Summer is also a perfect time to make fruit smoothies. They are refreshing, easily adaptable to ingredients on hand and a healthy option.

Consider taking a smoothie kit to a meal recipient with a diet-limiting disease, swallowing issues, cancer or lack of appetite. Nourishment is important to stay strong during treatment and recovery.

Summer Salad with Strawberries & Greens
  • 4-6 cups mixed greens
  • 1/2 cup shaved ham
  • 1/2 cup Manchego cheese
  • 1/2 cup sliced strawberries
  • 2 tablespoon pecans
  • 2 tablespoon sliced green onions
Layer the greens in a bowl. Next, layer the ham and cheese. Quarter and slice strawberries vertically and spread over top of salad along with the pecans and green onions. The quantities can easily be varied according to taste. Pour citrus vinaigrette over salad just before serving. Serves 4.
The above summer salad recipe is shared from our much-loved, local cafe A Bowl of Good. Its home-cooked meals are available on our website to purchase and send to others to comfort and show you care in a tangible way. The cafe uses as many local, fresh and organic ingredients as possible. When you send a meal, you're sending the best!
I hope your summer is full of sunshine and an abundance of shared conversation around a meal with seasonal, fresh food!
