“I received this recipe as a newly-wed and made it healthier by using brown rice and fat-free mayo and sour cream.” Think ladies' luncheon…with a light, refreshing Asian twist!

For a summer luncheon, this light, colorful salad is a treat. The crunchy celery, green pepper and almonds along with refreshing oranges and pineapple make this a chicken salad folks can't wait to dig into.

Count on compliments, not leftovers, when you share this fun, crunchy salad at your next gathering. It's so easy to toss together, and someone always asks for the recipe. —Deborah Weisberger, Mullett Lake, Michigan
THIS WAS my children's favorite salad when they were growing up. Whenever we would go on a picnic, they requested the "tuna fish special".
The variety of flavors gives it a special taste everyone loves. No matter how many different tuna salad recipes I've tried, this one still tops our list!

I write a food column for our local newspaper, and I consider myself a pretty good judge of recipes. But I'll admit I was surprised by this one—I didn't think the usual ingredients would go together as well as they do. I enjoy all kinds of cooking, especially recipes with pork or pasta. —Connie Blommers, Pella, Iowa
"Slice a few veggies, open a couple of cans and you can put together this hearty salad in just seconds," confirms Helen Myhre of Kailua-Kona, Hawaii. "The oranges and pineapple add a hint of sweetness, while water chestnuts add crunch."
