This flavorful chicken salad is perfect for company. “As a registered nurse with a hectic schedule, I try to prepare recipes that are fast, but also keep the nutritional needs in mind,” notes Carmen Bolar of Bronx, New York. “This one definitely meets all of my criteria.”
From Suzanne McKinley of Lyons, Georgia comes this fresh-tasting medley of veggies tossed with a zesty oil-and-vinegar dressing. Serve the salad alone as a side dish or pair it with tortilla chips for an appetizer.
Stephanie Homme and her family in Baton Rouge, Louisiana are real fans of jicama. “It’s a Mexican root vegetable that’s like a cross between a turnip and sweet potato,” she explains. “It’s juicy, sweet and adds crunch and heat to this wonderful salad with feisty Mexican flair.”
Strips of lean ham and Swiss cheese enhance the sweet pepper mix in this refreshing salad from field editor Cheryl Maczko of Arthurdale, West Virginia. This is even better served the next day," Cheryl notes.
