Our pasta began as a special, but due to its overwhelming popularity, we made it a permanent part of our menu. In the 9 years we've been open, we have become a favorite restaurant with locals and travelers alike because our food is not typical hotel fare.—Monroe Street Grille, Tallahassee, Florida
Over the years my husband and I have moved to different areas, and I've collected recipes from all over the United States. This flavorful salad recipe comes from New York. I've served it for luncheons for many years, and it's one of my husband's very favorites. —Linda Wheatley, Garland, Texas
I like this salad because I can prepare all the ingredients ahead of time and just throw it together at the last minute. Barbecue sauce in the dressing gives a different taste to this green salad that features the fun fixings for a BLT chicken sandwich. Even picky eaters love it.
