"My family requests this potato salad whenever we go on picnics. It’s a well-seasoned salad that gets a slight smoky flavor from the addition of bacon," says Charlotte McDaniel of Williamsville, Illinois.
I found this recipe in a local newspaper several years ago and reworked it to my family's taste. So far everyone who has it asks for more! It is a perfect fast and easy dish.—Mary Javor, Hastings, Michigan
Nothing is better at a potluck than a macaroni salad. This tuna salad features delicious celery, green onions and pimientos adding tasty flavor. This salad will be gone in no time.—Ann Kaiser, Wisconsin
My husband, Robert, doesn't care much for zucchini, but even he likes this salad, so it's one I make often. The dressing is generous—it can be used on other green salads and even to marinate meats for the grill. I'm always trying new recipes, and I have lots of eager tasters with three children, six grandchildren and six great-grandchildren. I've entered recipe contests many times before, but this is the first time I've had a recipe picked. It's the nicest feeling!
Grilling the potatoes gives them a fresh and interesting flavor. With the sweet peppers, cheeses and meat, the salad is not only colorful, but hearty, too. I've served this warm, cold and at room temperature. It's fabulous at any temp. —Marianna Falce, Osceola Mills, Pennsylvania
Add an unexpected taste to grilled vegetables with a glaze made with balsamic vinegar, fresh herbs and some honey and brown sugar. The fabulous veggies are paired with barley to make a healthy and deletable side.—Carly Curtin, Ellicott City, Maryland
