Just in case any of you are looking for more recipes for your July Fourth celebrations, here are some wonderful dishes from several of my favorite food bloggers:

Veggie Dishes/Salads
Cucumber and Red Onion Salad

Main Dishes
Grilled Salmon with Sun-Dried Tomato, Olive, Caper, and Parsley Relish
from Kalyn’s Kitchen

I must confess, since it’s summer and the hot weather has finally set in, I’ve been doing a lot of raw eating, that’s what inspired me to add the lovely recipe above from Brigitte Mars.  On really hot days, I make a raw blender salad in my vitamix with greens from my garden, avocado and nuts.  I’m loving eating this way while the weather is warm and my digestive fires are high.

I hope you all have a lovely Fourth of July and enjoy the weekend!

    This is a fabulous variety of dishes. We’ve been eating raw as much as possible, too. Texas heat has been over 100 every day…keeping the kitchen cool has been high on our priority list.
