Growing up my mom always made a salad of some sort with our meals. I have gotten away from mom's delicious salads but I am bringing them back to the table. They weren't fancy or difficult to make but were healthy....
One of my favorites was chopped celery and apple; mixed with mayo, a sprinkle of sugar. I made this one recently and was asked by my husband, "Is this supposed to be good"....how would you answer that? Of course I replied, "no, it's supposed to be awful, but I like it" He actually ate it and liked it. It's just hard to get him to try anything that isn't meat and potatoes/ha
Next on my list to make is shredded carrots, raisins, mixed with mayo and yes you guessed it, a sprinkle of sugar. I probably will make a small bowl of this one, because I'm thinking it will be all mine.
Sometimes it was a lettuce leaf with a slice of pineapple or a half pear, with cottage cheese or shredded cheddar! Simple again and tasty.
My all time favorite salad that mom made was lovingly named by me....Sour Salad! I would request this one often.
Chop or shred cabbage, add chopped onion
Cover with vinegar and maybe a little water.
Salt, pepper....and wait. It gets better the longer you have it. Oh sour salad is so good with fresh vegetables!
I have recently heard so much about egg salad that for the first time in my life...I just made a bowl. It looks like a bowl of mashed up deviled eggs.....which means I will love it. Looking forward to luch today.
What salads are on your table? Inquiring minds would love to know.
Have a good day all.
