I enjoy cold pasta salads and rice salads, so I decided to make one with orzo, a rice-shaped pasta. Feel free to add other favorite veggies—like asparagus and green beans—and serve with rolls or pita bread.—Valonda Seward, Coarsegold, California
Rarely do I come home with leftovers when I take this appetizing salad to family gathering and potlucks at work. It's hearty yet refreshing, and the edible "bowl" makes it fun to serve. Our two sons, 26 and 28, consider it a treat.
Southeast Washington is a prime growing area for asparagus, and this recipe is one of the best I've tried using this delicious vegetable. Because it has shrimp and ham, this salad is hearty enough to be served as a main dish.
This colorful salad is nice to serve in the winter when oranges are in season and at their peak. The pleasing dressing recipe, provided by the Canola Info Association, takes just seconds to whirl together in a blender.
