The tang of this salad from Judith Priglmeier rounds out any menu with a splash of color. “Quick and easy is often on my mealtime agenda, so this salad is perfect,” she writes from Aitkin, Minnesota. “Plus, I can make if for a few or an entire crew!”

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."
This hearty and colorful main-course salad is easy to throw together when I get home from work, because it uses canned black beans and Mexicorn and packaged chicken breast strips. I sometimes add a can of ripe olives and fresh cherry tomatoes from our garden.
