"I love creating new and tasty foods, including this popular side-dish salad," Lori Menard writes from Omaha, Nebraska. "I make it often for my husband and me, especially during the summer months. If you add some cooked chicken breast, you can make this a meal for two."
IN SUMMER when it's peak time for fresh ripe tomatoes, this is the salad to serve!
Meaty tomatoes topped with a touch of this dressing will bring on the rave reviews. This tasty salad is also cool and colorful.

“Feta cheese and olives give this salad such great flavor, you’d never guess it’s as light as it is,” declares Angela Leinenbach of Mechanicsville, Virginia. “It’s a nice change of pace and goes with all kinds of main dishes.”
Dining alone? Try this colorful salad from Mary Lewis of Norman, Oklahoma. Refreshing mandarin oranges and a creamy citrus dressing complement tender cubes of chicken, pasta spirals, veggies and sliced red grapes. Truly, it's an entree in itself!
"This different and refreshing combination of fruits is a welcome side dish my husband, Jim, and I enjoy with breakfast or lunch," says Genise Krause from Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin. "The light dressing lets the goodness of the fruit come through."
A friend shared this recipe with me years ago. She had a vegetable garden and always had a good yield of cucumbers. This pleasant, comforting salad is the right amount for one or two. The cucumber and green onions give a nice texture contrast and refreshing crunch.
