This is a simple and healthy dessert. Adapted from Living and Raw Foods.

Recipe #202314

An easy no-cook desert I found on GREAT for summer months. I have yet to come across "greek style" yogurt so I sub lowfat plain yogurt instead or use vanilla flavored yogurt and skip the sugar all together. Have fun and experiment!!

Somen are very fine Japanese wheat noodles, finer than vermicelli. Look for them in the Asian section of your grocery or at an Asian market. This makes a refreshing lunch or light supper on a hot summer day. You can add cooked, deveined, peeled shrimp if you wish (cut larger shrimp in half). Other suggestion include dried shiitake simmered in equal parts soy sauce and mirin (Japanese sweet rice cooking wine), and watercress or trefoil (a Japanese green somewhat similar to watercress). The dipping sauce is best if made the day before, but it is still good if made the same day. This recipe comes from Shizuo Tsuji's 'Japanese Cooking: A Simple Art', which I highly recommend to anyone interested in traditional Japanese cooking.

Recipe #177974

Great for summer picnics. For easy shopping, I've generally found that 1 cantaloupe and 1 honeydew provide six cups. I usually peel the cucumbers, or if I leave them out because Cathy doesn't like them, sometimes I add apples instead. If it's hard to find a thai chile, at least try to find a red one for visual appeal, but the chiles are pretty switchable.

The lemon and blackberries are really good together, and the colors look nice together. You could use blueberries or raspberries too. I don't really know why this is called a souffle, it is more like a frozen dessert, not quite ice cream, but similar.

Recipe #176839

The perfect summer treat...and you don't even need an ice cream freezer! Fun for kids- they can all make their own, anytime!

Recipe #103540

Crunchy vegetables pair with hoisin-seasoned chicken in this refreshing appetizer. You can make the sauce and chicken mixture a few hours ahead, but assemble the rolls just before serving so they don't dry out.

Recipe #154939

This is a refreshing change from a plain old fruit salad or fruit tray. This goes wonderfully with Mexican food.

Recipe #175635

This is another best seller at my Farmer's Market. So easy to make, and so easy to keep needed ingredients on hand.

Recipe #175832

This is one of my favorite pasta dishes, and so easy. You may need to add more vinegar to taste.

Shrimp, Chickpea, and Mint Salad with Chile Dressing from Italian Salads

Recipe #175917

A simple salad.

Recipe #172618

These are fabulous starters - an explosion of flavour modified from a recipe by the Spirit House restaurant and Cooking School. If you cannot obtain betel leaves (cha plu) you can use baby spinach or butter lettuce leaves.

Recipe #143937

This has been posted for ZWT II. Found on the net, Mark Twain was quoted as saying "New Orleans food is as delicious as the less criminal forms of sin." The dish was further described - “This has become a modern classic appetizer in New Orleans, having originated at the Upperline Restaurant Uptown, then appeared at Uglesich's & spread to points beyond. It's simple, really -- just adding 1 ingredient to the classic Shrimp Remoulade, but it makes a big difference. Cool salad, cool & tangy sauce & shrimp, over piping hot & crunchy fried green tomatoes. This is New Orleans w/a touch of the Deep South & a hint of Creole-Italian. That’s a beautiful thing.” My recipe source was & it would be nice to think this “form of sin” survived. (Times were not specified, so have been estimated)

Recipe #169732

These are the Fried Green Tomatoes right from the motion picture, "Fried Green Tomatoes At The Whistle Stop Cafe". They are ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS!!!

Recipe #80750

A great summer salad that is sweet and tart with a touch of heat. I prefer this chilled as I like the coolness to go with the spicy, but it can be served at room temperature. I got this from a cookbook that I have since lost, but it is a very easy recipe to remember. Time includes all prep, cooking and standing time, but not chill time.

Recipe #168560

Now with Vodka! Freeze time not included.

Recipe #168020

BLFGT: Bacon, Lettuce, Fried Green Tomato Yes, there really is a Whistle Stop Cafe from the movie "Fried Green Tomatoes". It is pretty much like the movie portrays it, a Southern cafe with really authentic fare, and some of the best fried green tomatoes ever. I came across this when looking for fried green tomato recipes without much cornmeal. It sparked my interest, so I thought I'd share it with my Zaar friends. Looks like a lot of work, but well worth the time.
