In college, my best friend and I debated whose mom made the best potato salad. Turns out they were almost identical! Even though I've since tweaked our recipe, it still takes me home again. —Ellie Martin Cliffe, Milwaukee, Wisconsin
Our family absolutely loves broccoli, so I'm so happy there's finally a slaw mix in stores that uses broccoli stems. I like this slaw best after 20 minutes or so to allow the flavors to meld. —Donna Marie Ryan, Topsfield, Massachusetts
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!"
This lightly sweet, fresh-tasting salad was devoured by the guests at my Southwestern theme party. The unusual combination of tasty ingredients brought them back for seconds.

With plenty of sliced steak and veggies, this main dish salad will please even the biggest appetites. It's a terrific dinner on hot summer days or any time you feel like grilling. —Mildred Sherrer, Roanoke, Texas
