I'm finally realising that it's not that I don't like salad, I just don't like lettuce+tomato+cucumber and nothing else. Which is completely the opposite to my parents.
Anyway, this is a list of salads that I'm going to try over this summer
This is my favorite way to dress up salad greens. You can add almost anything to the salad, but oranges and grapes are my favorites. The dressing is not overly sweet or tart-a nice balance. Even my 2 and 4 year olds will eat salad when prepared this way!
If you are a curry lover, then this chicken salad is worth trying, it is very good! You can add in onions also if desired, peanuts can be subbed for the walnuts. Plan ahead, this needs be refrigerated for a minimum of two hours or more. Prep time includes refrigeration time
I know there are a ton of chicken salad recipes out there, but this one is unique in that it includes chopped peaches and fresh mint! It's great in a wrap or simply served on a bed of lettuce. I got this from Betty Crocker, and the cook time equals the time it takes to chill.
This is one of the nicest salads I've ever made. In fact my husband who is very adverse to green foods loves it. It's very, very tasty! Wensleydale is a pale, mild and crumbly soft cheese - the version made with cranberries is best for this recipe. I got this recipe from a sheet of recipes handed out at a cookery demonstration.
I got this recipe from the deli ladies at my local Meijer store, then tweaked it a little bit. It's to die for! I'm a real lemon freak, and this easy recipe makes my tastebuds quite happy...(NOTE: Cooking time is chill time.)
If you are a curry lover, then you will really enjoy this cold rice salad. The chilling times for this recipe is about 3 hours so plan ahead, preparing a day in advance is even better. All ingredients may be doubled if deired.
I loved the combination of full ripe fruits and intensive flavors of fresh herbs at first try. This easy to make recipe is the outcome - a summerly small salad. Can be used as a side dish or whenever you feel it is time for an extra fruits 'n' herbs snack. Use full ripe fresh fruits and herbs for best results. Serve with ice tea or some dry white wine.
This healthy, flavorful, and colorful recipe is from Light and Tasty’s April/May 2005 issue. Grilled chicken, tomato, dried cranberries, walnuts, cheddar cheese, olives, green onions…served over fresh salad greens, this sounds like a truly gourmet meal for two! I haven’t tried it yet, but the unique combination of ingredients sounds great.
