This salad is just lightly coated in a sweet-tangy dressing so the spinach doesn't wilt and the apples retain their crunch. We especially like this salad served with homemade bread.—Denise Albers, Freeburg, Illinois
“I modified a recipe I received years ago and came up with this versatile salad. It's refreshing served cold on a hot day, but its equally tasty at room temperature or warmed in the microwave.”
—Robin Thompson, Roseville, California

This colorful salad topped with a sweet and savory dressing is a refreshing addition to any meal. It's a perfect example of how Mother could turn even simple ingredients into something special.

For a summer luncheon, this light, colorful salad is a treat. The crunchy celery, green pepper and almonds along with refreshing oranges and pineapple make this a chicken salad folks can't wait to dig into.
