There are several variations to this Asian-style salad. But this is the one most folks prefer. Toasted almonds, chow mein noodles and sesame seeds contribute to this salad's "crunch".Sue McLaughlin, Onawa, Iowa
My mom always made this salad for Christmas dinner, so it's been a family favorite for many years. I teach special education at the high school level and often incorporate cooking into my lessons. Whenever we make this recipe at school, it's always a hit with the students.
Here's a delicious way to enjoy garden-fresh cucumbers year-round. I got this recipe from a friend and made good use of it one year after my husband harvested a very large crop. Just defrost...and enjoy the crispy texture!
I came up with this recipe one summer evening when we had some unexpected company. I raided the vegetable bin and combined everything I had! Now we often enjoy this salad in the summer, made with vegetables from our garden.
My friend Anne, whom I first met in sixth grade, gave me this recipe. Whenever I'm invited to a potluck and a salad is needed, I make a double batch. There are seldom any leftovers! This is also my favorite recipe to share.
I serve this smooth, fluffy salad all year for special meals, but it's so pleasant around Eastertime with its pretty color and fruity flavor. The apricot pieces are an unexpected treat.

"This is absolutely my most-used dressing," relates Erlene Cornelius of Spring City, Tennessee. "It's so creamy, mild and versatileit gives old-fashioned goodness to potato salad, coleslaw and even deviled eggs."
I FOUND this recipe years ago in an old cookbook. By using different colored gelatins, it blends in well with special holiday dinners.
Of course, I use lime for our St. Patrick's Day celebration. Whatever the holiday, this salad is a big hit and there's seldom any leftover.

“I usually make this the night before out of left-over chicken,” says Margie Dearth of Freemont, Wisconsin. The sweet pineapples complement the crisp celery, green beans and almonds in this flavorful, well-dressed salad.
