A fresh salad is the perfect complement to any summer meal, like my grilled ribeye steaks. This salad, with its tangy dressing and crisp, crunchy ingredients, has become one of our very favorites.

My husband and I make this awesome salad together—he does the chopping. When we bring it to potlucks, we pack the ramen and almonds separately and toss them in right before it's time to dish up. They stay nice and crunchy that way. —Kristen Pallant, Big Arm, Montana
The bountiful potluck at our annual family reunion includes favorites such as this salad. You can substitute Italian dressing or another type to give this dish a twist.—Barb Hausey, Independence, Missouri
Slices of moist, tender tuna top this colorful combination of fresh spinach, grape tomatoes, corn and edamame (green soy beans). The tangy vinaigrette sparks the salad’s flavors. —Delawrence Reed, Durham, North Carolina
Eye-catching in Christmas colors, this dish looks deliciously decorative on the table. Its combination of fruitiness and nutty crunch is surprisingly simple to create. —Arline Wertz, Millington, Tennessee
