Not a Christmas goes by that Deb Amrine doesn't fix this bright molded salad. "I've taken it to many holiday dinners, and everyone loves it--even people who don't usually enjoy cranberries," she reports from Grand Haven, Michigan.
We harvest close to 500,000 pounds of pecans on our land here in West Texas. So, of course, I use pecans in many recipes. This tasty, colorful salad is great for holiday gatherings.—Janice Rogers, Odessa, Texas
A refreshing salad or side dish, this recipe impresses family and guests with its striking rosy color. It's a delightfully different alternative to traditional cranberry sauce-the nuts add a tasty crunch.
Perfect for spring, this gelatin salad is slightly sweet and tangy, too. It adds beautiful color to any meal and appeals to appetites of all ages! When the weather starts turning warm, this cool, fruity salad is just right.
Light and fluffy, this colorful salad is a very flavorful family favorite. When I made it for my husband's family before we were married, we all joked about not being able to find any pears, so the name stuck.
I've made this refreshing recipe more than 100 times over the past 15 years! It can be a salad or dessert. When I take it to a potluck, it's always one of the first things to disappear.

My family enjoys this lovely layered salad in the summer with grilled hamburgers. Although I haven't used the recipe long, it's quickly become a favorite. A good friend shared it with me, and every time I make it, I think of her.

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.

Almost as spectacular as the fireworks, this lovely salad makes quite a "bang" at our July Fourth meal. It's exciting to serve, and our guests loved the cool fruity and creamy layers. This salad really added to my patriotic theme.—Sue Gronholz, Beaver Dam, Wisconsin
