Adding a refreshing salad to the spread is a snap with Brenda Moore James' recipe. "The water chestnuts, almonds, celery and chow mein noodles provide lots of crunch," she notes from her home at Livermore, California. "Topping it all is a sweet-sour dressing my family loves."


  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1/4 cup cider vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 5 cups cubed cooked turkey, chicken or ham
  • 6 cups shredded lettuce
  • 1 can (8 ounces) sliced water chestnuts, drained
  • 2 celery ribs, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds, toasted
  • 2 tablespoons sliced almonds, toasted
  • 1 can (3 ounces) chow mein noodles


  1. In a jar with tight-fitting lid, combine the sugar, oil, vinegar, salt, garlic salt and pepper; shake well.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the remaining ingredients. Just before serving, shake dressing and pour over salad; toss to coat.
