An impromptu picnic inspired me to put together this dressed-up chicken salad sandwich. The sauce gives leftover poultry a scrumptious punch. An instant summertime favorite, these sandwiches have become a mainstay at our house.

"The peaches add just the right touch of sweetness and a lovely color to this special sauce."—Sharon Taylor, Columbia, South Carolina

Warm up holiday gatherings with this hot spicy entree from Sue Dannahower in Fort Pierce, Florida. “The dry rub keeps the tenderloin moist and tender,” Sue promises. Because it’s so fuss-free, just pop it in the oven or grill, then sit back and make merry with guests...maybe catch the Super Bowl!
TASTY TIP: For a festive change of pace from beef, resolve to try this spicy Cajun rub on pork tenderloin, too!
