After a friend brought this crunchy fruit-filled treat on a camping trip, I requested the recipe and lightened it up. It's great on its own, but try it over low-fat yogurt or with milk, too. -Rachel Dandeneau of Dummer, New Hampshire

This is one of my favorite ways to use up leftover chopped veggies, or start new ones! It's a cinch to prepare and you can change the mixture to match your kids' taste buds. Always popular at special events, it tastes just as good the next day. -Heather Ahrens, Columbus, Ohio

This convenient and colorful party classic from Linda Austin in Lake Hopatcong, New Jersey, can be made several days in advance. In fact, it actually tastes better if prepared ahead so all the fresh flavors can blend together. Best served at room temperature with a crusty loaf of toasted French bread or your favorite crackers.

Whenever there's a gathering, friends tell me, "Be sure to bring your bean dip!" With several delightful layers, this is more than a snack—some guests practically make a meal out of it. You'll need big chips to pick up all the scrumptious ingredients. —Claire Rademacher, Whittier, California

Much of our summer menu is done on the grill, and peppers and avocados are favorites in my family. That led me to create this recipe to help spice up our barbecued entrees. I have also served it as an appetizer or thin wedges of bread and as a topping for easy country-style dishes like chicken and rice pilaf. With our 14-year-old daughter, we live on 4 wooded acres on Mt. Pisqua. -Theresa Mullens, Gill, Massachusetts

My husband and I are retired, and I like to look for simple, speedy ways to cook. This thick cheesy dip, with the unusual addition of sausage, goes together in a jiffy.

Savory slices of this bread make a favorite Saturday night meal for my family. Just like pizza, it can be eaten as a fun finger food. Guests can't stop nibbling when I serve it at parties. Plus, it's good warm or cold.
