Ideas for a salad...

    I have to bring a salad to a potluck supper tomorrow night.

    I don't feel like surfing the net for recipes. I'm bored with the typical tuna-macaroni salad.

    I don't do hot-spicy and I'm allergic to green peppers. I do not have access to 'exotic' ingredients.

    With those three things in mind, does anyone have any favorite recipes to share?

    Greek pasta salad is always a hit.

    Toms (if you can find some that don't suck)

    Olive oil, lemon juice, red wine vinegar, pepper to taste.

    Easy, colorful and fun.

    As long as it has copious amounts of ranch on it, I will eat any salad. Though a fruit salad with ranch would be pretty gross.

    Garden greens
    Red peppers
    Fresh mushrooms
    Almond slices

    Make it colourful for presentation purposes. Pick any dressing you like ... Maybe a berry vinaigrette? Or peppercorn ranch?

    Romaine lettuce
    Pico de gallo (chopped cilantro, diced red onion and diced tomatoes)
    grilled chicken breast, diced
    Mix all together and add ranch dressing.

    Cilantro is great stuff.

    Ranch dressing has become a pox on this country.

    at home I have a recipe for a cherry tomato-greenbean-redskin potato salad with vermouth vinagrette (tho any one will work).
    I'll send when I get home if you want

    If anyone but Mom had started this thread, I'd have recommended a tossed salad.

    Lots of halved cherry tomatoes.
    Two minced cloves of garlic
    Really good olive oil.
    Mix well.

    Not when there's been assigned dishes to bring. (It's an end-of-the-season sports banquet for one of the Rosebuds.)

    At least those of who know didn't tell me to look in the Lutheran Ladies cook book. No green jello with coleslaw this time around.
