This colorful salad from Kimberly Dray of Pflugerville, Texas blends together all your favorite taco ingredients...minus the ground beef. And you won't miss the meat at all! The guacamole dressing is thick and creamy.
Two kinds of peppers, fresh olives and lots of feta cheese will make this colorful Greek toss up, sent in by Glenda Parsonage of Maple Creek, Saskatchewan, a favorite. For a change of pace, try it with capers and lemon slices on top.
A tangy dressing drapes the veggies in this vibrant salad from Sheli Jo McMahon of Menomonie, Wisconsin. “Although the recipe has quite a few ingredients, it’s simple to make,” she says. “It’s great for summer cookouts.”
IF YOU like carrots, here's a great recipe. It's easy to prepare and healthy. My mother made it every holiday, using either regular or golden raisins.
This was one of the first recipes I tried on my husband when we were newlyweds. He was skeptical because he didn't like raisins, but now this is one of his favorite salads.

A friend shared this recipe with me years ago. She had a vegetable garden and always had a good yield of cucumbers. This pleasant, comforting salad is the right amount for one or two. The cucumber and green onions give a nice texture contrast and refreshing crunch.

I put this salad together with vegetables I had left in my garden. My family liked it so well, I started bringing it to community suppers and was often asked for the recipe. It's a refreshing side dish for any meat entree.
