Grandma's Cranberry Relish -- This crunchy, sweet & tart version of the holiday salad came from Grandma Parke's kitchen and was a tradition with our Thanskgiving and Christmas turkey dinners. Folks who've only had gelled cranberry-in-a-can don't know what they're missing! As kids cranking the old-fashioned hand food grinder, it was as much fun to make as it was delicious to eat.

German Potato Salad — This is a recipe from Ron's grandmother. It is a nice change from the usual mayonaise-based potato salads. Ron raved about it so much after we got married, that I had him get the recipe from his grandmother. You can easily double or triple the recipe for a large crowd, and it keeps for several days in the refrigerator.

Great Potato Salad #1 Once you've tasted this one, you'll want to throw away your ordinary, run-of-the-mill potato salad recipe. It's absolutely the best!

Great Potato Salad #2 -- This recipe came from a Southern Living Magazine. The added ingredients really dress up an ordinary potato salad and give it an unusual flavor.

Ruth's Caesar Salad Dressing -- Ruth isn't a family member, but she is a friend and this salad dressing is legendary among the Memphis clan. Each year on All Saints' Day our church has an all-you-can-eat shrimp dinner. The shrimp, of course, are delicious, but for some the real highlight of the meal is the salad (Romaine lettuce and croutons) topped with this salad dressing.
