Copycat Sunflower Crunch Kale Cabbage Salad

The reason I call this a “copycat” salad is that it mimics my favorite bagged salad which I purchase in the produce section of the market.

However, if I’m totally honest here (and why wouldn’t I be?), my Kudos Kitchen version is even better than that bagged version because I’ve added dried cranberries to the mix, and I’ve also added apple cider (you can use apple juice if needed) to thin the dressing, and for a little touch of extra sweetness.

Sweet & Savory Creamy Chicken Salad with Dried Apricots & Macadamia Nuts

I find that a mix of dark and white meat chicken makes the best-tasting chicken salad. Store-bought rotisserie chicken is what I prefer when making a homemade chicken salad recipe.
When using onions in a non-cooked salad, I enjoy a red onion and think it is the sweetest. You can adjust the amount of red onion in the recipe depending on your taste. Chopped shallots may be used in place of the red onion for a slightly milder onion flavor.

Crowd Pleasing Creamy Golden Dijon Potato Salad

I’ve always tended to gravitate towards the potato salad when it comes to a picnic or buffet table. There is something about a perfectly cooked and soft potato mixed with a creamy sauce that gets me every time. I mean EVERY time!

This Creamy Golden Dijon Potato Salad is everything I want in a chilled potato salad, and I trust it will be everything you’re looking for as well.

Elegant Orzo, Shrimp & Vegetable Salad Stuffed Avocados #SundaySupper

When I learned that this weeks #SundaySupper theme is orzo pasta, I jumped at the opportunity to develop this light and refreshing new dish.

Orzo is probably one of my favorite kinds of pasta. The shape is so tiny and compact that it works well as a filling for a stuffed dish like this Elegant Orzo, Shrimp & Vegetable Salad Stuffed Avocado.

Fresh Healthy Broccoli Salad from Valerie’s Home Cooking Cookbook

The majority of the recipes you’ll find here on Kudos Kitchen are my own original creations. However, from time to time because of my blog I’m approached by publishing houses about doing cookbook reviews. This post (and the recipe for Healthy Broccoli Salad) is one such review. All the opinions I share are 100% my own.
