Meet the Cook: Back in the 1950's, I was a home economist for the electric company, which is how I came across this recipe. During spring and summer, when it is hot here, my family especially likes it. (My husband and I have two children and a pair of granddaughters, all grown.) I've also found this chicken salad is good for women's luncheons and covered-plate meals since it's so different. -Johnece Stuard, Mansfield, Texas

Being from the South, I love salads, especially fruit salads. I also try to cook healthier foods, since everyone is trying to watch what they eat. I found a similar recipe to this one a few years ago and have revised it to make it a lot healthier. April Lane - Greeneville, TN

"Mojitos are a fun summery drink and the inspiration behind this refreshing side salad. No rum was used in my recipe, but it certainly could be added to the vinaigrette.” —Donna Marie Ryan, Topsfield, Massachusetts

The trick to pickled carrots is cooking them just long enough to retain a harvest-fresh "snap." These tangy treats are terrific for perking up a buffet table or relish tray or serving alongside a hearty sandwich.

"Cool and refreshing"—that describes this leftovers salad pretty well! It's full of cold ingredients. Prepare it as a side dish or serve it along with homemade bread as a main course. I frequently make my salad for family luncheons. That's only appropriate—the recipe was passed down to me by my mom, who got it from her mom! I'm a full-time wife and mom (plus home-school teacher!) with five sons, who range in age from 9 to 1.

The crunch of walnuts and bacon is a pleasant contrast to the creamy rice-shaped pasta. The blue cheese and arugula lend a satisfying, savory quality.
