Transforming plain deli fare into just plain delicious is a matter of notching up the taste of your store-bought side dishes with a few ingredients.
For example, you can transform:
EGG SALAD with a judicious dash of cayenne pepper or cumin, or by stirring in a smidge of wasabi mayo or horseradish.
Infuse ordinary MACARONI SALAD with a touch of culinary inspiration via vinaigrette, some artichoke hearts, and/or a helping of chickpeas.
And here's a flavorful trick that not only adds kick to a CHUNKY CHICKEN SALAD, but also stretches the quantity: Mix it with chopped green apples or herb-roasted fingerling potatoes; or, for texture, add some dried cranberries or chopped walnuts. Or set out the add-tos so guests can pick their own favorite flavorings.
