Best Salad Recipes





Here you will find a few of my best salad recipes, very scrumptious and all are easy to make, some of them like the carrot or cauliflower salad for example, make excellent side dishes you can serve, while others like broccoli salad or any of the potato salads, or macaroni salad are stand alone meals in themselves. The oriental salad is another one I make often.

Especially during the hot summer months one or two of them can usually be found in my fridge at any given time as most of them will keep well for a few days.

Most of these salads are also great served along with that irresistible grilled steak, ribs, hamburgers, sausage or fish to family and friends.

Some of these great salads are excellent side-dishes at any time of the year.

The easy egg salad recipe you will find here I use all the time to make egg salad sandwiches.

Hopefully you will enjoy the salads you make as much as I enjoy passing the recipes along.
