  1. They all look yummy Connie, I wish summer weather would come our way so I could enjoy a salad again. We have had a very cool summer so far it is only 45 out right now. I am wearing long pants and sweatshirts most days. By the way, I moved my blog to WP. The URL didn't change, but for some reason to get my posts you have to delete me and re enter me to get things started. http://creativecaincabin.com/

  6. Connie, I was just thinking that I was running out of good salad recipes! :) What a great roundup! Thanks for sharing at Tasty Tuesdays! This roundup is my Twitter feature of the day today!

  7. Thank you so much for featuring my antipasto salad. I followed this link because I love salads and didn't realize mine would be here...what a pleasant surprise and honor. A few of these salads make me nostalgic. My mom used to fix a version of the Cherry Chiffon that was fondly called Pepto Bismol Salad, not because of it's affects but because of it's appearance. And she usually made the classic jello salad for holidays. : )
