Woof! It’s so hot outside! After a weekend full of rain and
thunderstorms, the sun is finally shining through (the world blazing
also comes to mind). I mentioned before that Mother loves trying raw
recipes when the weather warms up. She also enjoys making salads with fresh fruits and nuts. I love the smell of oranges in the summer! Makes me think of Florida’s sunshine and warm, tropical islands.
Note: This recipe contains raisins, which are extremely toxic to cats and dogs.
1 cup tofu mayonnaise
1 Tbsp agave syrup
1 pound extra firm tofu, cut into 1 inch cubes
3 celery stalks, chopped
1/4 cup dark raisins
1/4 cup golden raisins
2 red delicious apples, cored and chopped
1 orange, peeled, sectioned and cut into chunks
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
Using a wire whisk or blender, mix the mayo and honey until smooth.
Place the tofu, vegetables, fruits and nuts into a salad bowl and pour dressing over.
Toss very gently and chill for at least 45 minutes before serving.
