Here are a few favorite salads from my kitchen to yours. These are the ones that I especially like to bring to potlucks, barbecues, or any other summer shindig. Oh sure there are tons of times I like to bring a big platter of tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, and basil, or a big bowl of fresh fruit salad, but those aren’t recipes are they? These are the ones that folks have repeatedly asked me for the recipe. Enjoy…
The top photo is Dig Deep, a layered salad of lettuce, tomatoes, peas, cheese, bacon, red onions, hard cooked eggs, and a thick and creamy dressing schmeared over top. So pretty made in single servings in jars or plastic cups.
Chicken Ramen Salad, always a huge hit at potlucks. No hard rules on this one, we have also enjoyed dried cherries, shrimp in place of chicken, pecans, cantaloupe, or pineapple. Make it yours.
Broccoli Slaw Salad has kinds of things going on here. Really good with pulled pork, brisket, and ribs. Yeah that kind of BBQ!
Make your own wedgie bar, because everyone likes to pick their own wedgies. Great for when kids are involved and everyone gets what they like.
Then there is the Mini Classic Wedgie in a Jar. So cute on your buffet table when a tiny wedgie is often better than a big one.
My all-time favorite, most requested dressing? Pink Lady Poppy Seed Dressing
