No matter how big the meal, folks always find room for this delightfully “special” dessert from Nancy Whitford, Edwards, New York. "With its hint of citrus and mint, this medley makes a light pretty side dish at casual cookouts or potlucks," Nancy says. "Best of all, it’s as fast and easy to make as it is to clean up!"
Vinegar and yogurt give this salad a refreshing tang that's unlike typical potato salads with heavy creamy dressings. My family loves the crispness of the onion and celery and the heartiness that comes from the eggs and crumbled bacon.

The combination of caraway and orange keeps this slaw from being anything but run-of-the-mill. I always get requests to bring a big batch to potlucks; proof positive that it's a keeper! I also like to make it a day ahead so the flavors can truly blend. —Lily Julow, Lawrenceville, Georgia
