I partially put this salad together and take the remaining ingredients (candied nuts, seeds, rice noodles and dressing) to mix in at the potluck. Works perfectly every time. —Joan Hallford, North Richland Hills, Texas
I have always loved the combination of salmon and orange, but the great thing about this salad is being able to do variations. If you don't have goat cheese, try feta. —Stephanie Matthews, Tempe, Arizona
Dill and mustard pep up the tangy dressing that coats this combination of crunchy vegetables and tender potato chunks. We try to eat healthy, and recipes like this one fit right in with our goals.

"This pretty salad is a staple at my house. I've shared the recipe with any satisfied guests," pens Lois Kenneberg, Phoenix, Arizona. "It's easily divided for smaller portions, tooI frequently make just 'one apple's worth'. I you don't like pineapple, try substituting canned mandarin oranges and juice instead."
This pretty salad is always a hit when I serve it! The recipe came from a cookbook, but I personalized it. Sometimes just a small change in ingredients can create a big difference. —Laura Pounds, Andover, KS
We've nicknamed this crunchy salad "Christmas slaw" because of its pretty mix of red and green vegetables. But it's tasty any time. It's great light lunch when stuffed into a whole wheat pita.

Yummy shrimp for a salad, but you could also serve it with tortillas or with Mexican rice. Jalapeno and chili powder lend just the right amount of heat and a wonderful aroma! —Marie Bason, Bend, Oregon
