Even More Summer Salads

Updated on August 27, 2009

Chicken Salad Party Luncheon

1 cup Mayonnaise

1 cup plain yogurt

1 Tablespoon prepared mustard

1/4 cup Bermuda onion, grated

4 cup diced rotisserie chicken

1 cup diced celery

1 cup diced green pepper

1/2 cup sliced black olives

1 can mandarin oranges, drained

1 can pineapple tidbits, drained

Combine and chill. Just before serving, add one large can Chinese noodles and fold in carefully.

Dressed-Up Salad Kits

I cut this out of the St. Petersburg Times. I thought it was a great idea.

Many people rely on salad kits because they are easy and usually don't leave leftovers.

The Caesar salad kits can be dressed-up numerous ways, the most popular would be to top the greens with grilled salmon, shrimp or chicken.

Other ideas from the Dinner Doctor: Fold cubed avocado into the salad and season dressing with a little chili powder and fresh lime juice. Toss salad with 3 cups of hot, cooked penne and pass extra grated Parmesan cheese at the table. Serve with cold-cooked shrimp and slices of fresh mango; fold a drained, flaked can of tuna into the salad and garnish with oil-marinated green olives.

Sauerkraut Salad

This is a salad that my grandmother used to make.

1 large can sauerkraut (drained and pressed or squeezed dry)

1/2 cup vegetable oil

1 rounded cup granulated sugar

1/2 cup vinegar

1 red or green pepper, chopped

1 cup chopped celery

1 small onion, chopped, or 2 green onions

Mix together the sauerkraut, oil, sugar, vinegar, green pepper, celery and onion. Marinate for 24 hours before serving.

      Haha, Scott. Thanks for the compliment. I have a Bar-B-Q Kraut recipe that is delicious. My kid's Nana makes it and serves it over mashed potatoes! Yumm!

      They just keep getting better. But then agian, how can you go wrong with sauerkraut?

      Have you ever considered adoption?
