Mom's Marinated Vegetables
I got this recipe from my mother and I've never seen anything like it elsewhere. It's great for summer since it's cool and crisp. I like to take it to potlucks since it marinates overnight.
Sweet and Crunchy Salad
This is an easy and delicious summer salad. I usually double the recipe for parties. You can also use oriental flavored ramen noodles, if you like.
A summer family favorite. Great with all types of meats. The recipe was given to me years ago by a friend, but I don't have a clue as to the origin.
Chef John's Empty Mayo Jar Dressing
When you're down to that empty mayo jar, don't incessantly scrape or toss it out and open a new one. There's a better way: use the jar to make a dressing.
Chicken Salad with Bacon, Lettuce, and Tomato
This chicken salad has a creamy dressing and is best served over crisp lettuce leaves.
Picnic Marinated Summer Slaw
Oh, this slaw has such a summer taste. This easy-to-prepare slaw was given to me by a neighbor who said a little lady from her church gave it to her! A refreshing and delightful change for slaws. Tastes delicious after allowing to marinate for several hours. Enjoy!
Cranberry and Cilantro Quinoa Salad
I got this recipe from the restaurant my dad built. I love the unique way of cooking the quinoa and the great combinations of the flavors.

Japanese Restaurant Cucumber Salad
Simple and easy to make, with a sweet and spicy dressing that adds a refreshing bite. This recipe comes from a lovely, now-elderly Japanese woman friend who was a second-generation immigrant and patiently endured internment during WWII as a young girl. The cucumber salad is similar to sunomo in Japanese restaurants, but a bit more assertive. The ingredients are available in the Asian or ethnic foods sections of most metropolitan grocery stores. If you're diabetic, use sugar substitute instead of sugar with the same results. Original recipe called for 1 teaspoon MSG also.
