At lunch with a friend one day, she told me about a steak salad she'd had at a party. It sounded so fantastic, I had to try it for myself. My family would eat it nonstop if we could. Can't seem to get enough of that twangy dressing! —Alma Winberry, Great Falls, Montana
I am a secretary at the University of Oregon. I love living in Oregon and enjoy cooking with the many foods available in this part of the country. Crabmeat is abundant here and makes a great company dinner.
I'm always looking for new recipes for this versatile vegetable. Zucchini is so abundant this time of year, and it tastes so good! It's easy to prepare, stores well and is colorful. This salad goes well with pork and chicken.
You're in for a treat if you've never tasted wild rice from Minnesota! Wild rice is actually a cereal grain that's full of fiber and minerals. It's not only healthful, but delicious-especially when prepared in this dish.
Everyone who tries this salad loves it! I like to make it often when cauliflower is in season. People may be surprised, but there still are a lot of farms here on Long Island, and there's nothing quite like fresh Long Island produce.
When my garden is at its peak, I love to prepare this refreshing salad using my own tomatoes, cucumbers, radishes, green peppers and mint. Make this wonderful dish ahead to allow the flavors to blend and for added convenience.
