I love this salad and at times to make it super simple I'll buy bagged lettuce and bottled ceasar dressing and put it all together.

You may be salad out by now, but this one is always a big hit.....
Fresh tortellini (I like tri color) cooked and cooled. Mix with shrimp, peas, diced red onion. Mix with a dressing that's a fruit/herb combo. I have used orange/basil or lime/cilantro. If the dressings are fat free, I'll mix in a little olive oil to help keep the salad moist. Sometimes I'll throw in an additional ingredient like small brocolli florets or chopped red bell pepper.
It's a really pretty salad!

I love the broccoli salad, I make it all the time during the summer. My recipe doesn't have raisins or sunflower seeds in it, although the last time I made it I added sliced almonds and matchstick cut carrots and loved it.
This isn't really a salad but more of a dip, but buffalo chicken dip is so good, tastes just like hot wings, without all the mess!

this is always a hit for us!
Cut up apples in to bite sized pieces (Grannay Smith or other tart appple)
Cut up Snickers bars into small pieces
Mix with Cool Whip to coat
The Cool Whip keeps the apples from browning and it tastes like a carmel nut covered apple!
