Our grandchildren love roasted asparagus—especially in this refreshing salad. The orange dressing gives it "zing", and sunflower kernels add crunch. I like to make it with my homegrown asparagus.

It wasn't Thanksgiving without my grandmother's cool and tangy cranberry fluff. WIth only four ingredients, it's a cinch to make. Now my siblings and I carry on her tradition. —Leah Nicholes, San Diego, California
This festive toss bursts with fresh flavor from mandarin oranges, spinach and cranberries. The homemade dressing is easy to stir together and gets a unique taste from nutmeg.—Preci D'Silva, Dubai, United Arab Emirates
I first made this fruit salad for my husband’s surprise party on his 73rd birthday. It’s been a hit ever since. The night before serving, I combine the oranges, pineapple, grapes and strawberries in a large plastic bag, then refrigerate until ready to serve. I also make the dressing the night before. —Lea Ann Schalk, Garfield, Arkansas
I love salads and Greek food so decided to create a Greek salad. I based my recipe on a salad from one of my favorite restaurants. My husband and kids were the taste-testers, and now this is one of my most-requested dishes for family get-togethers and holidays.—Patti Leake, Columbia, Missouri
