Chef John's Green Goddess Dressing

Rating: Unrated
This creamy, herby, addictively delicious sauce is not only my favorite salad dressing, but is one of my favorite dips as well. You can of course tweak the acidity with more or less lemon, as well as play with the salt and pepper, but please do not change the trio of herbs. The way the parsley and chive play against the sweet tarragon makes this unlike any other herb dressing.

Judy's Strawberry Pretzel Salad

This three-layer salad includes a pretzel crust, cream cheese center, and strawberry top.

Spinach and Persimmon Salad with Goat Cheese and Pomegranate

I love how the sweet persimmon balances out the tartness that you get from the pomegranate arils and creamy goat cheese. Top that with the crunch of sliced almonds, and you have the perfect fall salad.

Barbie's Tuna Salad

Rating: Unrated
This is a really great tuna salad recipe I got from a friend who used it in her catering service business many years ago. The secret ingredients are the curry and Parmesan cheese! Odd combinations but this makes a terrific tuna sandwich! She used it for an appetizer with gourmet crackers and people always wanted her recipe. I have never tasted another tuna salad quite like this one, and it has been my favorite recipe for tuna salad for many, many years.
