Recipes, Part 1

In a recent post, I mentioned a few favorite family recipes. I had a request to post them and so this will be the first of two posts. Below, you will find the recipes for two of my favorite salads. They’re easy to make and great for a potluck. Me? I like to request that my mama make them for my birthday.  🙂



1 large head of cabbage, torn/chopped into small pieces

1 bunch green onions, sliced

2 chicken breasts, cooked and chopped into bite-size pieces

2 Tbsp sesame seeds, toasted

2 Tbsp almonds, toasted

2 pkgs Top Ramen noodles, uncooked and broken into small pieces

1/2 c oil

2 Tbsp vinegar

2 Tbsp sugar

2 Tbsp soy sauce

3/4 tsp salt

-Mix green onions and chicken with cabbage. Mix in noodles, almonds, and sesame seeds.

-Combine oil, vinegar, sugar, soy sauce, and salt in a separate bowl. Add to cabbage mixture just before serving and mix well.



12 oz can whole kernel corn

8 oz can red kidney beans, rinsed

7 oz can ripe olives

1 head of lettuce, chopped/torn into small pieces

1/2 c mayo

1/4 c sliced green onions

cumin to taste (I like lots!)

2 tsp cider vinegar

1/2 tsp onion powder

1/2 tsp chili powder

tabasco to taste (I usually omit.)

-Combine corn, kidney beans, olives, and lettuce.

-In a separate bowl, combine mayo, green onions, cumin, cider vinegar, onion powder, chili powder, and tabasco.

-Add the mayo mixture to the lettuce mixture and toss.


Told you they were simple! Enjoy!!!
