Blue Cheese and Dried Cranberry Tossed Salad

Rating: 4.5 stars 47
This is a very tasty salad; a swanky version of a regular everyday salad. The addition of blue cheese and dried cranberries give it something special. Wherever it is brought people always ask for the recipe!

Red Cabbage and Chickpea Salad

Rating: 4.5 stars 18
A quick and easy chickpea salad made with leftover vegetables--red cabbage, tomatoes, and onions. I used a sun-dried tomato and tahini salad dressing, though any kind could be substituted.

Honey Garlic Vinaigrette

Rating: 4.5 stars 158
I serve this honey vinegar dressing with garlic every time I have friends over because I love getting all the praise. They rave about it! People love the contrast between the snappy garlic and the sweet honey — I'm sure you will too.

Jodi's Marinated Veggies

Rating: 4 stars 23
I have taken this to MANY family and pot luck gatherings and it always is a huge hit. If you have other favorite veggies, you may add, or omit something if your family doesn't like it. Broccoli, cauliflower and mushrooms are just the basics.

Korean Cucumber Salad

Rating: 4 stars 168
When I lived in Korea, I was shown this Korean cucumber salad recipe, made with cucumbers, green onions, and sesame seeds. Goes well with bulgogi (Korean barbecued beef), which you can find on this site!

This is a festive taco style salad that I have made at every family gathering, due to all the requests I get for it. Serve it as a side, or as a meal.

Aw-some Coleslaw

Rating: 4.5 stars 664
This is a sweet but tangy slaw that my family loves. It reminds me of the slaw at KFC. It's always best if left over night.

Red Cabbage Salad

Rating: 4.5 stars 113
Colorful, crisp red cabbage is tossed with tasty oil and vinegar dressing.

Chinese Chicken Salad III

Rating: 4.5 stars 414
This is one of my favorite salads. It tastes so good you wouldn't even suspect it's low-fat. Wonton wrappers (or skins) can be found in the deli or produce section of most supermarkets.
