Have the deli at home with Natalie Bremson's spin on classic tuna salad. The Plantation, Florida cook uses the bright flavors of mint and lemon to enhance the tuna, leaving you feeling refreshed and satisfied.
I keep cans of fruit in the refrigerator so they'll be cold whenever we want to be refreshed with this salad. My husband loves it. With a touch of mustard added, the dressing is also good over a green salad.

From the first time I tasted this salad dressing, it has been a favorite at our house, served almost exclusively. It's quick to prepare, and it's easily made "light" by using fat-free or light mayo.

For a taste of summer sunshine, Marana, Arizona’s Marian Bauerle whips up this quick, refreshing salad. “It’s pretty enough to double as a dessert,” she notes. “Peach yogurt and coconut really dress up the canned fruit cocktail.”

Since my kids left home some years ago, I have been relying on smaller-portioned. This recipes conveniently calls for canned potatoes, so I can make it at a moment's notice.—June Schwanz, Saukville, Wisconsin
