"Here's my recipe to make the best-tasting Caesar salad ever," relates Dorothy Smith of El Dorado, Arkansas. Pepperoni slices add a spicy spin to the classic combination of crisp romaine and crunchy croutons in a garlic dressing.

You can toss this tasty Balsamic Asiago Salad together in 10 minutes flat. Simply drizzle bottled dressing over the colorful blend of greens, tomato and peppers, add a quick sprinkle of garlic-seasoned cheese…and serve.
Angie Smith of Clarksville, Tennessee modeled this colorful and festive salad after one she and husband Bob first tasted in an Italian restaurant. “It’s so fast, fresh and goes with almost any pasta meal I make,” she says. “It takes only minutes to prepare, and you can vary the recipe by substituting different cheeses or Italian ham. ”
