Fat-free sour cream and bottled ranch salad dressing keep this salad, from Helen Suter of Golconda, Texas, easy to prepare. Bacon and cashews punch up the flavor, and broccoli, cauliflower and peas make it nutritious.
This creamy and colorful salad is an ideal accompaniment to sandwiches, chicken or steak. The jalapeno and crushed chips add a touch of Southwestern appeal. Thanks to Jennifer Soapes of Harrison, Arizona for sharing the recipe!
“This is a great meal by itself or equally refreshing as a side salad,” says Kristin Scharf of Portage, Indiana. Tart cranberries and dressing, tangy feta and crunchy pine nuts create an attractive blend.
The vibrant colors make this dish a pretty first course or light dessert. I've always been a fan of savory hollandaise, so I created this version for fruit, explains Patricia Harmon, Baden, Pennsylvania.
