"Coleslaw is one of my husband's favorite side dishes," says Shirley Glaab from Hattiesburg, Mississippi. "We love this version because it's not as sweet as other slaws, but it's very colorful and the ingredients always make our mouths water."
I found this recipe in a magazine in an orthodontist’s office over 25 years ago. I wrote it on an old piece of paper, which I found in my purse, and still have it that way in my card file. It’s the best potato salad recipe I have every tried.
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.
For a different spin on a typical fruit salad, try this creamy mint sauce from Diane Hixon of Niceville, Florida. It’s delicious dolloped on orange slices and other fresh fruit. TIP: “In summer, it’s very refreshing served over melon, strawberries and red and green grapes,” Diane notes.
