My famous chicken salad arrives at the party chilled in a plastic container. When it’s time to set out the food, I stir in the pecans and assemble the sandwiches. They’re great for buffet-style potlucks. —Trisha Kruse, Eagle, Idaho
Fun for a graduate's party, these easy sandwiches can be made ahead and chilled. Thinly sliced ham, turkey, beef and cheese are other options for the filling. I've also used halves of 6-inch tortillas to make smaller "diplomas." —Sue Ross, Casa Grande, Arizona
I copied this delightful recipe when I was in Italy visiting my Aunt Elsa. The refreshing sandwich filling is nicely flavored with oregano and mint. I like it tucked into chewy pita bread. —Marcia Fuller, Sheridan, Montana
Every Saturday night, my family loves to have sandwiches for dinner. With their rich cream cheese spread, these have become a favorite. They don’t taste at all light. –Maria Bertram of Waltham, Massachusetts
While the soup simmers, assemble tasty Mozzarella Tuna Melts. Using a mini food processor to chop the celery and onion for the filling helps shave preparation time. Then just pop the sandwiches in the oven.
Family favorite pizza toppings are the not-so-spooky surprise inside these clever calzones from our Test Kitchen. If you serve these on wood "coffins" like we did, be sure to line the surface with plastic wrap or waxed paper.
I stir-fry a combination of sirloin steak, onions and peppers for these hearty wraps. Spreading a little fat-free ranch salad dressing inside the tortillas really jazzes up the taste. —Robyn Cavallaro of Easton, Pennsylvania
I’ve served this highly requested sandwich at get-togethers since my college days. What makes it so good is the hummus and the pickle - everyone notices if the pickle is missing. — Jackie Termont, Richmond, Virginia
