Here is a yummy recipe. It is so light and refreshing. A terrific summer salad.
4 small roma tomatoes
2 cucumbers, peeled (unless you grow them yourself, then leave the peels on)
3 green onions
1/2 c. parsley
1/4 c. fresh mint leaves
1/4 c chopped fresh dill
3-4 T olive oil
juice of 1 lemon
Finely chop the vegetables (or leave as chunky as you like) and mix with other ingredients. Great at room temp. Can also add a little garlic if you want. Also, almost forgot to mention, that I really enjoy adding a little chopped bell pepper. You choose the color.

Kelly - what are doing up so early? Don't you believe in sleeping, or are you up staring at your dh again? I got your message and I am SO glad he is OK. What an ordeal, and what a blessing that he is OK and they caught the other men.
So, this is the recipe you told me about the other day! I can't wait to try it. Sounds really yummy! Do you think it would be OK with lemon balm instead of mint? I haven't planted my mint yet, but I have lots of lemon balm. I have a feeling though, that the mint in the recipe is what makes it really zing!
Talk to you soon.

Anna, you crack me up! :p I have read that you don't need as much sleep on this raw food diet and they were right! I just wake up and am ready to go! Hubby decided he would go into work at 4:30 this morning and wanted some of Rawkinlocs Oatmeal. So I had the appliances whirring and blending early. I actually woke up before the birds outside!
Yes, this is the recipe I told you about. I really like it. I have not tried it with anything other than mint. But I LOVE mint. If you need some mint, let me know and I'll give you some cuttings from mine when I see ya in a couple of weeks.
BTW, everyone is asking me to bring your Cranberry Almond salad again tomorrow. So I will be putting that together.
Hope you had a great anniversary picnic! And Rivkah told me that you two had talked. THANK YOU!!!! You are such a blessing. :)
Jan, you are most welcome for the recipe. It really is beautiful and refreshing.

Here is a picture of what you can expect this to look like.

Now in my cooked days :rolleyes: this stuff was heaven with falafel. So if you have a raw falafel recipe that you like, I would HIGHLY recommend eating the two together.
Oh dear, I think I am starting to drool! :p

I'm blushing Kelly - stop it! :o
That is one of my favorite recipes. When I make it, I make a ton of it because it is very filling and really seems to hit the spot. In fact, I may make some this afternoon.
The other reason it is one of my favorites is because I developed the recipe while my six-year old and I were "cooking" one afternoon. It is a very fond memory.
Glad you like it - enjoy!

My daughter in law is Israeli, and when she finally got a visa to come here last October, the first thing in the morning, she's out there in the kitchen chopping stuff up and whatnot...
So I asked her, hey, watcha doing, it's not lunchtime yet! (oh boy, I'm thinking back on that and my verdict is I must have sounded like such a jerk...*sigh*...she forgave me anyway)
She explained that in Israel, everybody eats these huge salads for breakfast. Well, we get along just dandy, since I'm a raw/living foods lifestyle person and she's into healthy stuff too.
Plus my son is SO lucky to have someone care enough about him to get up and make these wonderful, delicious salads for him every day! And he noticed that he's getting much healthier, too.
Thanks for the great post!

Thanks for sharing that recipe. I am sure that will be one we'll use alot.
P.S. Anna, Love your new look!

That just looks sooo delicous!!!
Is there an incredible recipe for raw falafel? I love that stuff! Is that considered Israeli? I have only had it in Greek restaurants. Then again, I don't see too many Israeli restaurants around here...
I love Israel, and am very much hoping to go some day....
I am taking a ministry internship, and our first two classes were dedicated to learning about Israel, it is was pretty awesome stuff!! Blessed people!!

Alissa's falafel is pretty good. I did have it in Israel and it was good there too (of course) but she definitely gives them a run for the money. In fact it was so good that some of it didn't make it all the way through being dehydrated - we ate it "raw".
Anyway, Israel is a great place to visit. I hope you make it there sometime.
