I found this recipe in a magazine in an orthodontist’s office over 25 years ago. I wrote it on an old piece of paper, which I found in my purse, and still have it that way in my card file. It’s the best potato salad recipe I have every tried.
I gave this sweet-savory chicken salad a little zip with Chinese five-spice powder, which tastes a bit like pumpkin pie spice. Sprinkle some on roasted carrots for an awesome meal. —Lisa Renshaw, Kansas City, Missouri
This colorful salad is a real eye-catcher, and it tastes as good as it looks. Fresh fruit is always a welcome side dish with a summer meal. The addition of oranges and grapefruit gives this salad a different twist.

Kathy Hawkins of Gurnee, Illinois turns grilled tuna into something sensational with her zippy marinade featuring raspberry preserves and Thai chili sauce, a spicy staple in Thai cuisine. Serve on Romaine lettuce, garnish with fresh veggies and this entree is special enough for guests.
TASTY TIP: Add baked potatoes or a crusty loaf of bread and fresh fruit cups for dessert…and dinner is served!
For a different spin on a typical fruit salad, try this creamy mint sauce from Diane Hixon of Niceville, Florida. It’s delicious dolloped on orange slices and other fresh fruit. TIP: “In summer, it’s very refreshing served over melon, strawberries and red and green grapes,” Diane notes.
