Dried cranberries give this refreshing salad sweetness while chopped pecans lead a pleasant crunch. Whether served on a lettuce leaf or stuffed inside a pita, it makes a perfect lunch or midday snack.

This started out as just a plain-tasting chicken salad. I changed some ingredients and added others. Now whenever I serve it, someone is sure to ask for my version of the recipe! Since I retired from teaching a few years ago, I've enjoyed having time to try new recipes and entertain!
This salad is eye-catching enough to make any chef proud! It's served with a tangy buttermilk dressing that gets a little zip from white wine vinegar. Loretta Matzen shares the recipe from Coram, New York.
When you're looking for a cold salad to serve, turn here! Just combine the ingredients—eliminating the crushed potato chips—and serve chilled instead. Whether you serve it hot or cold, it's delicious.—Jane Payne, Twin Falls, Idaho
Forever on the lookout for good simple dishes to prepare, I tried this delicious salad while on a trip. It's lovely with all the colors and textures, and satisfying with a mixture of turkey, fruits and vegetables. The tangy raspberry dressing is irresistible.
