ES, a favourite of mine is the wombok Salad on the back of the Chang's Noodle packet. You can assemble the salad, make the dressing and just add the noodles and dressing when ready to serve.

That is very popular whenever it's served Michele, love it.  I always keep back some of each ingredient because if the whole salad isn't eaten in one sitting, it will go soggy.  It has lasted me for days this way with the cabbage etc in a ziplock bag, the seeds and almonds in another and the dressing in a lidded jar.

Oh yum Mich! I think I've had that salad once and it was delicious. I'll make it if we have a warm day forecast :P

Thanks Amy for all the naughty ideas ;D Thinking something a little healthier and less chocolaty. Still getting over Easter and birthday cakes ;) will go through the books and forum tomorrow. Something will pop up.

LOL oopsies :-)) :P I didn't have my "healthy food brain" working. I rarely cook healthy treats for special occasions, they're my excuse to make something really decadent ;D
The raw macadamia lime cheesecake sounds delicious ;)

We'll probably go into Shark Bay for a coffee and dinner will be something from the freezer, but DH will possibly defrost and reheat it.  ;D :D

I need some help too. My brother has kindly invited all the family to lunch for roast lamb, and I am on salad duty. I am looking for a salad recipe that I can prepare the night before as we are doing the Mothers Day Classic walk in the morning. I was thinking of a brown rice salad, but will need another salad. Any suggestions?
PS please don't suggest the beetroot salad as it is one of the few things I don't like:(
JulieO's curry pasta salad is delicious and easy.

I am usually the same ad you Amy. But we have had a month that included lots of decadent things thanks to Easter, DH 40th and DS 6th birthdays. Definitely don't need any more decadence :)

Sounds good Yvette ;D

Hally, I love the sound of a buffet breakfast! It's my favourite meal of the day :)

Kimmy, you should ban DH and DS from having decadent birthdays so you can have decadence on Mother's Day ;D

Cookie, I like your plan, sounds relaxing and easy ;) :D

I'm thinking now maybe a roast for lunch. But my mum is a hard one to cook for, she doesn't really have an all-time favourite meal or anything :P
