    The contrasting colours in this salad are appealing to the eye and the subtle combination of flavours is divine. This is a great brunch or lunch dish, and in hot weather a dinner dish that I've found always proves to be popular. It caters so well for those NOT into hot and spicy dishes. Adapted from a recipe on a 'Pan or Wok' recipe card from International Masters.

    Recipe #123077

    This light and refreshing Vietnamese Chicken Salad is really quick to make. It can be eaten alone as a light meal or served as a main meal, over steamed rice. Because I don't like my food too spicy, I omit the chilli, but I've left it in the ingredients listed. Some will no doubt want to increase the spiciness. When serving it to others, I've doubled the recipe and made two versions: one spicy, one not. And been very careful not to mix them up, by putting them in colour-coded serving bowls! Both versions have been eaten with enthusiasm, both by those who are familiar with Vietnamese cuisine and those who are not. Adapted from Lulu Grimes' book "Food: buy it fresh: Cook: cook it simply; Eat: eat it now". If you are serving this salad to guests, and planning ahead, it's worth going to an Asian greengrocer's and buying the authentic ingredients.

    Recipe #121519

    For all sweet potato lovers, a flavoursome salad combining the sweet potato and pecans with bean sprouts and a range of salad greens: celery, celeric, spring onions and endive. The 'cooking time' includes about 25 minutes cooling time. Adapted from "Potatoes and Vegetables" by Parragon Publishing.

    Recipe #118830

    A simple refreshing salad, best made just before serving, and when the ingredients are so few it is obviously essential that those ingredients be first class. If you are unable to find a commercial brand of passionfruit and strawberry dressing, Recipe #97938 sounds delicious.

    Recipe #122182

    A refreshing chilled soup ideal for hot weather luncheons or dinners, which you can have on the table with little preparation. If you are making the soup several hours ahead and the weather is really hot, one option is to chop the orange segments and freeze them in an iceblock tray in some extra orange juice, with chopped mint leaves. Then add an iceblock to each soup bowl when serving. If you want to add some spice, add hot pepper sauce, to taste. Ideally this soup will be chilled for several hours before serving but since most of the ingredients will have come straight out of the fridge, if you don't have much time, 30 minutes chilling time should suffice. Chilling time (passive work time) is included below as the 'cooking time'. For an alternative flavouring, and to give this dish a Mexican twist, use lime juice and zest instead of orange juice and zest, use chilli powder instead of cinnamon and garnish with slices or segments of lime instead of orange. You could also substitute something more Mexican for the wine!

    Recipe #121346

    A flavoursome light soup that is served chilled. A delicious choice for summer dining. It’s ideal before a heavier main course or served for lunch with warm crusty bread rolls. This recipe has been in my Word files for some years. Unfortunately when I first saved it, I did not include any indication of its source. All I know is that it is clearly from an Australian website and that the original recipe was Catherine Saxelby’s. Thank you, Catherine. What I have posted here is my adaptation of Catherine Saxelby’s recipe. I have added several ingredients and changed several others. I’m sure that you will do the same when you make it. I have not, however, tried it as a warm soup, probably because I have only ever made it in summer. Please let me know what it’s like if you DO serve this warm.

    Recipe #121002

    One glance at the ingredients and I just loved the sound of this recipe. When I made it, I was not disappointed. It can be served hot or cold, depending on the time of year, your personal preferences and what else you are serving on the day - or evening. Adapted from Rodale's 'Savory Soups and Stews: 100 Hassle-Free Homemade Meals'.

    Recipe #121373

    If you agree with Lynne Rossetto Kasper’s belief that “the chickpea should be canonized into the food lover’s hall of fame” then you’ll love this delicious, flavoursome and very healthy warm chickpea salad from award-winning vegetarian chef Peter Berley’s book “Fresh Food Fast: Delicious, Seasonal Vegetarian Meals in Under an Hour”. I subscribed to Lynne Rossetto Kasper’s “The Splendid Table” newsletters some time ago, and this is one of many fantastic recipes she has included in her newsletter. The recipes and her tips - which I have included in this posting - are great. I have posted this recipe here exactly as I received it. Because "The Splendid Table” recipes and Lynne’s tips are always SO excellent, I shall post some more of them. I love this recipe, Lynne clearly loves this recipe; I hope that other chickpea lovers will too!
