Green Salad with Catalina Dressing

Home / Salads / Green Salad with Catalina Dressing
I would like to thank you all for your words of sympathy regarding our recent loss. With all these things going on around here, unfortunately I didn’t have the chance to follow you as often as I wanted and also didn’t have the time to post about a tag. My fellow blogger Elisabeth from Food and Thrift Finds tagged me to present a course of 5 to 10 dishes for Easter. Sadly, Easter has passed and to be honest we didn’t do anything in particular, since we were in bereavement. Nevertheless, mother’s day is on its way and regardless, I think we don’t need a special occasion to make something special for our loved ones isn’t it? Thanks again Elizabeth for the tagging!
As I was going through my blog, I realized that I haven’t posted a salad lately, nor did I have as many salad recipes as I would like.
This happens not because we do not eat salads. On the contrary, during weekdays we eat only salads for diet purposes. So, the reason I don’t post about salads is that, I eat too many salads and for me it is something very common and usual. Thus, when it comes to blogging, I want to post about the mouthwatering things I cook during the weekends, because only during weekend do we get the chance to taste all these things you see in this blog.
But since I am trying to return to my daily routine here and since I have to post about the dishes I would offer to a celebration I thought that a salad would be a good idea for this post. The dressing for this salad was superb and I made a whole bottle which dressed many of our salads apart from this one. The recipe for this dressing is a copycat from Kraft’s Catalina Salad Dressing and you can find it in cdkitchen. I recommend this to you with closed eyes and it is a dressing that pleases all ages.

I am sending this to Deb’s Kahakai Kitchen for Souper Sundays.
Now regarding the tag I would choose the following dishes for a formal or informal gathering

As an appetizer I would choose the Stuffed Florina Peppers

Or the Kolokithokeftedes

As a salad I would choose either the one posted above or The Cretan Dakos
