HELP! I need a side salad...

And I don't know what to make! Any suggestions and/or recipes would be great! Ham, roast beef and turkey will all be served. Veggies are already handled.....

  • This is a great one!
    Broccoli-Cauliflower Salad

    1 head Broccoli
    1 head Cauliflower
    1 cup pecans
    1/4 cup butter
    1 teaspoon Lawrey’s seasoning salt
    ½ cup Red Onion or green onions
    ½ cup Raisins
    ½ cup sliced black or green Olives
    ½ cup Red Pepper, diced
    ½ lb. Bacon, cooked
    1 cup shredded Cheddar Cheese
    1-1 ½ cups Mayonnaise
    1/4 cup Sugar
    1 Tablespoon Celery Seed
    1 Tablespoon vinegar
    Combine pecans, butter and 1 teaspoon Seasoning salt. Toast in 350 over about 10 minutes or until they become fragrant. Set aside to cool. Combine Mayonnaise, sugar, seasoning salt, celery seed and vinegar in a large bowl. Add rest of ingredients. Mix and chill until serving time.
    Notes: I have also added diced ham to this and it is also good. You can use just broccoli or just cauliflower, and that’s good, too.

  • I second Waldorf Salad but we use craisins instead of raisins.

    Or a tossed salad with vigarett would be good
    Mixed greens
    Purple onion
    red and yellow peppers
    Candied Pecans

    Olive oil
    Balsamic vinegar
    all to taste


    Olive oil
    balsamic vinegar
    all to taste

  • Caesar! They're so yummy, and the dressing is mixed in, so you don't have to worry about running out or someone spilling it.
