    I made a pasta salad w/kidney beans and corn with the usual onions, celery, green and yellow peppers. Mixed it with Greek dressing. Whole neighborhood gobbled it up.

    Or you can use Thousand Island Dressing for potato salad - makes it kind of pink.

    also, you can use lowfat, low-cal salad dressing if you are wanting a lighter dish.

    I made a chicken salad this week and added some fresh dill...it was so good! I used mayonaisse (light) but I bet ranch dressing would also be good for this.
