These are the salad recipes submitted for June's Topic of the Month, Salads and Light Summer Fare. This topic is so large, one cookbook could not contain it all. So this month we have TWO coobooks. Be sure to check out the recipes for Light Summer Fare at: http://www.recipezaar.com/mycookbook/book/79769
Have you ever posted a recipe and just love reading the reviews for it? This is my signature potato salad. Whenever there is a pot luck function at work, I am TOLD that I have to bring the potato salad. No one else is allowed to and I am never given a choice. Thank you everyone who ever tried this potato salad and for leaving such glowing reviews for it. You all have made me look so good. I personally can not stand eggs or raw onions, so I leave them out but I know most people don't think a potato salad is complete without them. Thanks again for so many wonderful reviews. (psssst....check out my recipe #123107 as well. It shares the dressing with this recipe but tastes much much different because of the different ingredients) Please see Recipe #242966 for bacon bit tips.
Put this together for unexpected Lunch guests today. (from what I had around.) It turned out so delicious, had to share it. Served it with a platter of sliced tomatoes, celery sticks, carrots sticks, torn lettuce, and pickles, with havarti Jalepino cheese slices and whole wheat kieser rolls. and thawed frozen strawberries for dessert!! Funny how last minute things, sometimes turn out so well.
This is without a doubt, the best potato salad I have ever had. I make it mostly in the summer when I BBQ but you could make it anytime. It looks fussy but really quite easy to make and just delicious.
Are you as tired of all the cream cheese and sour cream dishes as I am this holiday season? Looking for something LIGHT? Try this recipe! No cream cheese, sour cream or mayo in sight! This recipe comes from the Light & Tasty magazine. I had to post it because it is FANTASTIC! I loved it! You should try it if you need a break (like I did) and want something light! This does the trick! (I sometimes double the dressing!)
I got this recipe from a good friend who brought it to a cookout. We all asked for the recipe so I thought I'd post it here on Zaar. It really does go together quickly, hence the name!! Please make sure you use the SHELLED sunflower seed kernels.
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.
The spices make this version of the Lebanese salad special--and it's important to use good olive oil and lots of fresh lemon juice. Prep time does not include overnight soaking of the bulgur and herb mixture.
This is one salad that is best prepared right before dinner and served at room temperature. The twists and turns of the corkscrew pasta are ideal for trapping the tasty dressing. Just be sure to rinse the cooked pasta under cold running water before adding the other ingredients. Otherwise, it will continue to cook in the oil and vinegar, and turn mushy.
This is one of my recipes featured in Southern Living. A gal named "Dee" made this and brought it to our office about 40 years ago, and it's been my favorite mac salad ever since. She said you can put almost any fresh garden veggie in this and it will work.
