This cookbook was published in 1969 by Favorite Recipes Press. I like to consider it a hidden gem. It may not be recent or popular, but one may learn a whole lot about unheard-of salad recipes. I challenge you to get a copy... You will not be sorry!
In the Variety Meat Salads section, I found a scrumptious recipe for Pepperoni and Onion Salad. Easy with only lettuce, pepperoni, onion, tomatoes, cucumber, salt, vinegar, oil and parmesan with toast! To me, this sounds like a good one for kids or picky eaters!
Continuing, in the same section, is a recipe for Potatoes and Hot Dogs. All it calls for are potatoes, hot dogs, butter, dry onion soup mix, flour, sugar, pepper, water, vinegar and sour cream. Again, kids? Picky?
Then, in the Vegetable Salads Section, I found a good recipe for Overnight Vegetable Salad. Got a potluck? Got a picnic? Having a party? Then, this is the perfect recipe for you! It includes peas, green beans, corn, celery, green pepper, onion, salt, sugar, vinegar, salad oil, water and paprika. Yum. Now everybody will get their veggies!
Another Vegetable Salad would be Green Pea Salad. Peas usually get the backseat in recipes, but not this one. All you need is a big package of frozen peas, onion, cheddar cheese, mayonnaise, mustard and horseradish. Very creamy!
In the Fruit Salads Section, I thought Sour Cream - Fruit Salad seemed like a real stand-out. How do these ingredients sound? Pineapple chunks, cherries, nuts, marshmallows and sour cream... Awww... Heavenly...
So, if you can get a copy of Salads Cookbook, you will not regret it. This review is only a taste.
