Chicago Macaroni Salad
My family is from Chicago. This is one of my grandma's best recipes that's been handed down. Kids love it because of the cheese cubes! It's a great potluck dish because it has a lot of color! I use salad macaroni because of its small size.
Authentic German Potato Salad
This is my mother's recipe. Everyone, German or not, loves it. It is easy to double the recipe as well. I often bring it to potlucks, and we also have it at home on special occasions. There are usually no leftovers, but if there are, they don't last long!
A colorful summer salad with great flavor. Whenever I share this dish at a potluck, I am always asked for the recipe.
Bow-Tie Pasta Salad
My aunt and mom created this recipe. It is a family favorite and a great item to bring to picnics and potlucks.
Aunt Karen's Brussels Sprouts Salad
This salad goes very well with most pork dishes. Light and refreshing!
Napa Cabbage Salad
This is a yummy, crunchy cabbage salad with toasted ramen noodles and almond slivers. The bowl is always licked clean at potlucks!
Three Bean Salad With Celery
This salad recipe is great for summer picnics. It's delicious, quick, and easy to make. You can substitute the variety of beans in this recipe with other types and still have a great bean salad. I sometimes use cannellini beans in place of the green beans and it still tastes great!
Thai Cucumber Salad
This sweet and tangy summer salad of cucumber, cilantro, and peanuts with just a hint of heat is always a hit at picnics and potlucks since it doesn't need to be refrigerated and you're pretty much guaranteed to be the only one bringing this dish!
Black Bean and Wild Rice Salad
I love this cold salad as a light lunch or dinner, or as a side dish in the summer or fall. The orange and herb vinaigrette is really delicious! Dried cherries are a tasty substitution for the dried cranberries. And pecans work well if you don't have cashews.
Freda's Cherry Supreme Salad
This was my grandmother Freda's 'famous' cherry salad. It was a huge hit at family gatherings. My mom mixes the lemon Jello, lemon juice, cream cheese and mayo in the blender. But here's the original recipe. Enjoy!
Classic Macaroni Salad
This is a salad that everyone seems to love. I always get lots of compliments on this recipe and it is just a pleasing taste that seems to suit everyone.
Chicken Noodle Salad
Get ready to make all sorts of friends when you bring a big bowl of this Asian chicken noodle salad to the next big cookout. The only folks you might scare away are the ones who brought regular pasta salads. There's just something delightfully addictive about this special combination of cold and spicy. This recipe is the perfect catchall for all those summer vegetables we're supposed to be eating more of, as well as any dry leftover chicken you have around.
