Food for the Fourth ~ Salads

Welcome to Day 2 of my Food for the Fourth series, today is all about Salads!

Yesterday, I shared my Main Dishes, Chicken Phillies, All-American Burgers and Chicken Kebabs. Yum!


This Deli Style Pasta Salad is a huge hit at our house. It’s not only great as a Side dish, but also when it gets super hot during the Summer, I often serve it as a Main Dish. It’s very versatile, you can add any vegetables or meat that you like.

I know…Chinese Chicken Salad on the Fourth of July? But my family loves this salad, and everytime I make it to share at a cookout or gathering, it disappears!

I honestly don’t have a great recipe for a Potato Salad. I usually just kind of throw it together with potatoes, eggs and mayo. But this New Potato Summer Salad from Kraft looks great! I’m anxious to give it a try, my family loves those little new potatoes.

Do you have a favorite Salad recipe? Share it with us!

  5. Those all look very tasty, Liz! My family and everyone else loves this great salad I make with spinach, romaine, cole slaw mix, cranberries, almonds, and poppyseed dressing. http://glutenfreeeasily.com/a-little-crunch-of-cabbage/

    And, I just made bruschetta appetizers … basically salad on a cucumber slice. 😉 http://glutenfreeeasily.com/chickpea-garbanzo-bruschetta/

    However, we get our families to indulge in green food is a good thing! Hope you have a wonderful 4th! Can’t believe it’s upon us …


  6. I am a sucker for salads…I could eat yummy salads like this all day long. I make a Greek pasta salad with orzo that I adore.
