A salad like this one is an appealing accompaniment to almost any dinner. You can change the mix of ingredients to include layers of your favorites. I like the tangy vinaigrette dressing with it, but ranch and other types are also very good.
This wonderful recipe dates back to my great-grandmother! You'll love the texture this pretty, moist cake gets from pineapple, coconut and, of course, carrots! Its traditional cream cheese frosting adds just the right touch of sweetness. —Debbie Jones, California, Maryland
"The article 'Serve a Salad...from Your Garden' in the Apr/May '02 issue motivated me to share one of my family's favorite veggie sandwiches," writes Gail Nonamaker of Saluda, North Carolina. "Best when made with fresh garden ingredients, this sandwich is low in fat, packed with vitamins and is a meal by itself when served with a glass of milk. For variety, try substituting kale, Swiss chard or dark green leaf lettuce for the spinach."
