Whenever I serve this make-ahead pinwheel recipe, they disappear fast. When a friend at the office shared them with me, I knew in one bite I’d be taking her pinwheels home for the holidays. —Diane Martin, Brown Deer, Wisconsin
Yep, they’re made with corn chips! These salty sweets were a staple after meetings at the quilt guild I belonged to in South Dakota.—Carol Tramp, Wynot, Nebraska
This fluffy salad is a welcome treat on warm Texas afternoons. Because there’s a blueberry orchard near our home, we often pick up berries to use in this recipe and others. When blueberries and strawberries aren’t in season, you can substitute frozen berries with equally good results. —Karen Wenzel, Conroe, Texas

I’m a “transplant” from Wisconsin currently living in Texas. Even after 20 years, I can’t get enough of our wonderful local citrus. This is one way to work it into a main dish. The combination of tangy fruit, spicy jalapeno and distinctive cilantro is perfect over any meat, poultry or fish. We also dip into it with chips. —Lois Kildahl, McAllen, Texas
My family has always enjoyed this crunchy four-ingredient snack. When we go camping, each person includes one additional ingredient like mini marshmallows, corn chips or cookie pieces. The taste is never the same, and we’re often surprised by the combinations. —Shelley Riddlespurger, Amarillo, Texas
When we need a quick meal to share, we turn Cobb salad into a sandwich masterpiece. Sometimes I swap in tortillas for the bread and make wraps instead. —Kimberly Grusendorf, Medina, Ohio

This recipe makes art in a bowl! All the colors of summer are captured in this salsa with a fresh, light flavor perfect for snacking between swims or to kick off a backyard barbecue. This can be served with chips or alone as a side dish. —Catherine Goza, Charlotte, North Carolina
