Refreshing Fruit Salad – Recipe

The hot summer weather is getting its way, but this should not stop us from enjoying some refreshing summer desserts.

Lots of hot days in the sun, more time for outdoor fun, and less time to spend in the kitchen.

This is a very refreshing fruit salad, great for any occasion, and very easy to prepare.

Nutritious Salad Dressing – Magic Green Sauce Recipe

In the past post I mentioned a very nutritious Quinoa salad flavored with this Magic Green Sauce.

Green Goddess Quinoa Salad – Recipe

This Quinoa Salad with Magic Green Sauce became my favorite from the first time my daughter-in-law served it for lunch during one of our visits.
It could easily be a light lunch meal in itself, or as an accompaniment to a main course.
Today I will share a recipe for the salad, since you already have the recipe for the sauce/dressing from my previous post.

Refreshing Tomato Salad – Recipe

Cucumber salad

I have just picked some fresh cucumbers from my garden…..they are so fresh, and so much tastier than the ones from the store (no wax on these ones….). Garden fresh cucumbers actually do have a very nice taste, and can be eaten with the peel on, but I prefer them peeled.

Cucumbers may be used in a variety of ways: in tossed salads, as cucumber tea sandwiches, sliced and served plain or with a dip, used in numerous appetizers, etc. I love my cucumbers in a cucumber salad, dressed with sour cream or vinaigrette style.
