Here’s a smart choice for busy nights! It takes 10 minutes to prepare and stops hungry tummies from growling in moments. Serve with whole grain rolls to round out the meal. —Jesse Klausmeier, Burbank, California
This was what the Pennsylvania Germans called "wilted salad". It was one of the first recipes I was taught to make. When the dressing is warm, I pour it over the greens and set it aside while I prepare the rest of the meal. The heat wilts the greens, which are still slightly warm when served.

"My family is always thrilled to see this lovely refreshing salad on the table," remarks Valerie Mitchell from Hudson, Ohio. "Its sweet raspberry dressing is the ideal topper for nutritious spinach, fresh berries and kiwi. Nuts and croutons provide a bit of crunch," she notes.
Not only is this salad a treat to eat, it's a delight to the eyes, thanks to the vibrant green and red ingredients. "I made it by combining several recipes, then added a few extra touches," tells Cathy Linzbach of East Grand Forks, Minnesota. "It's great to serve at ladies' luncheon."
It takes only minutes to put together this salad's tangy dressing. Lynn Larkin's vinaigrette of basil, oregano and sage complements the crisp spinach and fresh mushrooms she serves at her Sterling Heights, Michigan home.
This pretty salad is always a hit when I serve it! The recipe came from a cookbook, but I personalized it. Sometimes just a small change in ingredients can create a big difference. —Laura Pounds, Andover, KS
