A refreshing, interesting combination of turkey, pasta and fruit with a lightly sweet dressing makes this a family favorite. I found the recipe in an old church cookbook years ago. —Bernice Smith, Sturgeon Lake, Minnesota
Notes Janne Rowe from Wichita, Kansas, "I start this salad by poaching chicken breasts in a mixture of white wine, garlic and lemon juice. It gives them great flavor and helps keep them moist." The cubed chicken, veggies and cooked rice are tossed with a tasty homemade dressing.
The crispy and fruity chicken salad is refreshing served for lunch, dinner or a potluck supper—either warm or cold. For an easy change of pace, I suggest using a bottled salad dressing.—Darlene Brenden, Salem, Oregon
A homemade marinade adds delicious flavor to the stir-fried pork in this main dish salad. The fast, fresh meal is easy to toss together with canned apricots and convenient salad kits. TIP: Look for the Asian crunch salad mix in the produce section near other bagged salad blends. If you can’t find it, pick up mixed greens, snow peas, shredded carrot, chow mein noodles and a bottle of sesame ginger or Asian-style salad dressing.
This recipe combines power-packed spinach, a good source of vitamins A and K, with other veggies, lean meat and crunchy, heart-healthy almonds. Reduced-fat dressing adds a light Asian flavor and touch to each hearty serving.
