"My teenage sons can't get enough of this dish," confides Diana Mullins of Lexington, Kentucky. "I like it, too. The grilled chicken strips make the salad hearty enough for a meal...but the assorted fresh veggies keep it nice and light."
Dining alone? Try this colorful salad from Mary Lewis of Norman, Oklahoma. Refreshing mandarin oranges and a creamy citrus dressing complement tender cubes of chicken, pasta spirals, veggies and sliced red grapes. Truly, it's an entree in itself!
This cool main-dish salad really hits the spot during the warm summer months. Plus, its colorful layers look so appealing. Served with a roll or muffin, it's a complete meal.

These homemade buffalo chicken wraps are excellent. Honey and lime juice help tone down the hot wing sauce for a refreshing zip. They’re perfect for lunch or a light summer meal with a tall glass of ice-cold lemonade. –Priscilla Gilbert, Indian Harbour Beach, Florida
"This refreshing recipe is totally flexible," Lillian Julow writes from Gainesville, Florida. "You can use yellow onion instead of red, lemon juice instead of lime and Monterey Jack instead of cheddar cheese. Don't like hot sauce? Leave it out. I believe in making a recipe your own."
Already cooked chicken strips make this a super easy meal when I'm trying to get dinner on the table in a hurry. A rotisserie chicken from the grocery store is another road to take when time is short and hungry family members surround the table! —Kellie Mulleavy, Lambertville, Michigan
