Balsamic Vinaigrette

Rating: 4.5 stars 365
This is a tangy vinaigrette--wonderful on mixed greens, tomato, onion and cucumber salads. It's also good if used sparingly over steamed veggies or stir-frys. Sometimes I use traditional balsamic vinegar. However, this will produce a slightly sweeter vinaigrette.

Balsamic Vinegar Potato Salad

If you enjoy marinated potato salads, this recipe is for you. Definitely a delicious way to enjoy potato salad. I used roasted peppers from a jar. Just as good as fresh.

Roasted Mushroom Salad

Rating: 4.5 stars 28
Don't expect conventional nutrients from mushrooms, but they have hidden anti-cancer activity and may stimulate immune function, research finds. Add red pepper's vitamin C, olive oil's good fat, and the antioxidants in basil and garlic for a very healthful salad.
