Our striking "flag" salad drew plenty of attention at our Independence Day party. The shimmering stripes are formed with distinctive gelatin layers. It makes you want to salute before spooning some up! —Laurie Neverman, Green Bay, Wisconsin
People love this fruity gelatin ring that gets extra flavor from an ambrosia-like mixture in the center. I've been bringing it to potlucks, buffets and showers for 20 years. While it looks like you fussed, it's easy to make the night before a special occasion.

Any meal benefits from this ruby-colored salad - it's always a refreshing accompaniment. I never have leftovers, since the combination of sweet, tangy and crunchy ingredients is so irresistible.

This refreshing salad is my most requested recipe. A touch of cinnamon makes it taste like fresh peach pie. My father-in-law is an especially big fan of this fruity salad, and I know you'll love it, too.

Whenever I invite my big family for dinner, my grandchildren request this favorite fruit salad. My sons have always liked it, too - maybe the taste runs in our family! This salad is also good for potluck gatherings.
This was one of my favorite salads that my grandmother made about 40 years ago. I always looked forward to going to her house because her food was so good. I make this often in the fall. The color and flavor seem to blend in with the season.

A friend shared this recipe with me years ago. She had a vegetable garden and always had a good yield of cucumbers. This pleasant, comforting salad is the right amount for one or two. The cucumber and green onions give a nice texture contrast and refreshing crunch.
