If you want something without a lot of prep work, grab a couple of bags of lettuce-mix salad and add manadarin oranges, dried cherries and sliced almonds. Serve with raspberry viniagrette dressing.

Ooh sounds simple enough even for me not to screw up :lol:

Thanks gals ;)

It looks fancy when it's all put together and most people love the trend of mixing fruit with salad. You can always add strawberries for some color... and I've added granny smith apples too. ... and chicken if I'm making a meal for myself. Enjoy!

Here are a couple that I have always found very well-liked:

Layer Salad

1 medium head lettuce (in 1/2" chunks)

Place in bottom of plastic container

Mix together and layer over lettuce:

1 c. coarsely chopped celery

1 c. diced green pepper

Cook 1 pkg. frozen peas 5 minutes. Drain and cool and layer over the above.

Mix 1 1/2 c. mayo/salad dressing of choice with 2 T. sugar. Spread over top of peas (entire top of above).

Fry 8 or 10 slices thin bacon until crisp. Cool and sprinkle over salad dressing (Bacon Bits would work as well).

Top all with 2 c. shredded cheese (mild or your choice).

Cover tightly and put in fridge at least 4 hours or overnight. Mix together just before serving.

Three-Bean Salad

1 can French-cut or "regular" green beans

1 can yellow wax beans

1 can red kidney beans

1/2 c. minced green pepper

1/2 c. minced onion

1/2 c. salad oil

1/2 c. cider vinegar

3/4 c. granulated sugar

1 t. salt

1/2 t. pepper

Drain beans; place in bowl. Add green pepper and onion. Mix oil and vinegar with sugar, salt, pepper. Pour over bean mixture; toss. Refrigerate, covered, til served. Makes 10 servings.

Oh, just remembered another one :P I've never made it but a co-worker used to bring this in and it is VERY good, too.

Fumi-Fumi Salad

8 T. slivered/sliced almonds

8 oz. sunflower seeds

2 T. butter/margarine

1 medium head cabbage, shredded, or 32 oz. bag cole slaw mix

1 bunch green onions, diced

2 (3-oz) pkgs. Ramen oriental noodles, crushed (unflavored)

Dressing:

1 c. rice vinegar

1 c. sugar

1/2 c. sunflower oil

1/4 c. water

Lightly brown almonds and sunflower seeds in butter in skillet (can use sunflower meats). Mix cabbage, onions and oriental noodles in large bowl. Add almonds and sunflower seeds/meats. Mix well. For dressing: using a blender or shaker jar, mix dressing ingredients well and pour over cabbage mixture and toss to coat. Refrigerate.

Shred fresh basil leaves, cut roma tomatoes into chunks, cut mozzarella into chunks.....combine in bowl.

No dressing needed. The basil is balanced nicely with the tomatoes and cheese.

Tastes wonderful, and is something people don't normally bring to a potluck. And as a bonus it smells incredible!

This sounds pretty good. Not even a tiny bit of olive oil allowed? :unsure:
