I have to bring one for our cruise-out on Friday. I'd either like something I can make at home on Thursday or something easy to throw together on the boat on Friday. I do have an electric stovetop/oven available.
Any suggestions?This message has been edited. Last edited by: CA Lori,
How 'bout Asian salad (coleslaw with ramen noodles made with Asian dressing)
I like vegetable salads with oil and vinegar type dressing. My Plan B that I've posted many times with broccoli and cherry tomatoes; then there is corn (frozen), onion of some sort (green, red, whatever), bell pepper (I use a different color than the onion so the salad is colorful) and then you can just pour on bottled Italian type dressing (your favorite) or use oil and vinegar (although if you're going to refrigerate it, I would use vegetable oil as olive oil gets yucky in the fridge)

The Asian Salad might be a good choice. I've brought potato salad before.
Martha, is there no lettuce in your corn salad?
No. Just corn, onion and peppers. It's colorful and I always bring home an empty bowl.

CA Lori, Both nances and Linderhof's suggestion sound great so I'll just toss out a third idea to make the choice difficult for you...
Fresh Spinach Salad served with Hard-Boiled Eggs:
Ingredients needed: Large package of fresh baby spinach, some bacon, 6 eggs, a little bit of sugar, vinegar and some paprika.
Thursday, Hard boil the eggs, then cook the bacon, chop the bacon and make a dressing with the drippings using sugar and vinegar (to taste) putting it into a travel-safe container and then refrigerate everything.
Friday on the boat: Warm up the dressing as you peel the eggs, halve them and sprinkle with paprika. Put the spinach in the center, drizzle with the warmed dressing, toss and then top with the chopped bacon. Serve surrounded by the halved eggs ~ I've done this many times at events in the mountains where amenities are limited. No left-overs to take back home yet!
Have fun out cruising... wish I could join you! It's dry here in Idaho and I do love the water!
Edited to Add: Put the eggs shells into what ever container you brought the eggs onto the boat; other than the shells, there should be nothing to dispose of on the boat itself ~ this salad is really "self-contained" and there is usually nothing left....

Thanks, IR. That's one of my favorites. DH doesn't eat spinach. 1) He doesn't really care for it, and 2) he's on coumadin and shouldn't have any green, leafy veggies (Vit. K). Come to think of it, Asian salads aren't his favorites either (they are mine though).
His choice would be the potato salad, but I'm tired of making potato salad and it's time to please "moi"! LOL
