Perfect Potato Salad
This is my mother Pauline's recipe. It's pretty much a classic American salad but remember, if you add onions, use sweet onions and chop with a very sharp knife, allow potatoes to cool to room temp before dressing them, and always taste for salt.
Low Fat Buttermilk Ranch Dressing
This dressing is the closest thing I could come to perfection. Enjoy it on salads and baked potatoes or use it as a dip for vegetables.
Shrimp and Pasta Shell Salad
When I want to make a macaroni salad just a little bit extra-special, nothing does the trick like some small, sweet shrimp. This is one of my favorite summer salads, and it's oh-so-easy.
Tomato Basil Egg Salad Sandwich
A great sandwich to make when you have a garden of fresh basil and tomatoes. It is very easy to make and very yummy. I would recommend this as an open-faced sandwich for those who are watching their carbs.
Foreplay Pasta with Brie, Basil, and Garlic
It's really that good. Rich and decadent. If you really want to impress, then get a small block of Parmesan and grate it. Gives a better flavor than pre-grated.
Creamy and Crunchy Tuna Salad Supreme
This tuna and cream cheese salad is made special with the addition of cream cheese and chopped raw carrots. Red peppers make it pretty, and one or two other vegetables, fruits, or nuts keep it changing and interesting. I developed this recipe after tasting cream cheese in a salmon salad sandwich at a funeral lunch in Canada many years ago. Add baby spinach or lettuce leaves, and serve on your favorite bread or as a wrap in a tortilla.
Tasty Blue Cheese Salad Dressing
This is my husband's favorite dressing. Besides salads, he likes to use it as a dip for eating artichokes. It is easy to make and tasty.
Chef John's Creamy Blue Cheese Dressing
A cheese grater and a wedge of frozen blue cheese feature in this top-secret method for creamy blue cheese dressing. The grated cheese blends in perfectly as opposed to larger chunks which just sink to the bottom.
