This uses light mayonnaise and horseradish for a little extra zing. I'm guessing on the serving size, but I think it's about half a cup.
This is a great meal idea, lunch or dinner. It is full of flavor and very satisfying.

This is just a very basic chicken salad for topping off greens or slapping between a couple slices of bread. It's a basic recipe which, in the past, I've done with much more mayo - the milk thins out the mayo and helps spread the flavor out in this variation. Adding dried cranberries or chopped nuts makes it even better, but doing that, one should remove the relish and add a little more milk (maybe up it to 3 tablespoons of milk). This is a -big- recipe because it keeps for many days in a sealed container.
This is a very versatile recipe with substitutions that can make the cookies tastier or healthier, depending on the ingredients. The ingredients in the recipe are, in my opinion, the best combination of taste and nutrition. They can certainly be healthier or tastier, but that's up to you. I've tried many of the alternative ingredients and think they all work well. Enjoy!
This is my family's favorite summer salad and a cool addition to any meal, or have it all by it's self for a nice snack
A lighter version of traditional macaroni salad.
This is a very low carb, easy, tasty sandwich stuffer. NOT low fat, so please don't comment about that - we low carbers do not avoid fat, we embrace it! :-) Try it on my recipe (listed on spark) for flax sandwich rolls with lettuce, tomato, and a slice of onion. Enjoy and please comment if you make it!
Fabulous taste and a great way to use left over chicken breast. Low fat - low carbs - low calories - low sodium and a great pork alternative - What more could you ask for?!
Perfect for summer! Refreshing and healthy! Low fat cream cheese mixed with chives or green onions topped with thinly sliced cucumbers in between two slices of light wheat bread.
Tastes so good during the summer heat!
it is crunchy ha ha!
This is a recipe modified from something I invented a long time ago, back when I did survival training. The original "recipe" was squirrel meat, browned on hot rocks, along with cattail roots, wild-grown carrots (probably an old farm), one mint leaf, some wild spices, and water. I'm sure there was some ash and flies in there somewhere; that's what you get when you make stew on rocks and an uncovered metal container over an open fire. Don't worry; this recipe doesn't contain anything gross.
SparkPeople doesn't have mint, cattail roots, or squirrel as ingredients. Since most of you don't live near wetlands with cattails and you can't buy squirrel meat anyway, I substituted a parsnip and a large (3/4 pound) potato for the cattails and beef chuck for the squirrel. You can use any meat you like. I've seen goat, lamb, and other red meats in stores; go wild!
Please comment, including how many servings you get (I guess-timated four cup-plus servings) and how well it tastes with different combinations of meat and spices. It isn't for everyone, but many will like it.
You can use this as a salad or appetizer. It makes 16 appetizer servings with corn chips, or 8-10 side dish servings. It gets rave reviews at picnics!
