Tuna Salad

Tuna salad is delicious either as a salad or as a sandwich. Use this recipe for both, and then modify it to your own taste if you want to. I normally purchase canned tuna. There are several brands and several varieties of tuna available. Regardless of the brand name,...

Southwest Salad

OK, I admit that the idea for this salad came from Jack-In-The-Box. But their salad was very good, and I made it at home for those who hadn't had it at JBox yet and got lots of complements. With quesadillas on the side, this recipe made a great and fairly light...

Red Onion Salad

OK, I'll admit that this simple salad is a takeoff on one of our favorites at Morton's. But this one is a LOT cheaper! To make the salad, you really only need a few ingredients. Obviously, you need a red onion. However, it is unfortunately true that most red onions...

When Mary Ann made this salad for us, I at first thought it was a Waldorf Salad. But it has pecans instead of walnuts (and we like pecans better, anyway), and it didn't have grapes in it. Well, we were out of grapes. But she put in apple slices and carrot pieces and...

Coleslaw

There are lots of recipes for coleslaw, and you might very well adapt some of these to come up with your own favorite. I tend to try new ones from time to time, since there always seems to be room for improvement. There are two main categories of coleslaw; those with...

The Original Caesar Salad

The Caesar salad originated in Tijuana, Mexico in 1924, more or less by accident. Caesar Cardini, an Italian-American, owned and operated Caesar's Hotel. It was during prohibition in the U.S., on the Fourth of July weekend. The hotel was packed with the usual tourists...

Broccoli Salad

I know, food that's good for you isn't supposed to taste good. But here's a great exception. Sure, I was a little skeptical when Susan said she was bringing this salad for a family get-together, but with lots of people I figured everything would get eaten. But I was...

Avocado and Shrimp Salad

Here's a quick and delicious salad recipe, either for an appetizer or for a light supper on a summer evening. The salad shown in the photo uses Remoulade sauce, but if you don't have the time or energy, use bottled or home made salad dressing, tartar sauce, or seafood...
