Family Favorites Salad and

Salad Dressing Recipes

  • Basic Dressing with Variations photo
  • Bleu Cheese Dressing photo — Homemade bleu cheese dressing is infinitely better than store-bought. This creamy dressing is at its best when tossed with crisp romaine or iceberg lettuce. Use it as a dip for raw carrot sticks, celery sticks, and broccoli. It's also great for dipping wings!
  • Circus Peanut Salad photo
  • Cranberry Whip photo — This is another of my Mom's favorite recipes. It was ALWAYS on her table at Thanksgiving and Christmas.
  • Farmer's Hash — I like to make this salad the day before serving to allow all the flavors to blend. Just add however much you like of each. I prefer it well-peppered and salted.
  • Five-Cup Fruit Salad — This has been a quick and easy favorite in our family for years. For special occasions we use colored miniature marshmallows.
  • Holiday Ambrosia photo
  • Linda’s Exotic Chicken Salad photo — This is my personal recipe which was submitted to Oregon Fruit for one of their contests many years ago. I won a set of four beautiful coffee mugs! This recipe is still featured on their website.
