Mom's Marinated Vegetables

Rating: 4.5 stars 17
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.

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.

Cracker Salad

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

Rating: 4.5 stars 30
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.

Picnic Marinated Summer Slaw

Rating: 4.5 stars 54
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!

Japanese Restaurant Cucumber Salad

Rating: 4.5 stars 50
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.
