These sound great, Codyman! Especially the Broccoli Salad. I've made one similar using Peas ( just thaw out the frozen ones - no need to cook them) - it has bacon, sunflower seeds, Miracle Whip - and I throw in a handful of Craisins, too.
Can't wait to try your broccoli salad [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/wink.gif[/img]

hmm the next time I make Broccoli salad I might throw in some Craisins!
Tomorrow, I am making the Layered Spinach Salad for dinner at my sisters. Tonight we are having Baby Spinach with cucumbers, celery, mushrooms and grilled chicken. Baby Spinach is my favourite!!

I know this salad isn't as creative or fancy, but right now my husband and I are addicted to making/eating the following salad:
Lettuce, shredded cheeze, red onions, and chicken tenders (fried or grilled. We top it off with a dressing mixture of ranch and honey french (yes, mix the two together). Oh and we also top it off with fritos (instead of croutons).
It's kinda like a southwestern, chicken taco salad..... love it....

It was easier to re-raise than to search my recipe books for these recipes.
Will add another salad recipe after my daughter's First Communion Celebration tomorrow (or perhaps after my nephews Confirmation on sunday). We will be eating alot of salads this weekend!!

I made the strawberry spinach salad the other night and it was a hit.
I would double the cucumber, half the onion, and I used olive oil.
Where do you find sunflower seeds that do not have the risk of x-contamination?
