This unique salad goes fast at potlucks. It's pretty with the broccoli, mushrooms, red onions and olives. It has a great crunch, and the dressing is quick to make. When time is short and you want something delicious, this recipe fills the bill.

Fruit tossed with feta? U-betcha, nothing betta’! Fresh mint, cilantro and parsley add the perfect pop. I’m always looking for something different to serve my mom, who’s a vegetarian—and she loved this! —Jade Bausell, Miami
I like to make this dish with whatever greens are in season. In spring, I use tender young greens from my garden, including spinach and Bibb lettuce. This salad is our favorite to serve with a baked chicken casserole. It's also perfect for potlucks-just toss the dressing with vegetables right before serving.
This rice salad came from my mother's personal cookbook. I'm not sure where she found it, but it sounds like a New Orleans-type of dish to me. I like to make it for special occasions. It tastes especially good with barbecued meats. It also goes well with turkey dishes...and it's nutritious!
