"Cool and refreshing"—that describes this leftovers salad pretty well! It's full of cold ingredients. Prepare it as a side dish or serve it along with homemade bread as a main course. I frequently make my salad for family luncheons. That's only appropriate—the recipe was passed down to me by my mom, who got it from her mom! I'm a full-time wife and mom (plus home-school teacher!) with five sons, who range in age from 9 to 1.

GROWING UP in a German community, I ate this salad often. It's an old traditional dish - I recall my grandmother talking about her mother making this recipe. As a variation, the "old-timers" in my family enjoy cutting up some boiled potatoes on dinner plates, then serving the warm salad mixture on top of the potatoes. -Robert Enigk, Canastota, New York

This was what the Pennsylvania Germans called "wilted salad". It was one of the first recipes I was taught to make. When the dressing is warm, I pour it over the greens and set it aside while I prepare the rest of the meal. The heat wilts the greens, which are still slightly warm when served. -Patty Kile, Elizabethtown, Pennsylvania.
