Salad Recipes


1 cup oil***several shakes of the paprika bottle

1/4 cup vinegar***salt and pepper

1/4 cup fresh lemon juice***1 large onion, grated fine

1 cup sugar

Beat all together and refrigerate in covered container.


1 large head lettuce

1 package frozen petite green peas

1 green pepper, diced

1 cup chopped celery

1/2 cup chopped scallions, (green onions)

1/2 pound bacon cooked crisp and crumbled

1 medium size package mild grated Cheddar Cheese


1/2 pint mayonnaise***1/2 pint sour cream***2 tablespoon sugar

Tear up washed and dried lettuce into large bowl (small punch bowl works fine).

Add the remainder of the ingredients 1 by 1 in order given, in layers.

Mix the dressing then spoon it over the top of the salad. Try to make a seal by covering all of the areas clear up to the bowl. Put into refrigerator over night or at least 8 hours and cover with plastic wrap.


1 can yellow wax beans***2/3 cup sugar

1 can green beans***2/3 cup vinegar

1 can kidney beans***1/3 cup salad oil

1 can garbonzo beans***1 teaspoon salt

1/2 green pepper chopped***1/2 teaspoon celery salt

1 package salad roni***2 small cans sliced black olives, drained

2 bunches green onions (scallions) chopped

salt and pepper to taste


Cook salad roni al dente, drain and then rinse in cool water and drain again. Add chopped onion and olives to the macaroni in a serving bowl. Add enough mayonnaise to your preference and salt and pepper to taste. This is real good warm or cold.


5 pounds potatoes (I like Russets)***salt and pepper to taste

1 bunch celery, chopped fine***2 tablespoons minced dried onion

1 1/2 dozen hard boiled eggs***3 tablespoons prepared mustard

2 cup mayonnaise***1 teaspoon celery seed

Cook potatoes with their skins on. Cool and peel and dice. Add the celery that has been washed and cut into finely diced pieces. Add the hard boiled eggs that have their shells taken off, quartered then sliced. Mix the dry onion flakes, mustard, mayonnaise together and the celery seed and add to the potatoes and eggs. Add salt and pepper to taste. Mix everything together and you can shake some paprika on top for a fancy look. Keep covered in refrigerator. Really tastes better the next day when the flavors all marry.


4 Granny Smith apples or good crisp ones***1/2 cup chopped walnuts

1 cup mayonnaise***1/2 cup finely diced celery

tad of lemon juice or orange juice

Peel, core and slice the apples in small hunks; add the mayonnaise, chopped celery and walnuts. Mix together. Store covered in the refrigerator
