Crunchy walnuts, plump marshmallows and tangy pineapple dot this creamy lime salad. It's a refreshing side dish for a family meal or a yummy addition to a potluck dinner.

With six kids at home, I try to grow as much of our own food as possible, and our big potato patch means easy and affordable meals for much of the year. For this fresh and tasty side dish, I season red potatoes with homegrown dill. —Jennifer Ferris, Bronson, Michigan

This appetizer is delicious, easy and pretty, too! Everyone who tries it asks for the recipe. The spread keeps for several days, so it's great for making in advance for a party. But once you put it out, it won't last long! —Maire Macy, Fort Collins, Colorado
Guests may wonder if the dessert has been touched by a leprechaun when they see the green layer in my lemon meringue pie. Then, after their first taste, they tell me they feel lucky to be enjoying such a dessert!—Gloria Warczak, Cedarburg, Wisconsin
This is my kid-friendly version of green eggs and ham. For my adult version, I use prosiuitto instead of ham and fontina cheese for the provolone. It's a fun sandwich for breakfast, lunch or dinner. —Beth Dauenhauer, Pueblo, Colorado

One year, when St. Patrick's Day was coming near, I knew what would happen if I served plain cabbage again—the kids would all take one look and go "yuck"! So I decided to try this recipe. It's now become more or less a family tradition for us come every March 17.
In fact, my husband (we're the parents of four and grandparents of five) likes it so much I fix it for him year-round. Friends enjoy it a great deal, too—it makes a great-looking platter!
To start your St. Patrick's Day feast off right, be sure to hand out lucky shamrocks—in the shape of those that top this sweet salad! Making them is merely a matter of cutting gelatin with a cookie cutter. Want to prepare the recipe for another celebration? No problem—just change the cookie cutters to suit the occasion. —Taste of Home Test Kitchen
