A roasted beet salad would be nice. I have a recipe for it posted under the salad forum

This is good and is best made the day before. No exact recipe.

Cauliflower coarsely diced
broccoli coarsely diced
ripe olives sliced or coarsely chopped
onions diced (opt)
Zesty Italian dressing
Marinate over night or for several hours

This would be great! Maybe I'll make it too. Fennel, mushroom, celery root and parmesean reggiano salad. Yum

IC, that looks delicious to me, but I'd never get my family to eat beets. Don't know why...they are a delicious, sweet, earthy tasting vegetable. I used to grow them in my garden, and I loved working with them. I can only imagine how delicious they are roasted.

How about a good old Waldorf salad? Maybe substitute the raisins with some dried cranberries or "Craisins".

Lee

Waldorf Salad Recipe
4 C. chopped apples with skins
2 lemons, juiced
1/2 C. chopped celery
1/2 C. chopped walnuts
1/2 C. raisins
1/2 C. seedless grapes, halved
1 C. heavy cream, whipped with 2 T. sugar
1/2 C. mayonnaise

Chop apples and coat with lemon juice. Add chopped celery, walnuts, raisins and grapes to a large bowl.

Blend whip cream and mayonnaise together. Add to salad and stir to coat well. Chill until time to serve.

Serves 8 to 10
