As soon as the first head of cabbage was barely big enough to harvest, Mom made this refreshing slaw. We kids shredded the cabbage while Mom whipped up the delicious, sweet cream dressing. —Ginny Werkmeister, Tilden NE
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
Since I have a large vegetable and herb garden, many of the ingredients in this recipe are truly "homegrown". I found this simple recipe in a magazine years ago and it quickly became a favorite at family picnics. I have five married children and seven grandchildren, and they all love to come home for some of "Mom's cooking". —Wilma Purcell, Alma, Illinois
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.

Yummy shrimp for a salad, but you could also serve it with tortillas or with Mexican rice. Jalapeno and chili powder lend just the right amount of heat and a wonderful aroma! —Marie Bason, Bend, Oregon
