be absolutely perfect so I started messing around with recipes the week before and threw out a few batches before I came up with this. The roasted potatoes enhance the flavor of the garlic and bacon and makes this a great tasting combination. This is best made at least a day ahead so that the bacon flavor can really combine and penetrate the potatoes. Everyone absolutely loved it and I hope you do to.
I developed this dressing years ago, and I can honestly say that you won't be able to keep your spoon out of the fridge for a taste, it is *that* good! --- although I do think the dressing is better with the anchovy it can certainly be made without them. In a pinch I have even substituted buttermilk for the half and half cream, just use about the same amount --- this dressing gets stronger with refrigeration time so a small amount of fresh garlic goes a long way! ---- usually one recipe without doubling is perfect for one large romaine lettuce, if you are serving a large crowd of people you might want to double -- salad dressing will not work for this use *only* mayonnaise, I find Hellman's brand mayonnaise works the best and for the perfect companion to this salad see my recipe#125034-------------LOWER-FAT OPTION use reduced fat mayonnaise and fat-free half and half or low-fat milk --- also see my recipe#66596
The key is chopping the veggies into small pieces. This is what gives the salad such a clean, fresh taste. The small pieces impart juices and flavor. No dressing required. This is good for lunch or as a side dish for dinner. It can be kept in the refrigerator for several days. NOTE: For a Fatoush-type of salad, toast or broil a slice of pita bread; break-up the crispy pieces into the salad.
