french fries?!?!? -- & cold foods for hot climates

I hesitate to bring this up for fear of being called a party pooper, but
this discussion of french fries is not really appropriate on a fatfree list.

For our friends downunder-- I like cold grain and bean salads.  They do
require some heat in the coking of the grains, but that is minimal.  Here
are a couple favorites.

Black beans and Corn Salad (amounts approximate, feel free to wing it)

3 cups cooked black beans
2 cups corn
chopped red onion
chopped tomatoes if you like
chopped bell peppers, use various colors for eye appeal
1 - 2 teaspoons ground cumin
toss with seasoned rice vinegar to taste

Rice and Pea salad

3 cups cooked rice (I prefer brown long grain for this)
2 - 3 cups frozen petite peas
1 cup sliced celery
1-  6 ounce can slices water chestnuts
a grated carrot or two
toss with seasoned rice vinegar

And of course tabbouleh,
I like to make it wiht plenty of chick peas, fresh tomatoes, onions,
parsley, and whatever strikes my fancy, maybe some artichoke hearts.  Dress
with lemon juice.
