Popular Salad Recipes

Everyone remembers a special salad that showed up at family gatherings year after year. Maybe in your family, it was a classic Waldorf studded with celery and crunchy apples, or a bowl full of iceberg lettuce drizzled with blue cheese - or perhaps an eccentric aunt always brought a Jell-O mold studded with pineapple and cottage cheese. Salads are an integral part of most meals. Fresh veggies and crisp greens provide balance to rich foods like mac and cheese, while creamy mayonnaise-based salads and slaws give great contrast to roasted and barbecued meats. Lunchtime calls out for some of your favorite salad recipes: potato salad, chicken salad, pasta salad, macaroni salad, egg salad - wouldn't your life be bleak without them? Consider learning to make your own salad dressings instead of defaulting to store-bought bottles - it's not only cheaper, but much more flavorful. Most, including basic vinaigrette, take only minutes to put together.

Potato-Cauliflower Salad

Sharp, tangy, and a little bit smoky, this stellar potato salad -- featuring crisp bacon and blue cheese -- is more than just the usual picnic fare. The brilliant addition of nutrient-rich cauliflower is inspired, making this dish truly extraordinary. Choose cauliflower that is firm, with compact florets; the leaves should be crisp and green, with no sign of yellowing. Refrigerate raw, tightly wrapped, for 3-5 days.
