Zesty and fun BLT Bread Salad always draws raves, says Tonya Vowels of Vine Grove, Kentucky. “It tastes just like a BLT, has a light vinaigrette dressing and goes well with so many main dishes,” she adds.
"This tangy sweet side dish is so tasty, you can add just a pinch of salt or non at all," says Susan Skinner-Martin of Sandusky, Ohio. "It's a favorite at picnics and potlucks. For fun, try varying the fruits by substituting apples, cherries or raisins."
"I came up with this quick salad when I wanted a cool treat on a hot day. It's fun for breakfast, as a side dish or dessert," pens Lori Daniels of Beverly, West Virginia. "This pie filling provides all the extra sweetening it needs. Feel free to substitute your favorite fruits."
"Carrots and pineapple give this fluffy gelatin salad its refreshing taste," says Jean Smith of Crossville, Tennessee. "A friend gave me the recipe. I serve this side dish often, whether I'm entertaining guests or my family. Lovely and light, it's perfect with almost any menu."
Notes Janne Rowe from Wichita, Kansas, "I start this salad by poaching chicken breasts in a mixture of white wine, garlic and lemon juice. It gives them great flavor and helps keep them moist." The cubed chicken, veggies and cooked rice are tossed with a tasty homemade dressing.
"My German father-in-law loves to vacation in Greece," relates Jerry Lappin of Garden City, Kansas. "After a stay on the sunny beaches of Rhodes, he game me the recipe for this zesty salad, full of fresh tomatoes, red onion, green pepper, ripe olives and feta cheese. I like to serve it for a light lunch with sourdough, French or Italian bread."
