This crisp and tangy salad from our Test Kitchen hits the spot on warm afternoons and evenings. Sprinkling the cucumbers with salt and letting them sit draws out excess water so they stay nice and crisp.
This tempting toss-up of vegetables, fruit and a sweet tangy dressing is a tasty alternative to pasta salads. "My sister's husband needs to watch what he eats, so she's a great source of healthy recipes like this one," says Peggy Cathey of McKinney, Texas.
IN SUMMER when it's peak time for fresh ripe tomatoes, this is the salad to serve!
Meaty tomatoes topped with a touch of this dressing will bring on the rave reviews. This tasty salad is also cool and colorful.

This crisp refreshing salad is flavored with green pepper and a sprinkling of celery seed, then drizzled with a slightly sweet vinegar dressing. "I use this recipe over and over," says Mildred Mann of Jeffersonville, Kentucky. "It's especially nice for picnics or other warm-weather get-togethers."
I used to care for an elderly woman who loved artichokes, so I created this salad especially for her. Not only is it convenient to make with bottled Italian dressing, but you can dress it up with salad shrimp, too.Melissa Mosness, Loveland, Colorado
