When a friend brought this salad to a picnic, every bit of it was devoured. I never would have thought apple pie filling in a fruit salad would produce such delicious results.

During the holidays, I'll at times serve this unusual salad in place of cranberry sauce. It goes well with pork or poultry . Honestly, though, it's good with any everyday meal, too. It's just a little tart, so it rounds out rich food.
I've been cooking ever since I made corn bread to surprise my family when I was 9. My brothers wouldn't eat it—but my parents did!
My husband and I are dairy farmers in partnership with our grown son.
Baby spinach, mandarin oranges and avocado are teamed in this refreshing springtime salad from Margaret O'Bryon of Bel Air, Maryland. You can also substitute fresh orange slices for the mandarin oranges.
Whenever I invite my big family for dinner, my grandchildren request this favorite fruit salad. My sons have always liked it, too - maybe the taste runs in our family! This salad is also good for potluck gatherings.
It was such a treat to have a crisp, garden-fresh salad back when Mom didn't have much room in our little icebox to keep produce chilled. This salad is as colorful and festive as it is refreshing.

I love to use this dressing for a salad of colorful fresh fruits. Mix the dressing with a medley of watermelon, cantaloupe, peaches, grapes, strawberries or whatever you have on hand for a flavorful brunch dish.
I love asparagus, and I love it even more when drizzled with my light, lemony vinaigrette dressing with a touch of tarragon. It's so perfect as a side for fresh spring meals. —Linda Lace, Winter Park, Florida
This light refreshing salad is perfect for a ladies' luncheon. The delicate, flavorful dressing goes so well with the orange slices. On a bed of green lettuce, it looks as good as it tastes.
