I like coleslaw with just about everything. This year I veered from the traditional and did a chop! Nice! Easy! Just don’t over process; you’ll end up with a drink instead! Enjoy yourself either way! Steve says this tastes and textures like a fine grind chicken salad. He’s right; it does!
Bake up a bunch of potatoes, refrigerate, then make individual potato salads as you want them. This way, the dressing and ingredients don’t get watered down and old-tasting. It’s fresh each time. Thick Lime Cream Sauce is perfect for a mayonnaise substitute. Use your leftover pickle juices to thin the sauce when stirring the salad!
Yes it’s African. What’s the matter with that? Hey, I researched it after the fact of naming it African. Africans eat dates, pineapples and bananas – there’s a big history there. That’s all the proof I need, that Africans don’t require animals in their diet. They just think they do. It’s a status symbol. Like with everybody. It’s all about status.
African Fruit Salad is one of the most delicious, easy to make and unique fruit salads of all time! Made with precision! And, it holds up well. And, you now have a way to keep your bananas from discoloring in the salad!

When the lights went out at Kirby Manor and I had no electricity, I made this beautiful salad instead, thus the name!
The Greeks know more than any other culture the taste of the ‘game’ (the lamb) in the Kalamata olive. Pungent sweet, salty, acrid, fatty, chewy and tender at the same time. It’s all there – in a plant.
Red and green grapes, cantaloupe, apple, pecans enveloped in the perfect sauce that brings the lamb so delicately close to the fruit absent the slaughter, that one must call it divine!
