    This Spanish-Mediterranean vegetable salad is healthy, light, and great for the summer months.

    Recipe #322042

    A must for cool people - or those who like cucumbers! This is a very versatile sandwich spread or dip, which is so easy to whip up at the last minute; it makes VERY elegant sandwiches and is a wonderful accompaniment for smoked salmon, prawns (shrimp) or tuna. I have also used it to spread on savoury scones and crackers. If you plan to make this a day before you need to use it, you might like to salt the cucumbers first - as they do release water into the spread.

    Snagged the base for this recipe from Allrecipes. Now one of my family's FAVORITE pasta salads. And it's healthy to boot!!

    Recipe #387835

    My sister gave me this recipe. She got it from a friend who is originally from Spain and he called it pan tostado. It is important to use vine-ripened tomatoes out of the garden. Store bought tomatoes do not do this recipe justice! If you don't have a garden, only use tomatoes you can get from a farmers market. Everyone I have served this to has requested the recipe - - it's that good!

    Recipe #297331

    When I arrived in Iceland, this was my DH’s 1st food request & I went thru a lot of RZ cucumber salad recipes to be sure it wasn’t a duplicate. Siggi & my sister named this because it was original w/me & because of my twissis internet identity. For best results, don’t make this a dy ahead, but do allow at least 2 hrs for the flavors to blend & the “cream” to develop from the finished ingredient mix. I promise you’ll like this. (Stated time does not include refrigeration time)

    The first time I had this simple salad was in the Negev camping out. It is simple, delicious and even my kids like it.

    Recipe #242619

    This recipe (yeah from an old mag :P) is truly popular in Andalucia and also in Latin America. My mom makes one very similar to this one. It's really good and easy too! Prep. and Cooking times are approximate!

    Great great aunt Jessie copied this one from a paper dated August 18, 1949. It sounds interesting and I may try it on a really hot day when cooking over a stove is not on my top ten "fun things to do" list.

    Of course, you could add meat and cheese of your choice to this sandwich. Mine was concocted to reduce my produce inventory. You won't use all of the mayo. Well, you *could* but golly that would be an odd sandwich.

    Recipe #243004

    Napa was on sale this week so I ended up with more than I could readily include in a stir-fry. I decided to search here to see if it could be used in a cole-slaw or salad but all I came with was a dozen variations of the same recipe that called for ramen noodle. I've had that at pot luck dinners and can't stand it. So here is what I came up with. DS#1 added the pecans -- he's got good taste for a 15yo, hasn't he?

    Recipe #208563

    With a number of diabetics in my husband's family I started serving a green salad at holiday meals to feed the low-carbers. It turned out that everyone enjoys this combination of harvest flavors as a complement to the heavy, starchy traditional Thanksgiving and Christmas sides. It serves a crowd but the quantities are easily adjusted.

    Recipe #197400

    I don't think that bought cole slaw dressing is really satisfactory -- generally too salty and bland. So I messed with recipes until I came up with one we realy enjoy. Being sugarless, its diabetic-friendly as well.

    Recipe #209944

    When I was on WIC I had dried chickpeas rather than canned so I had to adapt the hummus recipe. This basic recipe can be varied by adding black olives, roasted garlic, red peppers, or other ingredients -- just look at the packaged hummus in the deli for inspiration. You can even substitute peanut butter for the more expensive, and sometimes difficult to find, tahini for a budget-friendly variation with a different flavor that some people prefer. It makes a big batch that can be frozen in handy quanities. Best made the day before, but I can never keep my family out of it that long.

    Recipe #214532

    Frozen fruit smoothies are a favorite for the whole family. Why pay an arm and a leg for them when they're so easy to make at home? For an adult variation, try a shot of Captain Morgan on a warm, summer evening after the kids have gone to bed. Tip: Freeze bananas after peeling to save yourself a lot of hassle.

    Recipe #217138

    A delicious cold drink for summertime or anytime. Drinks like this cost a fortune at a coffeehouse, but come out of your blender for pennies a serving. As easy as it is tasty.

    Recipe #221888

    A terrific, portable, one-dish meal made from items you probably have in your pantry and fridge. Good for a packed lunch when you don't want sandwiches (just keep it chilled in the cooler), or good for a cold meal at home on a hot day. Best made the night before.

    Recipe #222660

    Not just one, but 3, distinct flavors from a simple, inexpensive recipe. Kid-friendly and a potluck pleaser. Plain yogurt can be substituted for the mayonnaise if preferred. Lightly sweet, but not dessertish.

    Recipe #223386

    A light, creamy, fruit-filled alternative to milkshakes. Cut the calories, but don't cut the flavor because the goodness comes straight from the real fruit.
