Homestyle Salad with Knorr Homestyle Stock Recipe

Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants. -Michael Pollan This salad recipe might make the second part of the above quote a bit tricky! Out of all the recipes I've made with Knorr Homestyle Stock, my favorite use for it is as a salad dressing. Specifically,  my  Homestyle Mayonnaise .  It's the perfect complement to an assortment of veggies, leaving even my carnivorous Sexy Nerd happy to have a salad for dinner. Best of all, it is 100% unique and unlike any dressing you've ever made or picked up at the store. It looks so healthy, right? That's because it is. This is boring potato salad's New York cousin. Potatoes...and sweet potatoes! Together forever. How hodgepodged is this salad? We're throwing in the celery leaves. We're peeling our cucumber with pretty stripes because we're fancy like that. And egg! And broccoli! Homestyle Salad with Homestyle Mayonnaise (Recipe Yield: 6 servings)(Total Time: 30 minutes, including prep)

No more chef-prepared meats and cheeses and cakes. *Sigh*  It seems the festival gods were listening. Did you know there's another amazing event starting this week? We don't even need to wait until the weekend to attend.  That's right. There's a 99% chance of wine. That was a weird thing to say, right? Now it makes sense. Trying to get my mind off the lack of upcoming wine festivals, I flipped through the latest issue of Garden & Gun. I was careful not to bend any pages so that the magazine can be shared in the waiting room of the dental offices I manage.
