People always pass on compliments when I take this salad to covered-dish suppers. It's nice on a hot day...with a winter meal...or as a dessert!
We live on a small farm where my garden gives me lots of possibilities for fresh food. I enjoy sewing, tooespecially for our granddaughter.
It's trueorange and onion really does sound like an unusual combination. But when my husband tasted Orange and Red Onion Salad for the first time, he told me, "This one's worth at least three kisses!"
I serve this salad with chicken...it likely would go well with fish, too.
Up until a short time ago, we lived in the San Joaquin Valley, where almonds, peaches and other crops thrive. Nowalong with our 17-year-old son and 12-year-old daughterwe're settling into our new home in the foothills and getting used to seeing row crops and dairy cows instead.
Our two children and I plan to mix up this attractive salad for brunch on Father's Day. It's always been enjoyed wherever I have served it.
Having my recipe chosen as a contest winner is a special treat for meCountry Woman has been my favorite source for new food ideas for years!
My husband and I have been married almost 40 years, and we have 10 children and half a dozen grandchildren. So I'm used to cooking for crowds!
We live out in the country on a small acreage with a big garden. Our daughter enjoys making different kinds of vinegar, and helping her to use them up is how this recipe came about. It always draws umm-umm-good reviews when I serve it at family potlucks or with a casserole and rolls.
This recipe came from a neighbor, and I adapted it to my family's tastes. It's a nice special salad to serve anytimeand, with fresh spinach from the garden, it's great for summer picnics!
I've long enjoyed cooking...ever since my mother put me in charge of my first Sunday roast when I was 12.
You'll find that this dish is very versatilemore special than everyday but easy enough to make anytime.
Sweet potatoes aren't as popular here in New England as in some parts of the country. I had a friend from Maryland many years ago, however, and we enjoyed swapping recipes. This one's a combination of hers and one I already had in my file.
This recipe is one of my favorite ways to eat blueberries. That delicious fruit is just one of the important crops grown here in the fertile Willamette Valley. They're grown for commercial use, but we usually pick about 60 pounds each summer for pies and other dishes.
This crowd-pleaser is like a German potato salad made with colorful beans. My mom's been preparing this salad for yearsit's so simple to create and great to take to church suppers.
