Summer Salad

Those hot summer days can be unbearable if you have to spend them in the kitchen working over a hot stove to get dinner ready. Most people no longer have homes with a summer kitchen built into them, instead we have our outdoor BBQ grills to take the heat out of the kitchen. Another alternative for warm summer nights is to make the main course a salad.

Here is an excellent salad that makes a very satisfying meal.

Or try this recipe.

3 medium apples chopped

One half of a small head of cabbage, sliced and chopped coarsely.

1/4 cup raisins

1/4 cup raw shelled sunflower seeds

1/2 cup raw almonds

1-1/2 cups plain yogurt

1 squeeze fresh lime juice, (Not too much)

Combine all ingredients in a salad bowl and serve with crusty bread and perhaps some cold slices of chicken as well.

Be very careful with raw almonds. Trader Joe's and other natural foods markets have been having problems with serious contamination. TJ's even stopped carrying them raw for a while. I've been buying pasteurized.
