    Here's a simply wonderful yogurt and creme fraiche (or sour cream) based dip with honey and lime! Serve with an assortment of your favorite fresh fruit (such as pineapple, bananas, oranges, kiwis, and grapes)--it's also great with honey grahams or macarons. Enjoy! Tip: Can be made with either lemon or lime yogurt, your choice.

    Oh so pretty in pink, but may be tinted blue--or any color you wish!!! Great for baby showers, luncheons, pool or beach parties, luaus, etc. I like to serve the bowl of dip nestled in a bed of ice, alongside a carved watermelon-half filled with fresh pineapple chunks, melon balls, strawberries and grapes. From my son's friend Cindy G., who got the recipe from a caterer in upstate NY. Enjoy!

    A refreshing & delicious herbal and tea blend to sip on a warm day, or just while visiting with your special friend. This recipe was passed along from my friend Virginia Murphy of the Orange County Herb Society. Virginia is a lovely lady who also runs The Herboretum Herb Farm here in the Temecula Valley Wine Country. She grows and sells a nice selection of herbs, scented-geraniums, and other herbaceous plants. A great place to visit if you are in the area!

    Recipe #113363

    Nothing is more refreshing on a warm spring or summer day than a tall glass of iced tea, garnished with tiny sprigs of fresh mint and thin cucumber slices! Try 'Kentucky Colonel' or apple-and-citrus flavored mint varieties. Lovely! Adapted from Victoria Magazine.

    Recipe #430188

    Drink this in place of plain old water--it's so simple, delicious, healthy and refreshing! I've added fresh lemon verbena along with the cucumber and lemon, as it's so plentiful in my garden right now. But any of the sweet herbs such as lemon balm, mint, or scented geranium leaves (try rose!) would also be wonderful. Or try rosemary, basil, lemon thyme or whatever herb or combination you fancy! I keep a jug of this refreshing beverage in the fridge all summer long. Each batch lasts a day or two--just keep in the fridge, and top off with more bottled water to replenish what you drink. After a couple of days you'll need to make a fresh batch. Enjoy! Recipe is easily doubled or tripled, for events etc.

    Recipe #462428

    Holy moly this is some great guacamole! Freshness is key here--you want to use the best quality & freshest ingredients you can find for a great guacamole. Helpful Tip: The addition of white vinegar is optional--it helps retain the bright green color of your guacamole (may store in an airtight container in the fridge, for up to two days). Serve your handmade guacamole with warm tortilla chips and an ice cold beer or margarita, and your favorite Mexican meal (tacos, enchiladas, fajitas, chile rellenos). Enjoy!

    Recipe #112059

    This is a delightful specialty sandwich originating in Nice, in the South of France. The Pan bagnat is a popular lunch time sandwich and also a great make ahead dish to pack in the picnic hamper along with fresh fruits, some cheese and a bottle of wine or sparkling lemonade. I hope you enjoy!

    Even with all the great Tuna Salads on Recipezaar, I did not see this one. My husband raves about it, and I do too. We eat this on toasted bread and lettuce, as well as on crackers; it would also make a great filling for pita bread or wraps. Hope you like it.

    Recipe #114128

    Another of my mother's salads, enjoyed by my family for two generations!! This is a great make-ahead salad for picnics, cook-outs, barbecues, potlucks, etc.

    This is an uncooked tomato salsa (salsa fresca) that's great to make while fresh tomatoes are in season. Stir pico de gallo into chopped/mashed avocadoes to make guacamole (see my recipe #112059), or serve as is with warm tortilla chips and Tex-Mex food (tacos, enchiladas, quesadillas, burritos, chiles rellenos). From LHJ. ENJOY!

    The name says it all--this sandwich is big, thick and buttery, with a slight kick from the horseradish! Very quick and easy to prepare, makes a yummy lunch or simple dinner. Serve warm, with a pickle spear and chips, add a cup of soup or side salad for a more substantial meal. A side of Avocado Horseradish Spread recipe #284084 #284084 makes a tasty dipping sauce. May use sliced oven roasted or deli roast beef, or my Shredded Beef (Crock Pot) recipe #269126 #269126, pile it on as thickly as you wish, and I hope you enjoy!

    A longtime favorite sandwich of mine, since first trying the California Sandwich many moons ago at a little "healthfood" deli stand in Pacific Beach, California. This is my version. Use recipe #173076 for ease of preparation. Also good with thinly sliced tomatoes, in place of the cucumbers. I hope you enjoy!

    This is our new family favorite sandwich! YUM!! Based on a delightful sandwich served at a local market-cafe here in the California wine country. I hope you enjoy. :)

    Recipe #413468

    A lovely, refreshing cool melon and fruit salad, with notes of mint and lime! Serve this classic fruit salad with breakfast or brunch, -or- as a light dessert after a heavy meal. I hope you enjoy!

    Recipe #244838

    This lovely salad would be wonderful on a bed of heirloom oak leaf lettuce with a bit of the vinaigrette drizzled over all. Recipe is an adapted one from California restauranteur and cookbook author Jesse Cool.

    Recipe #416316

    This lovely chicken salad is bursting with yummy flavor! A tasty snack eaten with wheat crackers, or fill a pita pocket for a delicious lunch or light dinner. -Or-, serve a scoop atop a bed of fresh crisp lettuces, for a ladies luncheon or tea! Great!

    Recipe #117785

    These dainty finger sandwiches of cheese, chives and watercress are perfect for an afternoon tea party (or anytime)! Traditionally served on a 3-tier serving tray, and arranged accordingly: scones on top w/warming dome, sandwiches and savories in the middle, and sweets on the bottom. Enjoy!

    This dessert-salad is a blast from the past! It's basically a rice pudding with crushed pineapple, whipped cream, and maraschino cherries. Serve glorified rice as a salad to accompany your holiday meal. It's also a great dish to bring to potlucks or church picnics. Enjoy! Adapted from "Mennonite Girls Can Cook".

    A great make-ahead salad of kidney beans, cucumber, tomato and fresh mint in a tangy lemon-olive oil dressing. Great for picnics, potlucks, barbecues and summertime entertaining. From my mother.

    Recipe #117793

    Delicious light summertime fare---perfect for a light luncheon or supper on the terrace! Serve this fruity chicken salad chilled with a crisp green salad, baguette, and a nice glass of iced tea or lemonade, sparkling mineral water, chenin blanc or California chardonnay.
