Has it really felt like winter to you? To me not really. The up and down of the temps, it has just been a weird winter in Ohio. I saw robins in January and knew people still mowing Grass at Christmas time. Even the weatherman said we had a snow deficit this year in North East Ohio.

Still, it is winter, in winter we have nice fulfilling, hearty meals, comfort foods as they say. Yes, even a salad can be a winter staple. That is what this week’s theme in Sunday Supper is all about, winter salads.

Most when you think salad you think lettuce, tomatoes, and dressing, it more of a diet food, or even warmer weather eats. Not really salad can be a winter meal as well. To me, a winter salad is usually a hot, bulky salad that fills you up. This has to be because of my roots, my PA roots that are. Many of the German ancestry that is in Pennsylvania is that PA Dutch traditions. So they do make salads that are not lettuce based, and to me, this is what a winter salad is, a no lettuce based salad but will fill you up.

 Many people are more familiar with Hot German Potato Salad, yes that can be a winter salad, but potato salad to me is still more summer like. Digging around some these old church cookbooks my mom gave me When we go to church rummage sales we look in the book sections you find all these old cookbooks that members of organizations, churches, even schools, put together and they are a great resource for recipes. The oldest one I have is from the 1050’s, and it some really neat, “treasured” recipes in it. That was where I found this recipe.

Anyway this salad, well let’s call it the “cousin” of the German Potato salad. It is just a simple noodle version. It is very simple to make and has this tangy dressing with the bacon just make this salad pop with flavor. It is perfect as a side to a pork roast, or you can be like me and just eat it all by itself as the main entrée.

    Yes! Such a weird winter here, too! I loved living in Northeast Ohio but the grey skies and all.the.snow. got to me! 😉 Nothing like that down here in NC… Fun recipe! I just saw some gluten free egg noodles the other day – I need to try them.

    I am perfectly content with mild winters like the one we are having this year! haha it makes the historically long and miserable NE Ohio winters more bearable for sure! What a great salad. I’d make this anytime of the year!

    I agree – church cookbooks have some of the BEST recipes! My husband is an egg noodle fanatic (kind of strange, I know) so I will definitely have to make him this!
