Everyone has a favorite potato salad, and this is mine. As a young bride 36 years ago, I was eager to learn how to cook and make things that my husband would love. I combined my mom's and his mom's recipes, and this is the delicious result. —Angela Leinenbach, Mechanicsville, Virginia
"A great way to jazz up an old favorite" is how Julee Wallberg describes the swift sandwiches that she creates in Reno, Nevada. The creamy filling gets a taste boost from bacon and plenty of crunch from diced celery.
I visited Mexico last year and was inspired by the fresh flavor of the food. Tomatillos and limes were widely used, and they add a tangy punch to this egg salad. —Sarah Inglis, Wappingers Falls, New York
"I like to serve this sandwich filling on bread that has been spread with Dijon mustard topped with lettuce and cheese," writes Phyllis Jarvinen, Webster, North Carolina. "With a side of chips and a sliced apple, it's one of my favorite lunches."
I like this combination of egg salad and tuna salad, rolled together in flour tortillas. Whether I eat them right away or in a day or two, they retain their flavor.—Francine Wingate, New Smyrna Beach, Florida
Meet the Cook: Whenever I have company, I like to be able to just pop the food on the table. So this recipe's a real favorite of mine. I got it from a friend who made it for our church get-togethers.
My husband and I raised four children; today, we have seven grandchildren. In our small town, farmland surrounds us on three sides, and we face the Columbia River on the other.
