THE SECRET to the fine taste of this salad results from adding the warm potatoes to the mayonnaise mixture.
My Grandma Nellie may have created the recipe herself or brought it with her from Ireland. I recall friends and family often preferred a second helping of potato salad instead of dessert! —Mary Elizabeth Martucci

THIS RECIPE is a favorite of mine not only because it's delicious, but because it was given to me by a very dear friend.
I take this dish to many different gatherings and often, get requests for the recipe. It's a wonderful side dish, compatible with any meal.
MY HUSBAND and I agree - this salad is one of our favorites. The yogurt gives it a unique flavor, and the nuts add extra crunch.
I don't remember where I discovered this recipe, but it's nutritious, tasty and adds color to any meal.

THIS WAS my children's favorite salad when they were growing up. Whenever we would go on a picnic, they requested the "tuna fish special".
The variety of flavors gives it a special taste everyone loves. No matter how many different tuna salad recipes I've tried, this one still tops our list!

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.

THE PEAR and hint of orange are a nice surprise in this salad. It's a little different than traditional Waldorf salad and always brings rave reviews.
The colorful combination of crunchy, fresh ingredients complements any meal.

CREATED by my husband's cousin, this salad appeared in her church's recipe book.
Since it's quick and easy to prepare, I make it often for my husband and me now that we're "empty nesters". It's light and attractive.
