This makes a special salad you would be proud to serve to company or delighted to bring to work for lunch. Don't leave out the blue cheese, it really ties all the flavors together and it is just not the same without it. From Self magazine
The flavor of this was much different than I had expected. You really taste the dijon mustard. I didn't chop up my bok choy just left it in whole leaves and poured the sauce over. I got this on the web and I have only had it warm, but it could be served as a cold side as well.
If you feel as though you do not have time to sit down for breakfast than this is the recipe for you. When I have overripe bananas, I often peel and slice them and place in plasitic bags in the freezer. That way, I can pull them out whenever I want to make a thick smoothie like this one. From Nigella Lawson.
This agua fresca can be used as a template for any soft fruit: cantaloupe, mango, papaya, pineapple, strawberry, guava... the list goes on and on. Start by mashing the fruit and add water to make 1 gallon. Don't be tempted to throw this in the blender, as the best aguas always have bits of fruit floating throughout. You should make it a little stronger than you think since chilling dulls the flavor and ice will dilute it. Extra agua can be frozen into paletas. Please adjust the sugar to you liking.

Mango salsa goes well with any kind of seafood or try it atop goat cheese on toasted bread. Although popular on both sides of the border, mango salsa is probably an American invention. If you can't get good mangoes, try Mexican papayas, peaches or ripe nectarines. This recipe is from Baja: Cooking on the edge.
A healthy salad that will cool you down in the heat of summer. The combination of the ingredients are very refreshing. This recipe would be wonderful to take to a bar-b-que or as a side for burgers, ribs, grilled chicken or even Carne Asada.From "Tasty" by Roy Finamore.
This is from Shelda Green and the San Jose Mercury News Sept. 13, 2006. Green shared a few of her family secrets. First, she pats out the dough on a floured opened brown grocery bag to save on clean up time. Secondly, her family rolls the biscuits thinner, then stack the two circles before baking so that it is easier to add a pat of butter to the finished biscuits. This recipe only uses 3 ingredients which I usually have on hand.
This makes a great salad for a bar-b-que or a side for Mexican food. From "Dona Tomas, Discovering Authentic Mexican Cooking" As all jalapenos are different, you should start with one, and then add until you get it to the heat level of your preference.
