My husband really flipped over this deliciously different potato salad the first time he tasted it. An oil and vinegar marinade gives the potatoes a wonderful flavor boost. This recipe is one of my most-requested.

My parents lived in Puerto Rico for two years while my Dad taught English. I grew up eating many dishes from there, but tostones have always been my favorite. I still make the fried snacks when I miss my family.
I can't think of a better dish to round out a meal. My grain salad features all my favorite nuts, seeds and fruits. Try adding grilled chicken to make it a meal on its own. —Rachel Dueker, Gervais, Oregon
For an easy spanakopita, try this version that is made in a pan, then cut into squares. It has all the wonderful taste of the classic version...buttery phyllo with a spinach-cheese filling, but is so simple to do.—Barbara Smith, Chipley, Florida
This creamy dish comes alive with the addition of sweet potatoes, brown sugar and cinnamon. Fresh pears lend an unexpected, yet fitting, special touch. Taste of Home Test Kitchen - Greendale, Wisconsin
