"THE CROWINING GLORY of my aunt's breakfast table was this delightful bowl of fresh fruit. The glorious colors provided the perfect accent to her antique dishes and white linen tablecloth. Bite-sized pieces of melon were prepared the night before, slightly sweetened with corn syrup, and chilled in the icebox. The other fruits were added just prior to serving, making this dish a light, colorful complement to our breakfast."
You can pep up all sorts of events with the pretty salad Jennifer Mottashed of Simcoe, Ontario shares. "It's easy on the cook, too," she notes. Not only is it ideal for mixing up ahead of time, it can be size right for any gathering.
Every member of my family (my husband and I have two grown sons and a grandson) likes creamy-type potato salads. So I make mine often for many occasions. It's usually partially eaten before I can even announce, "It's ready"!
Every time I make this recipe that I received from my mother-in-law, it takes me back to the country. I can see myself in the garden among all of those fresh tomatoes. How good they are, plucked right off the vine.
