Summer Salads

For the dog days of summer. These very tasty, wonderfully easy-to-make salads are terrific on their own, as side dishes or for rounding out your picnic basket.

    Chicken Salad

    I like this a lot better than the standard deli chicken salad (which does have an appeal of its own). Serve as an open-faced sandwich on grilled sourdough.

  • Avocado & Crab with Marie Rose Sauce

    Avocado & Crab with Marie Rose Sauce

    Admittedly kitschy, but so delicious. Crab and avocado is a wonderful combination, a bit luxurious but worth it for a special meal. Marie Rose Sauce is very similar to Russian dressing.

    My dear friend, Lee, made this recently and served it with a chicken wrap—it made for a great summer lunch, full of crunch and flavor.

    Cold Soba Noodle Salad
