    I need a salad recipe

    My guild is having a salad supper next week and I want to try something new. I took cornbread salad last year and it was passed over by most. Not sure why last potluck I took it to everyone wanted the recipe. It's a salad supper so we have everything from meat salads to desert salads. Does anyone have a great salad recipe they would share? Thanks!

    For years I made cantelope, green grapes, bananas, and added a small amount of raw sugar. A dolope of sour cream an top when served and a sprinkle of cinnamon is good. Bon appetite ! Hugs

    Someone posted a recipe for a fruit salad with a dry custard package. I haven't made it yet but I plan to when the warm weather gets here. I think something with fruit would go over well with ladies at your guild. It is in recipes under Best Easy Fruit Saad.

    ¼ cup dried cranberries
    2 tbsp. chopped fresh parsley
    2 tbsp. raspberry vinegar
    1 tbsp. olive oil
    ½ tsp. salt

    Broccoli Salad......never get to bring leftovers home, no matter how much or how little I make.

    2 crowns of Broccoli cut into florets....bite size
    1/4 to 1/2 purple onion, peel, cut in half from stem to root, cut this in half crosswise and slice into sticks
    1/4 to 1/2 cup broken pecans
    1/4 cup thinly sliced carrots....or shred on large side of grater
    1 to 2 c craisins
    3 to 5 slices of thick cut bacon, cooked crisp and cooled
    1 to 2 cups mayonnaise mixed with about 1/2 c Miracle Whip and sweetner of your choice, stir this until sweetener, either sugar or substitute is mixed well and is smooth.

    Mix all together and stir to mix well. Cover and refrigerate.
    Let set at least 2-4 hrs or overnight is better

    Hope you enjoy.

    3 to 5 slices of thick cut bacon, cooked crisp and cooled; crumble this over salad and mix in.
    1 to 2 cups mayonnaise mixed with about 1/2 c Miracle Whip and sweetner of your choice, stir this until sweetener, either sugar or substitute is mixed well and is smooth. This needs to be sweet to your taste, I use Stevia because we are diabetic.

    Mix all together and stir to mix well. Cover and refrigerate.
    Let set at least 2-4 hrs or overnight is better

    Hope you enjoy.

    My SIL makes a yummy 7 Layer Salad for the holidays. There's quite a few (slightly different) recipes of it on the internet. She puts it in a cut glass pedestal bowl. Beautiful, too.
