With the sunflower kernels and a peanutty dressing, this is a new twist on carrot-raisin salad. My family loves this delightfully different combination, and I'm positive your family will, too.—Tami Escher, Dumont, Minnesota
"Hoping to convince my son to eat his carrots, I came up with this refreshing salad," writes Louise Ross of Santa Rosa, California. "The big plus is that everyone in our family loves it." Her colorful spin-off on a traditional carrot and raisin salad tosses dried cranberries, pineapple and mango into the mix, along with a light yogurt and mayonnaise dressing.
"My husband and I spend most summer days working in our gardens, so I like dinner dishes that are healthy and easy," explains Virginia Arendt of Green Bay, Wisconsin. "I created this salad when cilantro was taking over our herb garden."
