    Waldorf Salad

    Waldorf Salad is such a unique recipe that anyone can put their own spin on and make it so different than anyone else. Waldorf salad has some basic ingredients in it. Apples, walnuts and mayonnaise are the ones I use for my potluck Waldorf salad. I add celery, nutmeg. cinnamon and a dash of ginger too. I use a firm apple such as Braeburns since I like a rather crisp and not a sweet or sour apple taste to my Waldorf salad. Adding anything else is up to you.You can substitute your spread you prefer for mayonnaise. Let it sit overnight to get the flavors in the entire Waldorf salad for the potluck time.

    Carrot Raisin Salad

    Simply this is a salad that most people do not think to bring to a potluck. Carrot and raisins salad is refreshing and almost everyone likes the contents. Grating the carrots can be done in the food processor to make the chore easier. Soaking the raisins if they are firm or too small can really be a good step to do. Soak them in milk or water overnight if you want plump raisins. Add a little cinnamon a touch of nutmeg and mayonnaise. Mix the salad in advance and refrigerate overnight to get the flavors all through all the carrots. Cover before putting in refrigerator and after if there are leftovers.

    Macaroni Salad

    Macaroni salad is one of the most sought after dishes at a potluck or picnic. You can make the salad in advance so you have the time you need to spend somewhere else. Cook the macaroni noodles well and test them before your cooking time is ended. You want the macaroni to be soft and not crunchy. After the macaroni noodles are fully cooked, drain them in a colander. Nothing is worse than watery macaroni salad. Add all your pepper, parsley flakes and garlic powder if you like. Onions and other seasoning is according to your taste. Put in the mayonnaise last and put covered in refrigerator overnight. This blends he flavors for your macaroni salad.

    Potato Salad

    Potato salad is as various as the kinds of potatoes you choose to use. Yukon Gold, red, white and yellow potatoes are the ones most often used in potato salad. Cook your potatoes until just barely tender. Do not overcook or you will have potato mush. Mix your mayonnaise or miracle spread in a separate bowl with all the other ingredients. I use a boiled egg for a small potato salad, so use more for a larger potato potluck salad. I use parsley flakes, finely chopped fresh onion and pepper with a touch of garlic powder. Not garlic salt, but Use garlic powder. At the end when potatoes are cooled gently stir in mayonnaise and spices. Always keep refrigerated after making potato salad.

    Broccoli

    Broccoli salads are so popular at potlucks, So many variations can be made that no one will probably have the identical broccoli salad that you made. I do not cook my broccoli for my broccoli salad. I wash it, pat it dry, separate the flowers from the stalks and break them apart into small pieces. Sometimes I even cut the broccoli with a knife if I want to. I add finely chopped onion, Italian dressing and let it stand at room temperature for several hours. I then add chickpeas or beans and some finely chopped pickles. I like to refrigerate it overnight before serving at a potluck.
