Gingered Cranberry-Carrot Slaw gives this meal a nice tang with its dried cranberries and sweet-tart pineapple dressing. It also complements Asian and Thai foods. Genise Krause of Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin shared the recipe.
The fresh flavor and crunchy texture of garden vegetables star in this tart colorful coleslaw. Lightly dressed with vinegar and oil, it's a refreshing summer salad. My mom fixed it often when I was growing up...and it continues to be requested often.

"This pretty summer salad is a snap to make, but it looks as though you fussed," writes Sue Zimonick of Green Bay, Wisconsin. The slightly tart dressing also serves as a basting sauce, which gives the thin slices of tender chicken breast a nice fruit flavor.
Crisp and refreshing, this lovely veggie salad takes center stage whenever Hindy Silberstein serves it. "I like to toss it together for large gatherings and parties," she says from Highland Mills, New York. "I always place it in the middle of the table so folks have easy access. Before I know it, my 'center-piece' bowl is empty!"
Cilantro comes through in this colorful side that's zesty but not too spicy. It also makes a great luncheon dish when served with sesame breadsticks, sherbet and sugar cookies. It's sure to satisfy!
