Cucumbers are my very favorite garden vegetable, so I use this recipe often. I got it from a friend 8 years ago. I've heard this refreshing dish keeps very well in the refrigerator, but it goes so fast around our house, I've never found out for myself.

With its creamy dressing and colorful vegetables, this salad is lovely and refreshing. Make it before you head out caroling, and when you return, guests' compliments will be music to your ears.

With its Christmasy colors, this salad is a very merry part of my holiday menu. It serves a big group, but since it also keeps well in the refrigerator, you can look forward to the tasty leftovers, too.
Vegetables that are in season make great additions to this orzo salad. It's the perfect side dish for a picnic, it can easily be doubled for a crowd, or you can add grilled chicken to make it a filling entree. —Danielle Miller, Westfield, Indiana
THIS RECIPE is a favorite of mine not only because it's delicious, but because it was given to me by a very dear friend.
I take this dish to many different gatherings and often, get requests for the recipe. It's a wonderful side dish, compatible with any meal.
This colorful, tasty corn salad is an excellent way to perk up a summer picnic. The seasonings add a bold, refreshing Southwestern flavor that brings people back for seconds. It's nice to have a different kind of salad to share.

I've received loads of compliments in this crunchy salad that is often on our Sunday dinner menu. It's also a great salad to take to a potluck. The flavors blend so nicely that we never tire of this good old standby recipe.
