This side really sparks up a meal and goes fairly well with everything from grilled steak to tuna salad. I like to serve it in individual, lettuce-lined glass bowls with a sour cream star piped on top and a sprinkling of dill.—Karen Ann Bland, Gove, Kansas

"Very good refreshing salad with garden tomatoes. I left out the 1 T milk as I did not think it needed to be thinned."

"I left out the dill and used 3 plum tomatoes. Oh so yummy! A nice fresh change of pace. Great with fat-free sour cream.
