Fresh Mint Kisses

Oh-so-simple, tasty, and gluten-free — it’s hard to beat these airy meringue cookies. Furthermore, they are guilt-free — According to Cooking Light magazine, they have only 31 calories per serving. Pair them with ice cream to dress up a simple dinner, or make them a few days ahead for a special occasion. Delicious as a “base” for chopped, sugared fruit such as strawberries, raspberries, or peaches.

Fresh Tomato Salsa With Papalo

Papalo (“Pop-ah-low”) is the uniquely flavored “secret ingredient” in classic Central and South American tomato salsas. An assertive herb, it lends a flavor similar to cilantro plus lime. Try it wherever you’d use those flavors, such as this simple salsa recipe from the interesting site, Every post in this blog is a green living “How To” that can be applied to your own life. The primary focus is local food and growing in the varied altitudes of the southeastern mountains and foothills.

Frozen Mint Lemonade

Quick and easy, and enjoyed by all ages. This is a great healthy alternative to those frozen slushies with their artificial colors and flavors. (For an adults-only party, it also makes a great cocktail; just add 2 oz. of vodka or rum.)

Great Grated Zucchini

Zucchini grow fast! If one gets a bit too large for serving in the usual ways, don’t toss it! As long as the skin is still shiny (not dull), it’s still good to eat! Grating zucchini gives it a new taste and a different texture. Baked in the oven and mixed with sour cream, this easy dish is crisp and appealing.

Greek Kale Salad with Pita Wedges

A delicious way to serve cooked greens in the summer… posted this recipe online back in 2009, noting that “this would be a good recipe for people who haven’t yet fallen in love with kale. The strong flavors of the feta and olives, combined with the acid of the lemon juice, set the kale’s flavor to the background.” You can cook the kale early if you wish, but dress the salad just before serving it, because the flavors are freshest then.

Servings: About 4, depending on their appetites

Grilled Okra and Tomatoes

A very simple, delicious alternative to fat-laden fried okra, this recipe is especially good for those nights when you are grilling other items for supper. Make your life easier, though, and if you don’t have a grill basket, go get one immediately. You’ll be surprised to find how much more often you grill veggies if you never have to deal with them falling through and going up in flames!

Homemade Granola

Making up a batch of this healthy staple today, as I have more or less continuously since the 1970s, it occurred to me that I should share the recipe.

This is one of our family’s staples for breakfast (mixed with homemade yogurt and topped with a pile of chopped fresh fruits), and makes a tasty,healthy topping for cobblers and pies… It’s very adaptable, easy to whip together, and a good source of vitamins, fiber, and heart-healthy fats. (The wheat germ adds vitamin E and folic acid, but for a gluten-free variation, it can simply be eliminated without affecting the final product. Just reduce the hot water to 1/4 c.)

The amounts may seem large, but they work out to use entire packages of things if you don’t have a way to buy them in bulk, and the recipe makes just enough granola to fill two 13×9 pans for toasting it, thus using the oven most efficiently. Don’t worry, the granola stores beautifully, but it’s also yummy and will go fast!
