The other day when I was at the vacation house, I noticed something quite disturbing. Well that's an exaggeration I guess, but for someone who loves to entertain, it was a shock. I went to make a salad in my favorite red salad serving bowl and realized it had 2 gigantic cracks! I added it to the trash and turned to my back-up bowl: a wooden, African inspired bowl only to remember that the matching giraffe headed serving tongs were broken at my last dinner party. You know what this means readers... I am in desperate need of a new salad serving bowl and I want you to help me find it. Glass, plastic, wood it doesn't matter, it just has to be chic, stylish, and cool. A salad bowl that will have guests asking me, PartySugar, what a fabulous salad bowl, where on earth did you find it?? Save the bowls in the Yum Market on TeamSugar with the keyword Salad Serving Bowl. Looking forward to seeing your finds!

Although it may not technically be American, I consider Caesar salad to be typical American cuisine. It's by far the most popular salad in the United States and is served everywhere from fast food chains to high-end restaurants.

Satisfying and delicious, every home cook should have a fabulous Caesar recipe in their repertoire. Novice cooks can mix one quickly by jazzing up plain mayonnaise and experienced foodies can shine by making homemade parmesan croutons. Take your pick: find the recipe that suits your culinary level and time frame, just read more
An Italian bread salad traditionally made with onions, tomatoes, basil, vinegar, and olive oil. Chunks of day old bread are best for making this salad as it will soak up the vinaigrette best. Variations on the theme include cucumbers, anchovies, peppers, and more.
I prefer to make homemade dressings and vinaigrettes because it allows me to control the quality of the ingredients. In this scrumptious dinner, the ingredients are tossed lightly with a blitzed mixture of ginger, mustard, and vinegar. With the help of a food processor, blender, or immersion blender, making a dressing only takes minutes. Tonight's Asian inspired salad is a delicious combination of sautéed shrimp, sweet peppers, and crunchy jimaca. It's healthy, quick, and divinely delicious - get the recipe just read more
In preparing for salad week, I came across these branch salad servers. The motif draws from an old-fashioned design, and yet manages to stay modern. However, there's something about them that I just don't like, they're almost too rustic. Or maybe it's because they come across as weapon-y? What do you think? Love 'em or hate 'em?
When we decided to declare this week salad week, I knew that the first happy hour would have to be the quintessential Bloody Mary. In a way the Bloody Mary is like a liquid salad - celery, onions, tomatoes - only with alcohol in it. I know that a lot of people dislike the way they taste, however there is something about the savory flavor that keeps me coming back for more. To whip up your own alcoholic salad, read more
Whether they're from your own garden, purchased at the grocery store, or picked from a farmers' market stall, tomatoes are summer's most beloved
vegetable fruit. When they are in season, nothing beats enjoying the simple tomato in all its fleshy, red, ripe glory. When choosing tomatoes look for locally grown, fragrant, heavy, tomatoes with skin that yields slightly to pressure. Bright colored ones are best flavored. It's best to store tomatoes at room temperature rather than in the fridge because the harsh coldness will affect the taste of the fruit. When using a recipe that calls for a certain type of tomato refer to this helpful glossary. read more
