Layered desserts always grab my family's attention, but salads? Not so much. I wondered if I presented a healthy salad in an eye-catching way, I could get everyone on board. I’m happy to report that I was correct. Find tons more of my salads and other good stuff at —Christine Hadden, Whitman, Massachusetts

"What a colorful, delicious, healthy summer meal. Great way to use up garden bounty, but also for any time of year. Loved the combination of grilled chicken and vegetables."
