My sister-in-law, Becky Hurt gave me most of my GREAT salad recipes -- here's one!!
1/2 C. White Sugar
Cook until thick, stiring constantly.
Remove from heat & add:
Layer sliced bananas, sauce and nuts.
Doris Remley's "BROCCOLI - RAISIN SALAD"
If you ever ate one of those absolutely amazing Doris Remley luncheons you probably had this salad. She wouldn't give it to me until she retired then she remembered it and I didn't because I would jokingly ask her for it every time I saw her at a meal or about town. She was one wonderful gal! Thanks Doris & RIP
1 large Broccoli Head
Cut up fine, mix together and add the dressing and stir well
Dressing: 1 Cup Mayonnaise (I use Miracle Whip or Mayo - either one) 1/3 C. Sugar and 2 T. Vinegar
Another from Becky Hurt.
In a square pan, make layers in the following order:
1 Head Lettuce, Broken
Toss just before serving!!!
My Aunt Alice (Bazzani) Certain gave me this recipe. It is REALLY good, and usually I don't like vinegary type things.
Let stand 1 hour
1 C. Vinegar
Let cool (or refrigerate) (I keep extra in jars in the refrigerator for the next day)
Pour slaw dressing over drained chopped Cabbage/mango/carrrot mixture, toss and serve.
"FIVE CUP SALAD"
This is one of the EASIEST salads ever. One of our neighbors, when I was a little girl would try out different foods and have me over to play "Tester." This was one of my favorites Zula Pence ever made!
1 C. Coconut, shredded
Mix all ingredients together and let stand for 30 minutes before serving.
For lack of another name, we just call this "Green Salad." It sounds yukky, but it really is VERY GOOD! And, again -- EASY!
1 Can Crushed Pineapple (drained)
Mix together and add Cool Whip.
This one is from my mother -- I can still see her standing at the stove fixin' up her "Pineapple Salad." I have no idea where she got the recipe, but she made it for lots of company dinners and it's a fav of my company, too.
Cook over medium heat until almost thick, then add 4 slices of American Cheese -- cool slightly.
To the crushed pineapple, add:
Mix well -- good warm, cold or on a lettuce leaf.
Have no idea where I got this -- probably from the Jello Package, but I know my four grandsons wouldn't like it if I left it out of "My Favorite Family Recipes," and truth be known, neither would my kids but they're too old to admit they still enjoy playin' with the Jello!!
4 Knox Gelatin
MIX WELL. Let set, cut into finger wide strips (about 3-4 inches long, and 1 inch wide) and separate onto a dish. This should be firm enough to be "finger food".
This is one of my favorite foods, but I just never get around to making it -- I should as it's very good for you :) Betty Dotson, a cousin/genealogy pal makes the BEST Sunshine Salad EVER !!
1 C. Boiling Water ---
Makes 6-8 servings
The very first place other than a library I went to for researching was Kathryn Hallett's to go through one of our families together. She fixed me lunch and this was the salad. Wasn't sure I'd like it but it's one of my all-time favs.
Dressing: 1 1/4 C. Sugar (I use splenda)
Two, 10-oz pkg frozen mixed vegetables. Cook according to directions
on pkg - cool and drain.
Great since it's made ahead and ready for company :)
True, everyone makes this but it is a family tradition that when we have a get-together I make this for our son-in-law, Steve and daughter-in-law, Kathy. Especially pretty at Christmas
1 # 2 Can Crushed Pineapple
Mix pineapple and dry pudding. Mix and fold-in the cool whip, add nuts, conconut, marshmallows and chill.
