Shorecook's Potato Salad with Mayonnaise Dressing

Rating: 4.44 stars
The fantastic flavor of this potato salad is created by peeling the potatoes after they're cooked and mixing the ingredients while warm. Using golden potatoes makes this recipe special! Celery, bell pepper, and olives may be added if desired.

Fruity Chicken Salad with Tarragon

Rating: 5 stars
Chicken salad often finds its way to my summer menus, served on greens or a croissant. I think this one is just a little special. It's sweet and juicy from the apples and grapes, a little savory from the tarragon, crunchy from the pecans and celery, and lightened up a bit with some yogurt.

Make-Ahead Spinach Salad in a Jar

Prep these salads once and eat for the week! Make sure to firmly pack the spinach into each jar and they will stay fresh all week. Use extra spinach if necessary. A great use for leftover quinoa!

Great salad for lunch or dinner! Spiralizing the beets makes for a quicker cooking time. Use any flavored vinegar of your choice - dark berry or fig vinegar make great options!

Pecan Chicken Salad

This chicken salad comes together fast using rotisserie chicken breasts. The herbs, along with the pecans, help to make this chicken salad flavorful. Serve on top of toasted croissants, or butter lettuce.

Warm Caprese Zoodles

Caprese salad meets sauteed zucchini noodles in this super easy dish filled with basil, tomatoes, and gooey cheese. Make sure all your ingredients are ready to go, because this will be ready fast. Take care not to overcook the zucchini noodles to prevent them from becoming mushy. Adjust the basil to your liking.

Inspiration and Ideas

Roasted Veggie Buddha Bowl
Rating: Unrated
Roasted veggies and sauteed tempeh are piled on top of bulgur and drizzled with an orange-curry vinaigrette. Also delicious with chicken or shrimp instead of tempeh.
Mel's Crab Salad
Rating: Unrated
I tried for years to duplicate the crab salad that was made in the seafood market i used to work for, but never could. However, I came up with this one and prefer it a whole lot more. My daughter will hide with the batch I make and eat it all. She doesn't like to share. Serve with club-style crackers.

Healthy Chicken Salad

Rating: 4.54 stars

A protein-packed alternative to the normal chicken salad. This one is healthier, quick, and easy to make. I peeled my apple, personal preference, but feel free to add it unpeeled.
