AMISH SALAD MENU
Amish Summer 7-Layer Salad: This one is a delicious classic! This Amish summer seven-layer salad recipe is popular and a staple at church gatherings and potlucks. I've always enjoyed them with their hearty layers of peas, lettuce, cheese. So you'll love the Amish seven-layer salad recipe below. I'm not sure I've ever stood there and counted the layers and it's possible someone corner-cutting cook has shorted me on a layer from time to time, but I do enjoy the salad.

Homemade Ravioli Lasagna: Homemade pasta is a supper staple in most Amish homes. Eggs, flour, and a little salt and, presto, you have the building blocks for a basic pasta. This is why homemade noodles are so popular in Amish kitchens. Those noodles then find their way into soups, stews, and onto supper plates to be buried in homemade tomato sauce. Yum! As times and culinary trends have changed, hearty "one pot" type suppers have grown in popularity. Good stuff, a hearty supper any time of year! Click here.

Summer Dessert Menus
County Fair Lattice-Top Strawberry Pie: By the way, I do love county fairs. At the risk of romanticizing them (I know, I know beef, sheep, etc go to slaughter from there) they are, to me, one of the last bastions of slower-paced Americana where neighbors see one another and the community comes together in celebration of all things agrarian. I used to cover the county fair for my local paper and it was a very special time each summer when "fair week" arrived....it meant demolition derbies, biscuit and gravy breakfasts, fair royalty pageantry, politicians strolling the midway and more. Carmon's recipes make me want to head out to the county fair, but I missed it this year. Ours is held in July. Click here.
Amish Butterscotch Cream Pie: Delicious, creamy cool dessert pie.
Peach Strudel: A refreshing peach dessert!
Double Butterscotch Cake: This recipe doesn't call for homemade butterscotch, instead you use butterscotch chips (I suppose if you are adventurous you could do away with the chips and flavor the cake with your own homemade butterscotch). The recipe makes a very moist, bursting-with-butterscotch cake which reminded me of that first butterscotch cake I had all those years ago. Click here for the recipe.
