“This lower fat version of a traditional taco salad doesn't lose any of the flavor,” writes Mary Bilyeu of Ann Arbor, Michigan. The creamy, flavorful dressing complements the unique use of a veggie burger as well.
THIS delicious dish was served by my sister-in-law years ago for her daughter's graduation party.
She shared the recipe with me, and I've made it many times, adjusting it to the number of people I'm serving. The secret ingredient is horseradish, which gives the dressing a little zing!

"This different and refreshing combination of fruits is a welcome side dish my husband, Jim, and I enjoy with breakfast or lunch," says Genise Krause from Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin. "The light dressing lets the goodness of the fruit come through."
"This is a cool lunch for a hot day," writes Joslyn Stock from Hampton, Iowa. "The flavor offers a nice twist on a traditional chicken salad and I couldn't even tell that it was made with yogurt instead of mayonnaise!"
"This potato salad is quick and versatile," confirms Caron Osberg of Urbandale, Iowa. Her downsized version of the classic has a creamy dressing and gets a pleasant crunch from chopped carrots and celery.
This crisp and tangy salad from our Test Kitchen hits the spot on warm afternoons and evenings. Sprinkling the cucumbers with salt and letting them sit draws out excess water so they stay nice and crisp.
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.
I AM 83 years old and my mother has been gone for many years, but I'm still using her best recipes. She was a gourmet cook before anyone was using that term and before everyone was counting calories.
This was one of our family's favorite desserts when I was growing up, and it's just as good two generations later! —Muriel Fay
