One of my visitors, Louise Chowanski mentioned very special, unique sweet and tart coleslaw she finds in a local supermarket deli section. Since Louise is a B&B hostess with the mostess (she knows a great recipe when she sees one), she generously shared with me the basic ingredients and amounts and invited me to fiddle. I did. This is a sweet and tangy coleslaw, chock full of apples, toasted almonds, and a hint of maple syrup and orange. It is perfect with BBQ chicken or ribs or alongside grilled salmon. It is so unique it becomes an instant classic. You can use lite sour cream and mayonnaise.

Chicken Caesar salad, done right, makes a lot of sense. Unfortunately, it is often served with cold, flavourless, strips of chicken breast, gloppy insipid dressing, and rumour of garlic. But just follow this recipe and pay attention to detail in this combination and you will have a stellar salad that hits all the right notes. Fresh Parmesan is a must always! This is restaurant food, done right, at the home bistro.
This is lovely to look at and handy, as it is made ahead (up to three days). It is refreshing and unique, and easy enough to serve a crowd. If you want to avoid the eggs, simply leave them out. Canned or jarred prepared beets, as well as roasted red peppers are two ways to speed up the preparation of this salad. A sweet and sour version is another variation: chopped cabbage, lettuce, apples, pears, raisins, and carrots would be the layers. You also vary it in with canned black beans and crushed tacos - almost any variety of layered things would work. The trick with this is finely chopped everything so the final result is a pretty, marinated salad.
A nice French tang in a classic vinaigrette. I crush the garlic with a mortar and pestle and use the mortar (bowl) as the vinaigrette bowl. Another neat way to make quick and fresh vinaigrette is to shake it all in a small Mason jar. What's leftover, refrigerate for more salad days ahead. Use this to marinate lamb chops but it's main purpose is to toss with green salads of any description.

The classic pasta salad for any season. Tri colored pasta makes it interesting but bowtows is another way to go.
