Schweppes,

As per requested, long long time ago ...

Thanks for patiently waiting :oops: :oops:

I cannot list the amount of the ingredients and condiments used in the salad cuz I always aga aga according to taste. This almost 2 decade old recipe has been tweaked from the original to accede to the (all male) cousins' request from the in-law's side. Right down to the amt and how big the sausage and potato slices should be.

The original recipe had only potatoes and sausages. And the dressing consisted of only yogurt and mayonnaise.

I would call this a 'male oriented and dominated' salad :wink: :wink:

I made one today due to special request as we're having pot-luck over at the in-laws. Its also great for BBQ parties as well.

Ingredients:
Emborg or Valley Farm brand Sausages (I use my grill pan to brown them)
Frozen mixed vegetables (boiled)
Elbow shaped macaroni (boiled)
Potatoes (boiled)

Condiments:
Kraft brand low fat mayonnaise
Pauls's low fat plain yogurt
Salt (optional)
Paprika
Pepper
Italian seasoning (optional)
Original all purpose salt free seasoning (optional)

* The last four are from McCormick and Masterfoods

Method:
1. Mix the ingredients

2. Add the condiments according to taste.

I usually mix the ingredients first and leave it in the fridge. Before serving, I will then add the condiments. That way the mayonnaise and yogurt doesn't dry out and you can taste its creaminess if you know what I mean.

Here are the pix.

Someone brought some yogurt/fruit salad to a dog gathering many years ago and since then, it has become my favourite item at potluck parties too. :celebrate:

Recipe is very simple. Sorry, using "agar-logy" here since that was what I was taught. :oops:

One tub of yogurt (either plain or fruit flavoured), different types of fruits, eg, grapes, papaya, honeydew, mango .... whatever you fancy. A bit of honey, golden raisins and chopped nuts (optional).

Healthy and nice! :celebrate:

There's another one, also "agar-logy" recipe. Guava marinated with preserved orange peel! I am :drool: even as I type this. Must go and make some soon! :drool:

Image

Very simple. Slice guava into thin slices. Cut preserved orange peel into thin stripes. Marinate one day in advance. Enjoy! :celebrate:

One last one. Green mango with sour prune. Yes, really green as in unripe. Think they are call Thai Green Mangoes if I am not wrong. I normally get them from Sheng Siong, seems like they are the only place that sells them.

Image

Very simple again. Slice mango thinly, throw in a bit of sugar (to taste, don't forget the green mangos are very sour) and throw in some sour prunes. Again marinate for one day in advance.

Was at Sheng Shiong today. Here's how the green mangoes look like.

:celebrate: Yes, it's very good, especially eaten chilled! :celebrate: Oh yes, remember, no orange or citrus fruits. It's too acidic for this salad.
