Mexican Salad

This is my favorite salad so far, and I made it up pretty much by myself. :-) (Hence the lack of precise measurements.) It looks a bit messy but tastes great.

Melon and Banana Slaw

The tofu makes a very creamy dressing, which you can use in many different recipes such as on tropical fruit for a first course or for a delicate mixed greens salad garnished with fresh fruit. Other possibilities include using it as a dessert sauce over frozen fruit-flavored yogurt or as a flavorful topping for cut-up fruit for dessert.

Macaroni Salad

Use other vegetables as desired in this salad. Small broccoli florets are a nice addition. Nasoya makes a fat free mayonnaise that may also be used in this recipe. It can be found in most natural food stores.

Grilled Balsamic Vegetables

These roasted vegetables are one of my favorite side dishes, but I love it so much, I could eat it as a main dish several times a week! I usually serve this warm from the oven, but it may also be chilled and eaten as a salad.

Italian Style Quinoa Salad

Quinoa is incredibly nutritious and delicious. It is the quickest cooking whole grain, as it takes less than 20 minutes. Cook a big batch and then use 2 cups to make this great looking and tasting salad or just follow the recipe. Once you taste it, you’ll want to make it often. The nutritional yeast gives it a cheesy taste. As always, use the best fresh ingredients you can get. This salad sings, “It’s Summer”.
