Whenever Luci Knepper of Salem, Ohio takes this colorful salad to a ladies luncheon, she gets compliments. "Even my son loves this...and he doesn't care for either cheese or sour cream. The apples add interest and a little crunch...and you can easily substitute cooked chicken for the turkey," she suggests.
Meet the Cook: Served with fresh bread, this makes a nice light meal. I've also used this recipe for entertaining, and it has always been a success at potluck dinners.
While it's a delicious way to use up leftover beef, I sometimes serve it with cold ham and cheese instead.

Meet the Cook: All my favorite recipes are quick, simple and tasty. I came across this salad while looking for something to make with honey. Substituting several of the ingredients, I served it to my husband and two teenage daughters. It was a hit!

MY HUSBAND and I agree - this salad is one of our favorites. The yogurt gives it a unique flavor, and the nuts add extra crunch.
I don't remember where I discovered this recipe, but it's nutritious, tasty and adds color to any meal.

The first time I tasted this dish was 40 years ago, at a Girl Scout dinner. The individual red apples, arranged on the banquet table, were beautiful and so appealing to little girls. Since then, this has been one of my special-occasion recipes. I especially like to make it at Christmastime.
This salad is a perfect fall dish that always gets rave reviews. I clipped the recipe out of a newspaper years ago. Now I find myself preparing it whenever company is coming over—or anytime that my husband asks for it. Besides cooking, I also enjoy gardening and needlework.
Orange juice concentrate lends a tangy flavor to this crunchy salad sent in by Tammy Neubauer of Ida Grove, Iowa. "It's sunny color is sure to brighten up even the grayest day," she assures. "You can stir up the remaining orange juice concentrate for breakfast the next morning," Tammy suggests.
