For potlucks and picnics, this salad's a knockout. I tote the veggies in a bowl, dressing in a jar and noodles in a bag. Then shake them up together when it's time to eat. —LJ Porter, Bauxite, Arkansas
"This crisp, fresh-tasting slaw keeps in the fridge for several days," notes Deborah Moore-Dedenbach from Big Bay, Michigan. It's a bargain, too, at 13 cents a serving. "We live about an hour from the nearest major city, so shopping trips can be few and far between. I often buy cabbage rather than lettuce for salads, because it stores longer," Deborah says.
Chopped apple, celery and green pepper add extra crunch to this crisp cabbage salad shared by Ann Main of Moorefield, Ontario. The lemony homemade dressing has plenty of celery seed and a hint of honey.
Year-round, our family always goes for this crisp, refreshing salad. With a tangy vinegar and oil dressing., it has wonderful homemade flavor. When Mom made it years ago for our family of seven, it was rare to have leftovers.
