Cranberry Salad II

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2012
I took this to a postponed Thanksgiving yesterday. We had to travel nearly 100 miles, but it survived it beautifully. I used about 3/4 cup Sucralose(Safeway's fake sugar), three Clementines for the one orange, both walnuts and an apple, and a dark jello. I didn't have lemon, so I added about two tablespoons of lime juice. As others suggested, I cut down a lot on the water, and used the reserved pineapple juice as part of it. It was crunchy(celery, nuts, and apple) and delicious--not too sweet. It was photogenic, but I forgot to do that! We had so many delicious things that I think someone must have taken a picture. I left the leftovers with the hostess, but my daughter and I like it a lot, so I'm going to make us another one.

Cranberry and Cilantro Quinoa Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2011
I've made this twice in the past week. It is very tasty and healthy. I think there are endless possibilities for adding other vegetables. (Corn, peas, etc.) I cheated and used a wonderful mix of chopped vegetables that Trader Joe's sells. I put the lime juice in a small container with minced garlic and a little olive oil and shook it well. I loved that there is no real dressing on this salad. It might be a little dry, as the quinoa seems to absorb the moisture. It looks lovely on a plate--some people have never met quinoa, so it's good for them to learn about it! (I cooked the quinoa in chicken stock the first time, not the second. Both were fine.) It's filling and good for you!

Christmas Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2010
I made this for Christmas dinner. It was beautiful and very Christmasy. I made all the pieces really small, so mine didn't look at all like the picture on the post. (Sorry I didn't take a picture.) I followed the recipe almost exactly, except I added two cans of chopped water chestnuts. I'm on a healthy eating binge, so I lightened the dressing by mixing about a quarter cup of lite mayo with enough Brianna's (no-fat) Santa Fe Blend dressing to make about 1 1/2 cups total. I used about half of that. The dressing has red peppers in it, so it was perfect. Next time I think I will just use that dressing and leave out the mayo. The salad was tasty, crunchy, beautiful, and mostly (bacon)healthy!

Summer Corn Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2008
I brought this to a picnic and everyone enjoyed it and asked for the recipe. Someone brought some Mexican beef to put in a tortilla shell and people quickly added this salad as salsa for that! I used a lot of the suggestions for additions to the salad. I'll make it again.
