A challenge for me...I need a recipe for a cold salad (not green salad) to serve as a side for hot turkey and cheese sandwiches. I dislike pasta salad, cole slaw, broccoli salad, etc., (I think it's the mayo) so I don't know what to make! Suggestions for things "everyone" loves? Thanks.

Anything! I probably won't eat it anyway...I just want to make something the rest of them will enjoy.

Cayenne pepper provides the "fire " in this salad of tomatoes, peppers and onions marinated in a cooked dressing. Sliced cucumbers provide the "ice " as they are tossed into the salad just before serving.

A great, fresh-tasting picnic salad, it combines avocados, cucumbers, garlic, and green onions with chopped cilantro and the bright flavors of lemon and lime juice.

When I think turkey, I think avocados! This salad is great or you could do tomato and avocado salad with green onions and a balsamic dressing or italian dressing.

Some sort of tomato or greek salad would make sense...sort of tomato, red onion, black olive, feta cheese, radish shreds, Balsamic vinegar and EVOO, shredded garlic, fresh basil and rosemary and relatively big chunks of cucumber spears, and your tomato's were bigger than cherry size but small enough to split... and maybe some sweet green peppers, or something like that? Otherwise you are sort of back to the Caesar Salad "green" thing...

Cranberry Waldorf

I make this salad all year long, but it is especially great for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Just freeze a few bags of cranberries to use at a later date. I know this will become a tradition to anyone who tries it, it's delicious! Garnish with frosted cranberries and mint leaves, if desired. For frosted cranberries, wet cranberries with water, and roll in sugar.

I might be way off with this one...but it's different and I would think it would be good with turkey....

I bet it would be good, but there's already fruit on the menu.
