Sesame Pasta Chicken Salad
A refreshing light pasta salad with a delicious Asian flair. Great for a summer cookout or picnic. Tastes great right away, and even better if you can allow it to marinate for a while.
Chef John's BLT Pasta
If you can't decide whether to make a BLT sandwich or a pasta, now you can do both. The combination of bacon, lettuce, and tomato has a proven track record of deliciousness! Try this BLT pasta for yourself.
Thai-Inspired Noodle Salad
A zesty treat--goes great with bbq'd chicken and a beer. If you're feeling adventurous mix in 1/2 cup of shredded dried seaweed (nori) just before serving.
Green Bean Salad with Feta
This super-green salad has lots of antioxidants, including lutein, beta carotene and vitamin C, and it's a delicious way to help you rack up the seven to nine daily servings of fruits and vegetables recommended for adults.
Taco Salad with Lime Vinegar Dressing
This is a quick-to-throw-together taco salad that even picky family members will eat, as you can serve any of the ingredients on the side. I sometimes serve with taco shells and let my five-year-old make tacos out of the ingredients (minus the dressing for the salad). Serve salad with tortilla chips, avocado, cilantro, and Cheddar cheese to taste. Yum!
Alaine's Blue Cheese Dressing
Once you have tasted this blue cheese dressing recipe, no other will compare. No bottled dressing or restaurant dressing will ever measure up to this killer dressing.
Chef John's Ranch Dressing
It's been ages since I made homemade ranch dressing, and I'd forgotten how much better it is than the bottled stuff.
