    A light, fresh and very tasty potato salad, which is more of a meal than a side dish! I made this up when I had a few spears of fresh asparagus left, some boiled potatoes and some honey roast ham in the fridge! This recipe/idea is for two people - but it can be increased with ease, hence my listing of the ingredients in numbers, rather than in ounces or grammes! The dressing can be made ahead......and, hopefully it will be warm enough to sit outside and soak up the spring or early summer sun......c'est Parfait!

    Recipe #226549

    You can substitute ham for the Canadian bacon if you like. Great summer salad.

    Here's another recipe from THE BEST OF COOKING by Arne Kruger & Annette Wolter, this time a great make-ahead summer salad full of color, flavor & textural crunch that is ideal for patio grill party, picnic, camping & potluck occasions. The recipe suggests a mildly-flavored & not very hard cheddar cheese, but allows for subs such as Gouda or Monterey Jack. (Please see note that follows the prep) *Enjoy*

    Recipe #226984

    If using bamboo rather than metal skewers, soak in water for 30 minutes before using. Personally, I'm partial to Miss Annie's Recipe #41602, but use bottled if you like. The first ingredient should read "steak tips, cut into, etc." not "steak, tips cut into . . ."

    Recipe #213047

    This is from Splenda's website. I thought it was very good and healthy too!

    Recipe #196644

    This is a really delicious salad. Great way of using up apples and that last bit of ham in the fridge. It was adapted from The Best of Country Cooking. Cooking time is time spent in the fridge. You may also want to add a finely minced garlic clove.

    Great for summer

    Recipe #85215

    This is out of Country Cookings Prize Winning Salads recipe collection. This is not only a good side dish, but also hearty enough to be a meal on it's own. Prepare this ahead of time for the flavors to blend.

    Recipe #179313

    A fabulous summer meal, marinade the meat and make the dressing the night before then throw dinner together FAST. Excellent for casual dinner parties and dieters. I've had this mouth-watering salad at a couple of different Thai restaurants, I was unable to find a recipe so I combined several to make my own. This salad is very spicy yet the bursts of freshness from the lime and mint make it a celebration for the taste buds. It's extremely addictive and very healthy, no oil!

    Recipe #89570

    This is an excellent way to use that leftover pork roast. Simply shred it up and use it in this wonderful quick-and-easy salad. You can also combine the shredded pork with a small amount of the Cheesy-Barbecue Salad Dressing and have a quick burrito filling! This recipe came from a food magazine but I can't remember which one.

    Recipe #177883

    Many years ago I used to buy a smoked sausage and this recipe was on the package. I made it often back then,I don't remember what kind of sausage it was!

    Recipe #174603

    Here's a great salad to enjoy perhaps outside in the summer with a tall, cold glass of iced tea or wine. It's a perfect "go to" meal because it's easy, economical, fun, and don't forget tasty! From BHG!

    Recipe #166266

    This pork salad it to die for, it is one that you should really not pass up on making! I have made this several times, it is one of my family favorite main dish salads. If you prefer more apricot dressing, just double the recipe. To save time I most always cook the tenderloin a day ahead, slice and just refrigerate until ready to use it saves a lot of time and prep work. I have substituted feta for the blue cheese, and walnuts for the pecans, also, I have made this salad on several occasions using cooked chicken breast in place of the pork tenderloin, just broil the breast and baste using the same method using the apricot glaze. If serving more than 3-4 people I suggest to double the recipe, I could eat this whole salad myself lol! Prep time includes cooking the tenderloin or chicken breast.

    Recipe #118854

    I love the combination of roast beef, horseradish and dill. If you have leftover roast beef on hand, you can make this in minutes. This cold dish encompasses all three. If you like, you can add 1 or 2 baked potatoes, diced, though I don't usually do this unless I have to extend the salad to more people than usual. Please note that, as written, the lettuce is just meant as a bed to serve the beef salad on (I usually omit it when making it just for myself). If you want to mix the lettuce INTO the meat salad, increase the amount of dressing.

    Recipe #91878

    Great for a luncheon. Especially attractive in a glass salad bowl. You can substitute canned beans for the fresh and omit cooking them (doesn't taste quite as good as with fresh, though.) Best if made a day ahead. The dressing also works with cold pork or lamb.

    Recipe #93079

    This Dutch recipe is my favorite pork salad. If you don't like beets, omit the beet. I don't bother to peel the tomato.

    Recipe #100354

    Recipe #15327

    This is a great main dish salad for lunch or dinner in the summertime. It's a colorful salad, too!

    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.
