Incredible! 5.0/5
(2 ratings)

This makes a good, creamy salad dressing with a real kick. Without the peppers, this makes a great base for any very low calorie salad dressing. You will not be disapointed if you use real Greek Yogurt; there is no substitute. The amount of Chipotle pepper I add to this gives it a very substantial kick. I like it this way, you may want to experiment with less at first. I use the same base for a creamy caesar dressing for my wife, leaving out the chipotle pepper and adding more garlic and 2 tsp of Worcester sauce. It's great fresh, but even better after it sits in the fridge a day or so letting the flavors meld.

I listed this as making 4 servings, but it is so lite and low in everything you can indulge yourself. I encourage you to have fun with this recipe and let me know of any other variences you come up with. mailbox@tmaine.com

Spinach and Tomato Pasta Salad
Very Good 4.1/5
(146 ratings)

Most pasta salads are heavy on the pasta and light on everything else. This version, which can be served warm or cold, includes a hefty portion of vegetables--both spinach and tomatoes.

Very easy and impressive recipe with or without cherries. I make it both ways. This makes alot of food, and its very refreshing. Great to have around for a snack or the side to a lunchtime sandwich, and can even satisfy a mild sweet tooth. This is a must try!

Oh Boy, Salad!
Very Good 4.4/5
(153 ratings)

This was my great-grandfather's favorite salad. He didn't like lettuce, so when he saw this salad coming out, he always said, "Oh boy, salad!" thus the name.

The vegetables can marinate for a couple of hours, so all you'll have to do at party time is arrange them on a platter and top with olives and cheese. Immediately place the prepared vegetables in the marinade so they won't discolor. Be sure to use fresh mozzarella, which comes packed in water and is usually found with the specialty cheeses. Coarsely chop leftovers and toss with pasta for a cold salad.
