Plan ahead the dressing needs a few hours chilling time before serving, you may want to adjust some ingredients after you make this, I would suggest to start with the stated amounts and add in more after mixing, you may use 3 tablespoons freshly grated parmesan cheese in place of the feta cheese --- if you are not a lover of garlic then I suggest to pass this by! --- servings are only esitmated.
For ease I have listed bagged lettuce, all ingredient amounts may be adjusted, this recipe will yield four if you are serving more then double amounts, once the chicken is cooked and the dressing is made this takes little time to put together, I strongly suggest to use my dressing from recipe#116849 --- prep time does not include grilling the chicken ----your family and/or guests will be licking their plate clean!
This is a delicious salad that has lovely colors, for a nice presentation line the serving bowl with whole lettuce leaves, plan ahead the pasta/veggie and Italian dressing mixture needs to chill for at least 6 hours --- the amounts I have listed are just a guideline you may adjust to taste, if you are serving a crowd I would suggest to double.
I have tryed many Green Goddess dressings this one has become my favorite, I have listed low-fat mayo and sour cream of coarse you may go the full-fat route --- plan ahead the dressing needs to chill for at least 4 hours before using even better if left for 24 hours, cooking time is chilling time --- for a nice change try this in a pasta salad in place of just mayonnaise, do not thin with buttermilk if using for a pasta salad :)
If you are a lover of Greek salad and Greek food then you are certain to enjoy this --- once you make this a few times you will most likely need to play around with the dressing ingredient to suit taste, I have listed 1/3 cup mayonnaise to be added to the dressing you may need to adjust the mayonnaise amount to desired creaminess after the salad is mixed --- plan ahead this salad needs to chill for at least 4 hours before serving
A delicious and easy to make salad, I sometimes add in a tablespoon of peanut butter to the dressing, plan ahead the dressing must refrigerate for a couple of hours in advance to blend flavors, it may be doubled if desired -- the salad may be prepared in advance but do not add in the dressing or orange segments until just before serving, prep time does not include cooking the chicken, all amounts may be adjusted to taste :)
All amounts may be adjusted to taste, the dressing amounts will yield just slightly over 1 cup and I strongly suggest to make the dressing in advance even better 24 hours ahead --- serve the salad with crusty bread on the side --- the dressing from my recipe#66596 also works well with this salad
The perfect salad to serve at you holiday dinner table --- if desired place slices of red onion rings around the sides of the bowl --- the salad mixture may be mixed, covered tightly with plastic wrap hours ahead but do not toss in the apples until before serving or they tend to discolour, also do not add in the dressing until serving time, if you are serving more than 8 people double the recipe :)
Add in some cooked chopped chicken or shrimp for a main meal, this salad will also pair well with French dressing instead of the ranch/salsa mixture, see recipe #241296 if you prefer a lot of beans in the salad then add in two cans, don't forget, add in the chips just before serving ;-)
This dressing will have you licking your plates clean, it's that good and better than any bottled! this is best if made a few hours ahead to blend the flavors or make a day ahead --- for creamy French dressing add in the mayonnaise and for creamy blue cheese French dressing add in 1/4 cup or more of crumbled blue cheese --- all amounts may be adjusted to taste
You'll crave this salad once you try it, this also works well with chicken in place of the tuna, please do not omit the sweet pickles they *make* this salad! adjust all amounts to suit taste, plan ahead this needs to chill before serving, cooking time is chilling time
In Greece there are many recipes for this salad, if you love Mediterranean-style full-flavored salads then this is one I think you will really enjoy! You can omit the oil and red wine vinegar and just use the oil from the sun-dried tomatoes, but I like to add it in for extra flavor, use as much artichokes as you like, adjust all ingredients to taste, the oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes are what *makes* this salad so do not omit, also see my recipe#66596
The veggie amounts may be adjusted slightly and the sour cream mixture may be doubled for a creamier salad if desired, plan ahead this salad needs to chill for a couple hours before serving, and may be doubled sucessfully, make certain that the peas are completely dry before added to the salad
A creamy dressing with the perfect blend of spices, adjust the amount of dill to suit taste I advise not to use more than 2 teaspoon fresh garlic or it will overpower the dressing, all other amounts may be adjusted to suit taste --- don't even think about serving this dressing until after it's chilled for at least 4 or more hours and the longer the better --- for a lower fat option use low-fat mayonnaise, sour cream and buttermilk --- for Ranch Peppercorn dressing add in 1 tablespoon cracked black pepper or to taste, and for Parmesan ranch dressing add in 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese or to taste --- this makes a fantastic veggie dip!
This is a simple salad to put together but big on flavor! --- you can also make this using salad greens mixed with fresh spinach, I just purchase a smaller bag of prewashed spinach for this, prep time does not include washing and drying the fresh spinach, all salad ingredients may be adjusted to taste --- you will love this salad!
This recipe makes a large amount but don't worry when you taste this you won't be able to keep your spoon out of the bowl it is *that* delicious! Plan ahead this salad *must* chill for 24 hours before serving. Adjust the Tabasco and all seasonings to taste. This is perfect for a barbecue get together or to take to a potluck!
The amounts listed are only a guideline since I don't even bother measuring please feel free to adjust all ingredients to suit taste but please try not to omit anything all the ingredients blend together perfectly! You could use all mayonnaise but I prefer half mayonnaise and yogurt or sour cream for a lighter texture, if you are making this in advance then add in the diced apple just before serving. If you are a curry-lover then try adding in 1/2 to 1 teaspoon curry powder into the mayo mixture, I think you will be quite surprised at the taste! This is one of the best recipes for chicken salad!... For a luncheon, double or triple the complete recipe and serve this on a bed of lettuce with tomato wedges around the chicken salad then sprinkle more toasted almonds on and around the chicken salad... your guests will rave!
This salad makes a lovely presentation at your holiday table --- feel free to add in other ingredients to the salad, I also like to add in chopped apples just before serving, The dressing must be added in just before serving :)
