I am salad-impaired. Need a recipe to go with...

Recommended Posts

My in-laws are coming in a week. Personally, I will, by necessity, be living on Jack Daniels while they are visiting, but I have to feed the rest of the household something. I would like a "new" salad idea. The rest of my menu will be:

Creamy Chicken and Noodles

Green Beans

Sister Shubert (sp?)rolls

Salad???? this is where someone will hopefully inspire me!


White chocolate chip cake for dessert.


I would like an "interesting" but not too flamboyant salad. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance!

Even the kids LOVE this one:


Strawberry Salad


500g Spinach

1 pint Strawberries

Slivered almonds


Sesame Poppy Seed Dressing:


1/4 cup sugar

1/4 cup poppy seeds (or less)

1/4 tsp paprika

1/4 cup raspberry cider vinegar

1-1/2 tsp chopped onion

1/4 tsp Worcestershire sauce

1/2 cup vegetable oil


Mix dressing ingredients. Toss Dressing into salad and enjoy.

Are you looking for a "sweet" side salad (a la the south & midwest) or a green salad (the rest of us)? I lived in Iowa for 8 years. Those things they call "salad" out there, we call dessert! LOL


I've recently started buying the boxed spring salad mix and/or herb salad mix at the food store. I mix it in with romaine, add croutons, raisins or dried cranberries, some shredded carrot if you feel like it, some shredded cheese, etc. Whatever you want.


Easy and yummy. And this stuff doesn't have that "bag-o-salad" smell or taste to it. It just tastes FRESH and good for you!

I printed out both the spinach salad and fluff! Actually, the fluff would go well with the lunch menu I am having! I think I will do the spinach with the creamy chicken and noodles so as not to be overly creamy with dinner! But, the fluff will go well with my black bean soup. Thanks to both of you. Excelsior, can you expand on the size of your "containers" for these ingredients?

Thanks, again.
