101 Soups, Salads & Sandwiches by Gooseberry Patch

Whether you’re looking for lunch recipes, side dishes, or hearty mains, you’ll love the variety in 101 Soups, Salads & Sandwiches Cookbook. Chicken & Dumplin’ Soup, Spicy Sausage Chowder and Pioneer Beef Stew and BBQ Sloppy Joe Soup will all hit the spot! Tarragon Steak Dinner Salad and Pasta Taco Salad make tasty mains, while Mustard-Thyme Potato Salad and Raspberry Chicken Salad are great for toting to potlucks and picnics. Bite-sized or stacked high, friends & family will love sandwiches like Cheeseburger Roll-Ups, BBQ Chicken Calzones, Tuna Paninis and Lasagna Buns. Plus, with the “Terrific Toppings” chapter, you can sprinkle soups and salads with homemade garnishes like Zesty Pita Crisps and Bacon-Onion Croutons, and pile more flavor on sandwiches with Lemony Sage Mayonnaise or easy Refrigerator Pickles.

Thoughts
I’ve been a fan of Gooseberry Patch for so many years so when I saw this book I couldn’t resist buying it. I love that it’s spiral bound, and the pages are easy to wipe clean if something splatters on them.

This book will come in handy when I’m looking for a soup, salad, or sandwich recipe to post for Souper Sundays (soup, salads, or sandwiches) or Weekend Cooking.

Here are some of the recipes I want to try:
Soups
Chicken Cacciatore
Kielbasa
Meatball Vegetable Cheese

Salads
Berry Chicken
Layered Caribbean Chicken
White Bean & Tomato

Sandwiches
Scott’s Ham & Pear
Toasted Chicken Salad Bagels
Yiayia’s Chicken Pitas

Each recipe has the name and place of the person who submited it, and a few of their thouhts on the dish. The last page has U.S. to Canadian Equivlents, Baking Pan Sizes, Recipe Abbreviations, and Kitchen Measurements.

I love this book and want to add more Gooseberry cookbooks to my kitchen library.

  1. I’ve seen the Gooseberry Patch cookbook around for ages but for some reason have never picked them up. I love that the pages wipe clean (I’m a messy cook) and the recipes you list definitely sound like ones I would enjoy – especially the Meatball Vegetable Cheese Soup. I’ll be looking for this one!

  2. Vicki,

    This Gooseberry Patch cookbook sounds wonderful! I especially enjoy meals of soup, salad, and sandwiches. I will keep an eye out for this cookbook.

    Enjoy your weekend, Vicki!

    • I’ve always loved salads and sandwiches, but for some reason I didn’t make soup for a few years. Now I’m craving them.

      I hope you have a great weekend too Susan.

  3. Hey, a cookbook with three of my favorite subjects all in one! 😉 I love that it is easily cleanable!

    Feel free to share your review with Souper Sundays this week too–it definitely fits! 😉

  4. Just reading this post makes me hungry. LOL

  5. Oh I haven’t looked at a Gooseberry Patch book in ages. I always enjoy them. The spiral binding and cleanable pages are great bonuses!

  6. That’s the kind of cookbook I like – recipes for real people. I love spiral bound cookbooks too.

  7. New to me… Have a great week. Cheers from Carole’s Chatter

  8. I have o have that book! I am goi g to look for it at ThriftBooks this afternoon. You came up with some good representative choices from this book. The layered Caribbean chicken salad has my attention.

  9. I, too, have purchased several Gooseberry Patch cookbooks over the years. Soup and Salad are definitely what I crave these days… so I think this is one I should check out before fall.
