Priscilla Gilbert of Indian Harbour Beach, Florida says: "This flavorful fruity salad’s a favorite for lunch on hot summer days. Chicken is easily substituted for turkey…and strawberry preserves and berries for raspberry in the dressing.”
I took this wonderful tart into school for a potluck that we had during homecoming. I work with 4th graders and we typically eat at staggered times starting with kindergarten and working our way up to 4th grade. Buy the time I got in there to eat lunch, my tart was gone but there was a nice note left telling me how good it was.—Dianna Wara, Washington, Illinois
