I'm a huge fan of chicken salad and have tried so many different variations over the years, but this one is by far my favorite. Simple, refreshing flavors and great texture make it wonderful on a sandwich or just served over a bed of lettuce!
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.
I'd turned my nose up at this for years, but suddenly I can't get enough of it. Thanks, Momma D!
This light and crunchy salad is excellent with BBQ chicken. This recipe is from my mother-in-law and has been a family favorite for years.

This salad brings together ingredients that really enhance each other, and the dressing packs a perfect punch with maple syrup, brown sugar, and apple cider vinegar. It's a favorite in my family!
Watch your back, Caesar! This salad could be the next national favorite and was inspired by a salad I had at a seafood restaurant in Healdsburg, CA. With apple slices, romaine lettuce, Cheddar cheese, fresh herbs, toasted pecans, and Dijon vinaigrette, it's amazing.
This salad is a complete meal and perfect for those hot days when you really don't want to spend too much time in the kitchen. I used deli ham but leftover baked ham is delicious in this salad.
This is a recipe my mom and grandmother use every time there's a family gathering or a special occasion. To make this a vegetarian dish just leave out the ham. Potatoes, carrots, and eggs do not have to be chilled completely after boiling. Dill can be substituted for parsley if desired.
After searching for a recipe for an antipasto salad that I had envisioned in my head, I gave up and just decided to create one myself. I made this dish for a party and everyone couldn't stop talking about it. The ratio of meat/cheese to veggies can be adjusted to taste.

Chicken club sandwich-style pasta! Substitute Monterey Jack cheese for the Muenster, if desired.
This is a version of the classic broccoli salad with the addition of cauliflower. It can be prepared the day prior to serving, then served chilled or at room temperature. Pecans can be used instead of sunflower seeds, if desired, and bacon lovers might want to add a few extra slices. . .
This a great salad to have for a simple lunch or to serve with a nice dinner. Fresh ingredients make this salad very elegant and the wedge presentation makes it a great starter for a special occasion dinner. It is best to chill the dressing for 24 hours prior to serving.
