So we're are having an early Christmas celebration with dp family this weekend and I have been asked to bring a salad. My specialties of potato salad and pasta salad have already been taken by others. I don't want to do a garden salad because that's been done to death. I need ideas please. Like fool proof. Amazing tasting. Easy to make.

What about a carrot beetroot salad? Just grate the ingredients .. like carrot beetroot apple..sliced red onion. Make a dressing and top with coriander.

I make a roast pumpkin and feta salad that people seem to like. It's just roast pumpkin, feta, rocket, pine nuts and a vinegarette.

If I'm being super lazy but want something fresh and fast I do a tin of chickpeas, chopped tomatoes, Lebanese cucumber with skin on, salad onion, coriander, salt and pepper and a squeeze of fresh juice. Variations on this could be parsley instead of coriander and maybe a vinaigrette type dressing

These are my go to salads:
Baby spinach, roast pumpkin, crispy prosciutto, feta and toasted pine nuts with a honey and balsamic dressing.
Baby spinach, asparagus, snow peas, new potatoes and smoked salmon with a yummy lemon creme fraiche dressing.
Dressing recipe is:
3/4 cup creme fraiche or sour cream
1/4 cup finely chopped dill
1/4 cup baby capers
1 small garlic clove crushed
Zest and juice of a lemon
2 Tbsp olive oil.
I just blanche the snow peas and asparagus in salted water and set aside. Boil the new potatoes until just tender and then when cool, slice into rounds. Layer all the ingredients and drizzle generously with the dressing. I tend to put the bowl of dressing next to the salad so people can add more if they want.
Chicken Caesar salad.
Baby cos lettuce, sliced chicken breast, crispy prosciutto, croutons and Caesar salad dressing.
