The appeal of this popular salad is the combination of sweetness from grapes and raisins, the crunch of celery and sunflower
seed kernels, and the creamy mayonnaise-based dressing. The salad is even better after it chills overnight, so it’s a great
make-ahead dish to take to a potluck dinner.
With just 7 ingredients, this five-star holiday must-have is both irresistible and easy. Plus, it can be prepared a day ahead
and baked in your host's oven; it's also delicious whether warm or at room temperature.
Dressings are a perennial favorite at holiday dinners, and this classic, make-ahead cornbread version is sure to be a big
hit. Reviewer Dorothy Dickey notes: "I always make the entire recipe and freeze half for a side dish when serving roast pork...it
is just as delicious as if freshly made."
Though potlucks are great fun, it can be hard to find recipes that travel well and don't require much attention after you
arrive. These deviled eggs get their kick from hot peppers and will balance out a spread of sugary sweets. Transport in a
standard plastic container–just make sure that it's large enough to hold the eggs in one layer.
