Avocado Salad with Bacon and Sour Cream
Fresh avocados combined with a few ingredients for a great, refreshing salad.
Chicken Salad with Bacon, Lettuce, and Tomato
Chicken, bacon, and tomato tossed in a lemony mayo and served over lettuce.
Pineapple Couscous Salad
Pineapple and green chilies flavor this salad from Margaret Pache. 'I used to make this with rice, then decided to try couscous for something different,' explains the Mesa, Arizona cook.
Asian-American Slaw With Peanuts and Jalapenos
Refreshing change from supermarket coleslaw! Suit yourself: more sauce, more or less of each vegetable! Cashews or toasted soy work, too.
Cilantro Chicken Salad
Here's a perfect summer recipe from Linda Schwab-Edmundson, Shokan, New York. A distinctive dressing of cilantro, cumin and lime is refreshing over crisp lettuce and tender chicken. Toss in cherry tomatoes, if you'd like, for color.
Spinach Ranch Salad
An unusual combination I came up with one night while preparing my lunch for the next day. Was scared to try it, but it turned out to be good! You could replace any ingredient to make it your own.
Nina's Cucumber Salad
The recipe for this easy salad came from my grandma, who made it in the summers with fresh dill and cucumbers from her garden.
Southwest Chicken Salad I
This is a highly seasoned salad that is a nice change from the typical 'taco' version. Even my kids and their friends love it!
Roasted Corn Salsa
'This colorful salsa is worth the extra time it takes to grill the ears of corn,' assures field editor Nancy Horsburgh of Everett, Ontario. 'The flavor goes well with barbecued meats, but it's also tasty served with chips.'

Black Bean Avocado Salsa
This has to be my favorite summer salsa. It's colorful and fresh tasting. It makes a bunch, so invite some friends over. I like to take the lime after it's been juiced and rub down the bowl I will be serving the salsa in. I also rub the lime on the plastic wrap this will help keep the avocados from turning brown. Don't forget the tortilla chips!
