I love the flavor of curry so I added it to this yummy, crunchy snack mix. The recipe makes use of the microwave so prep is a cinch. For a less spicy flavor, use only 1-1/2 tsp curry and 1/4 tsp of the chipotle powder. —Noelle Myers, Grand Forks, North Dakota
Our college-age daughter, two of her friends and a nephew ate a quart of this salsa with chips in one sitting. They loved it so much that they each took a quart home with them. So be sure to make lots! —Carol Carpenter, Jansen, Nebraska
The topping for this simple Fresh Tomato Bruschetta appetizer can be put together ahead of time and refrigerated. We also love it on top of grilled chicken sandwiches, hamburgers and homemade pizza. —Samantha Cass, Swartz Creek, Michigan
Pepperoni, tomatoes and olives dress up this cheesy baked dip. I serve it with breadsticks and wedges of baked Boboli. You can even prepare individual servings in ramekins if you like. —Kitti Boesel, Woodbridge, Virginia
This convenient and colorful party classic from Linda Austin in Lake Hopatcong, New Jersey, can be made several days in advance. In fact, it actually tastes better if prepared ahead so all the fresh flavors can blend together. Best served at room temperature with a crusty loaf of toasted French bread or your favorite crackers.
My sister brought this recipe with her when she was visiting from California. We served it at a family get-together and everyone just loved it. We're often asked to bring it to potlucks. —Marcia Tiernan, Madrid, New York
