Like a salad with plenty of crunch? Then, this refreshing recipe from Linda Gearhart of Greensboro, North Carolina is sure to please. Toasted noodles, almonds and sesame seeds provide the crunchy topping.
THIS delicious dish was served by my sister-in-law years ago for her daughter's graduation party.
She shared the recipe with me, and I've made it many times, adjusting it to the number of people I'm serving. The secret ingredient is horseradish, which gives the dressing a little zing!

"This is a cool lunch for a hot day," writes Joslyn Stock from Hampton, Iowa. "The flavor offers a nice twist on a traditional chicken salad and I couldn't even tell that it was made with yogurt instead of mayonnaise!"
This creamy and colorful salad is an ideal accompaniment to sandwiches, chicken or steak. The jalapeno and crushed chips add a touch of Southwestern appeal. Thanks to Jennifer Soapes of Harrison, Arizona for sharing the recipe!
"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."
"This potato salad is quick and versatile," confirms Caron Osberg of Urbandale, Iowa. Her downsized version of the classic has a creamy dressing and gets a pleasant crunch from chopped carrots and celery.
Two kinds of peppers, fresh olives and lots of feta cheese will make this colorful Greek toss up, sent in by Glenda Parsonage of Maple Creek, Saskatchewan, a favorite. For a change of pace, try it with capers and lemon slices on top.
I'VE MADE this salad for my husband and me for years. I don't like cooked spinach, so I was looking for an alternative way to prepare this nutritious vegetable.
This salad is especially delicious made with fresh spinach from the garden.

"I couldn't find a single Caesar salad recipe I liked, so I combined ingredients from a few recipes and came up with this one," shares Kathy Keleher of Oak Creek, Wisconsin. "The addition of fruit gives this salad such a wonderful flavor. You could use a mango or mixed dried fruit instead of an apple or a pear."
