Pick up the pace on traditional side dishes, whether you’re grilling outside or packing a picnic over the holiday weekend coming up. Here are recipes that put a different slant on the same old potato salad and slaw, plus a pasta salad that isn’t loaded with mayonnaise.
- Ranch Potato Salad, with ranch dressing and tangy gherkins will still please those who love a creamy potato salad.
- Pasta Shells with Arugula, Feta Cheese and Sun-Dried Tomatoes is a fresher-tasting choice than most mayonnaise-laden macaroni salads, and flavorful, too.
- Add dark greens to cabbage for coleslaw, along with Cajun spices and you have a Southern-style Power Slaw.
