Being from the South, I love salads, especially fruit salads. I also try to cook healthier foods, since everyone is trying to watch what they eat. I found a similar recipe to this one a few years ago and have revised it to make it a lot healthier. April Lane - Greeneville, TN
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.
Company was on the way, and I realized I'd forgotten to buy salad ingredients—epic fail! I scavenged the kitchen to come up with the right blend of ingredients, and created an instant favorite. You can use any type of apple but Galas are my favorite. —Kelly Walsh, Aviston, Illinois
A little port or Merlot wine offers a tasty twist to this traditional gelatin that also features pineapple and walnuts. I make it for holiday dinners, especially when turkey or ham is served.
