Dandelion Salad

Source:More-with-Less Cookbook
Date tried:November 9, 2017
Yield: 4-6 servings
Time needed: 30 minutes

I made very little of this as I was quite unsure whether I would like it. I am not fond of cooked salad dressing and was a little suspicious that dandelion leaves would be quite bitter. It was better than I expected though. Perhaps bacon improves everything.

Teriyaki Salad

Time needed:30 minutes + time to chill

This is a fine, satisfying salad, not to be missed. Not difficult to make either. Straightforward chopped vegetables in a simple vinaigrette dressing. On a hot summer day make this in the cool of the morning and pull out of the fridge for a ready-to-eat supper.

Sweet and Spicy Couscous Salad

Source: May All Be Fed: Diet for a New World
Made: October 10, 2013
Yield: 3-4 servings as a main dish; 6-8 as a side dish
Time to make: 10 minutes assembly + at least 1 hour to chill.

This is a lovely tabouli-style salad and great as a main dish. I intended to include the almond garnish, but at the last minute forgot to add them.  But since I will certainly be making this salad again, that will be a treat for another day.

Shredded Potato & Zucchini Salad

Date tried: June 2/17
Yield: 4 servings
Time needed: Quick to put together but allow and hour or two to chill

Prior preparation needed,
Peel, cook and shred potatoes

I found this a unique salad. In all my years of making potato salad, I had never thought of shredding them instead of chopping them into cubes. But it works well with the shredded zucchini. The dressing (mayonnaise + French dressing) accounts for most of the flavour.
