Norris' Sesame Pasta Salad
Do not question whether or not to try this recipe. It is a nice pasta salad for any occasion that, once tasted, one cannot resist having some more.
Creamy Bacon Cheddar Dressing
This decadently creamy dressing pairs Cheddar cheese and freshly cooked bacon for a sure-fire taste-bud pleaser.
Copycat Italian Salad Dressing
My family prefers the store brand of Italian dressing to any of the name brands. They all pretty much taste the same and have the same ingredients. This is a copycat of their dressing using mostly ingredients from the cabinet most people keep on hand or can find easily. The water makes it stretch a little further for those on a tight budget, but you might also like it without.
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.
Thai Rice Noodle Salad
Just made it up 5 minutes ago and it's really good. It can be served warm or cold; toss again right before serving. Do not overcook the noodles.
Spicy Rice Noodle Salad
The first time I had a spicy, cold rice noodle salad, it wasn't the bold flavors that caught me by surprise, but the strange and addictive texture.
Poppy Seed Dressing I
I make this dressing, and have it on hand in the fridge to use on any vegetable salad. Recipe is easily doubled.
