Summer Salad Mania!

I’ve been making bunches of salads so that we don’t have to keep cooking in this deadly heat. I wrote the recipes for these three delicious yumminesses up. They’re so lovely and tasty and light and you only have to heat up the kitchen once.

Summer Salad Mania (PDF) contains Summer Noodle Salad, Curry Rice Salad, and Mom’s Cucumber Salad.

PS: I’ve corrected a typo, an error, and clarified some things since this was first posted. I need a recipe tech editor, pronto!

PPS: The HBO documentary, Roman Polanski: Wanted and Desired was so good! I can’t wait to see what the rest of the summer’s documentary films are like.

    Oooh those sound really good! Thanks for sharing your recipes. I make your black beans & rice with corn salsa quite often. My family loves it!

    Oooh, these sound delicious! Thanks for sharing. I’m going to send my husband a link here, since he’s stuck at home in the middle of a heatwave, the poor boy.

    Thanks for sharing, these sound yummy! If it ever gets warm here, I may actually try them out…

    BTW, there isn’t a unit of measurement for the sugar in the first salad. It could be helpful, especially for an ingredient like sugar :)

    Ca’t wait to sample your salads! Thank you for sharing them – and for the tip on the Polanski film, I’ve been so curious.

    This is great! I’ve been thinking of making weekly salad recipe posts, since I’m eating a lot of salads these days and the season is here. We could start a movement!

    YUM! I saw this when it came up on Flickr. I practically live on pickled cukes in the summer. Only fresh tomatoes are better. Thanks for the recipes. I’ll definitely give them a try this week!

    Ooooh, those look tasty! I had an excellent cucumber salad when I was staying with a German family once. Still haven’t ever tried my hand at it myself, so maybe now is the timen to give it a go?

    At the bottom though, you’ve written that the Curry Rice Salad was adapted from two websites. Was one of them supposed to be for the Summer Noodle Salad?

    Thanks for sharing. We tried your mum’s cucumber salad yesterday and everyone enjoyed it. I think the other two are going to be great for packed lunches.

    I just tried the Summer Noodle Salad last night and it was quite yummy. I was going to note about the measurement for sugar, but I see someone else beat me to it. I used 1 tbsp instead and it turned out quite nice. Also, the cucumbers were quite good in it. The overall flavor reminded me me of Japanese hiyashi chuka.

    The salads look really great! Just the ticket for days when it is too hot to fire up an oven!
