1. Family House Salad (Parve):
My family has decided that their favorite salad contains lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, bell pepper, corn and hard-boiled eggs. When they are in an especially fun mood, they might garnish it with raisins or roasted sunflower seeds. I hope your family will enjoy this Family House Salad too.
2. Lettuce, Mandarin Orange, Sugared Almond Salad (Parve):
Paula Weinstein and Julie Remer's Sugared Almond Salad is the all-time favorite salad of my family and friends. Whenever we are invited to a potluck, I am asked to bring this salad. For a Sabbath or holiday meal, this can be served as an appetizer. Given the sugar content in the dressing, this salad isn't the healthiest one you can serve, but this salad's great taste simply can't be topped.
3. Spinach Strawberry Salad with Poppy Seed Dressing (Parve):
This Spinach Strawberry Salad with Poppy Seed Dressing is a refreshing summer salad. For a more festive salad, add either sliced purple onion or slivered almonds.
4. Greek Salad (Dairy):
Greek Salad, with its combination of salty black olives and feta cheese, makes a wonderful summer meal. Unlike many other Greek Salad recipes, this Greek Salad recipe includes lettuce. Also, this Greek Salad recipe suggests using thyme or zaatar instead of oregano for a slightly milder and special touch.
5. Left-over Chicken Salad (Meat):
What to do with the left-over roast chicken from Shabbat? Make Chicken Salad. Cut it up, add it to a salad of lettuce, tomato, cucumber and humus sticks. Toss the salad with Balsamic-Honey Salad dressing. And you've created a great Sunday lunch.
6. Kosher Chef's Salad (Meat):
The classic Chef's Salad recipe, which includes meat and cheese, is not kosher. Fortunately Susie Fishbein has created a kosher recipe for Chef's Salad. Her Kosher Chef's Salad tastes wonderful, and it makes the perfect appetizer for a Sabbath meal. Mix the salad right before the meal and serve portions on individual plates. Easy and delicious!
7. Festive Israeli Salad (Parve):
Whether eating in Israel in a restaurant or in someone's home, you are likely to find some version of this Festive Israeli Salad. The key to the salad's success is to finely dice the vegetables.
8. Colorful Corn Salad (Parve):
When we have guests over in the summer, I like to put a variety of fresh salads on the table. This Corn Salad is one of my favorite salads to serve because it is colorful, delicious, and easy to make. This salad is also perfect for summer cookouts or picnics because it is parve and travels well.
9. Kids' Favorite Cucumber Salad (Parve):
This is the only salad my kids request. Simply wash cucumbers, slice (for thin, even slices a food processor is recommended), add spices, and refrigerate. Your family will enjoy, especially during the hot summer months, this sweet Cucumber Salad all week long.
10. Favorite Cabbage Salads:
I have 3 favorite cabbage salad recipes. This Simple Cole Slaw goes nicely with baked fish. When I want to serve a more festive cabbage recipe, especially when entertaining a crowd, I turn to this Crunchy Cabbage Salad. Made with white cabbage, almonds, sesame seeds and ramen noodles, this delicious salad is flavored with olive oil, vinegar, sugar and soy sauce. When I prefer red cabbage, I prepare this delicious Crunchy Red Cabbage Salad.
