Okay everyone, this one is especially for Carole!  Let's see if we can get this idea going again...going through this book chapter by chapter, month by month.  We we all so enthused at the outset, let's try again.  Come on now, there's only a few days left in February so let's make some salads!!

I am off to peruse the chapter....

Made the Shrimp Salad on Avocado Half Shells, yum!!  I made it a second time with shrimp instead of salmon, and a dressing made of mayo, ketchup, paprika, garlic powder and pepper.  Double yum!

Hi Carole!  And, yum, that sounds delish.

I am going to try the Cool Corn Salad on page 291, and, if there's time also the Sunkist Onion and Orange Salad on page 257.  Both sound tasty to me right now.

Anybody else cookin' the last few days of this short month?

Well, 2 days late (today is March 2nd) but today was salad making day for me.  I made both the Cool Corn Salad (291) and the Sunkist Orange and Onion Salad (257).  They are very different from each other, both refreshing and not bad.  I would probably make both again. It's nice knowing I have 3 salads in the fridge to choose from--as I struggle away from rice, pasta and bread in my attempt to eat healthier.  These salads have almost nothing processed in them.  (The third salad by the way is my own creation of shredded carrot, snipped prune and mayo....sounds horrible but it is so so so good, a nice side dish).

Anyway, any other salad makers out there?

Hey, that's OK.   Actually, my favorite salad wasn't in the book.  I use fresh spinach with romaine lettuce and add chopped tomatoes, green onions, dried cranberries, sunflower seeds and parmesean cheese, then make a dressing with olive oil and cranberry vinegar.  Yum!

Orange and onion sounds terrible! It really worked out alright? What else is in there?

Barb, do you have the book?  The recipe is on page 257.  I liked it because it was different, and sounded odd to me, but I was curious.  I used a mild onion and big juicy oranges.  It also has oregano, salt & pepper, oil, oj, lemon juice and black olives.  Served over lettuce.  It's unusual but refreshing (I had mine ice cold from the fridge).

True, it's a recipe I might never have tried if we hadn't been going through the book.  It's nice to try and discover new things.
