Inspired by a Vietnamese banh mi sandwich, this recipe is an awesome way to use leftover chicken. If you have a little extra time, let the carrot and cucumber marinate in some rice vinegar before taco time. —Melissa Halonen, Spokane, WA
A splash of lime juice brightens and binds all the flavors in this salad that's chock-full of good-for-you ingredients and fresh herbs. The perfect potluck dish for summer outings! I like to use roasted or grilled fresh corn. —Jennifer Wickes, Pine Beach, New Jersey
Shrimp lovers will dive into this speedy skillet dish that gets its Asian flavor from ginger, peanut butter, sesame oil, soy sauce and red pepper flakes. “My family loves it,” writes Ramona Heflin of Farmersville, Ohio, who sent in the recipe.
"When I worked as a cook on the ferries that travel between Bellingham, Washington and southeastern Alaska. I served this salad to our passengers and crew, and it always received compliments," notes Patricia Morgan of Haines, Alaska. "It's best chilled overnight."
"This spicy shrimp is absolutely wonderful served over shredded cabbage. When I'm in a hurry, I use packaged coleslaw mix instead," notes Beth Malchiodi of Brooklyn, New York. "It's a welcome change from rice."
Peanut butter gives this tasty blend of red peppers, snow peas and shrimp its Thai flavor, while ginger and red pepper flakes spice it up. The colorful main dish, served over pasta, was sent in by Jeanne Fisher of Simi Valley, California.
“I found this recipe years ago and immediately served it for a ‘company dinner’,” shares Lisa Mahon Fluegeman from Cincinnati, Ohio. “It’s easy and fun and takes only minutes to cook, but it makes a fancy entree for special occasions. The peanut butter and soy sauce lend a nice Asian flavor.”
