Cathy's Tomato-Bean Salad

As far back as I can recall, my mother and grandmother made this salad...with a few of the ingredients "missing". You see, one night, I was preparing dinner for my future husband—who just happened to be a chef. Naturally, I wanted to impress him with my cooking! But my cupboards were bare—except for a can of "chick-peas" and one of olives. Into the salad they went. That was nearly 7 years ago now...and I'm still serving it the same way today!

I got this recipe in a "swap" with one of my sisters. People usually aren't too familiar with lentils, so they'll at first try only a little. Before long, though, they'll ask to have the bowl passed back down so they can take a "real" helping! We live on a small livestock farm—raising goats, rabbits and chickens—and I've found this salad's an ideal dish to take out to the field. My husband and I have four children, ranging in age from 6 years to 6 months.

"MY MOTHER gave me this recipe. It was actually a three-bean salad, but I added the garbanzo beans (which are also know as chick peas). It goes over big at potlucks because it's not too sweet and not too sour. Be careful to get the vinegar and sugar mixture just right—no guessing on the amounts!"

This rice salad came from my mother's personal cookbook. I'm not sure where she found it, but it sounds like a New Orleans-type of dish to me. I like to make it for special occasions. It tastes especially good with barbecued meats. It also goes well with turkey dishes...and it's nutritious!

The succulent salad shared by Marian Platt of Sequim, Washington was so striking in taste and appearance that our home economists couldn't help but find a fun way to display it—by fashioning edible baskets made from potatoes! (Keep in mind that the baskets can be used for other salads—like chicken or tuna—too.)
