Lime dressing gives lively flavor to this crunchy salad tossed with peaches, peppers and peanuts. The unusual combination is a great way to use up leftover chicken or turkey and packs well for lunches or picnics. It's also terrific with the addition of grapefruit sections or pineapple tidbits. -Diane Halferty, Corpus Christi, Texas

"I enjoyed this, but it seemed to be too much dressing. So I just added some more lettuce. Lots of good flavor!"
