Favorite Summer Salads
3 of my favorite salad recipes
My mother used to make potato salad, coleslaw and macaroni salad every Summer and they are always appropriate for guests.
The night before you make it, you can grate the cabbage and store it in a plastic bag, but I just buy the cabbage already shredded.
3 cups shredded cabbage
1/3 cup mayonnaise, 1 Tablespoon apple cider vinegar, 2 teaspoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon celery seed.
Stir until sugar dissolves. Chill. Serves 4.
Mustard Potato Salad
The night before, you can cook the potatoes with the peel on, until tender. Hard boil 2 eggs.
Combine 2 1/2 cups cubed, cooked potatoes,1 teaspoon sugar,1 teaspoon white vinegar
Add: 1/2 cup chopped onion,3/4 cup mayonnaise,salt, paprika and celery seed, to taste.>
Stir in 2 hard cooked eggs, sliced,2 ribs celery and prepared mustard, to taste. (I use enough until it turns salad yellow)
Chill. Serves 4.
