Another highlight of my Easter menu is this pretty salad, with its slightly sweet homemade dressing and crispy sugar-toasted almonds. I've often taken the salad to potlucks because everyone enjoys it so much. -Lavonn Bormuth Westerville, Ohio

"This was the perfect salad for Easter dinner. I substituted fresh, tree ripened tangerines cut into wedges and it was a good pairing with ham."

"I used mixed greens instead of the lettuce suggested. I made a different dressing. The almonds tasted a little funny but added a nice crunch to the salad."
