Amish Macaroni Salad

According a teenager eating this Amish Macaroni Salad for the first time, it is “the best thing I have ever eaten.” I am not sure everyone would agree as I know some people do not appreciate the sweetness of the dressing. However, I think many people would at least agree that they love Amish Macaroni […]

Pear Jello Salad

Gelatin salads remind me of my grandmother.  I think she made a different one for every holiday.  I loved ones with fruit and without cottage cheese.  Cottage cheese in any gelatin salad was always a dissappointment to me and was not something I would usually eat…despite liking both Jello and cottage cheese seperately. I was […]

Warm German Potato Salad

My mom used to tell me that German potato salad was her favorite. As a young adult, she had boarded at the home of an older woman who had immigrated to the United States from Germany. I believe this is where she developed her affinity for the warm potato salad. My mom would rarely make […]

A Simple Taco Salad a.k.a Taco Haystack

It stikes me as rather odd that a simple taco salad now holds many memories and takes me back to practically another lifetime. I have no concept of how many taco salads I have consumed in my lifetime, but I do know that there were many. Almost all of them were ordered in restaurants and […]

Linguine Salad with a Red Wine Vinaigrette

My sister found a package of Rossi’s Black Olive Linguine on sale and brought it from Ohio to us knowing how much my daughter loves olives. It took me months awhile to figure out what to make with it. You see, I don’t like black olives.  However, I have loved Rossi’s Pasta since the first […]

Chickpea (Garbanzo Bean) and Beet Salad

Inspired by a salad served at a regional chain Italian restaurant, I made a chickpea and beet salad. My version of this simple salad has the chickpeas two ways, cooked (canned) and roasted. The roasted chickpeas provide a slightly nutty and crunchy element to the salad without nuts or gluten. The salad is very easy […]

Apple Salad with Vanilla Dressing

Although Apple Salad with Vanilla Dressing could be considered a side dish, I think of it as dessert. It is a great no-bake option that can easily serve a crowd. Plus, it is rich in flavor and fiber. As written, the dressing recipe has a very strong vanilla flavor. If you aren’t a fan of […]

Italian Hoagie Salad

This recipe of my parents-in-law is always popular at gatherings including potlucks, holiday events, and game night parties. It is a great “go-to” dish because it fits in with the food selection no matter the season. Plus, it makes a lot with relatively little effort and no actual cooking. My in-laws usually serve it on […]

Simple Shrimp Salad

Inspired by lobster rolls, I decided to make a shrimp version. It did not take me long to decide not to try and make my own New England-style hot dog buns to put the shrimp mixture in, so my shrimp roll quickly became a shrimp salad. Although a traditional lobster roll has only mayonnaise, I […]

Linguine Salad

Linguine salad was one of my mom’s summertime favorites. I’m not sure exactly when she started making it or where she acquired the recipe. I do know she loved to make it to use some of the many vegetables my parents grew in their garden. She also loved having family and friends to the farm […]
