 Since the hot weather appeared last week, I have been digging out those
 great recipes I use during the summer and thought I would share them
 again for those who hadn't seen them:
 Summer Basil Salad
 serves:	12 as a side dish
 	 6 as a main dish
   1/2	cup sweet rice vinegar
 3	teaspoons sugar (or sugar substitute)
 2	teaspoons dijon mustard
 1 1/2 	teaspoon salt (optional)
 2	cloves minced garlic
 	pepper to taste
 Salad Fixin's:
   1/2	cup chopped green onions
   1/2	cup chopped green, yellow or red sweet peppers
   1/2	cup lightly steamed and cooled green beans or asparagus
   1/2	cup chopped carrot
   1/2	cup chopped zuchini
 	(feel free to use any veggies on hand for the above)
   3/4	cup golden raisins (do not substitute
   1/2	cup or more finely chopped fresh basil
 	(I love basil and use a lot!)
   1/2	cup chopped fresh parsley
 Carbs:	Use any of the following, depending on how "McDougall-correct"
 	(I've been learning a lot from you Barbara Z!) you want to be.
 16	ounces dry fusilli (or any pasta, whole wheat is fine) boiled
  1	cup dry brown rice, cooked (don't know how much it makes cooked)
 	combined with:  1 cup dry couscous (soak for 20 minutes in 1 1/3
 	cups boiling water)
 	-or, combine with any other grains such as quinoa, barley,  or
 	whatever you like
 	-I think this would also be delicious and nutritious if beans
 	(white, garbanzos, black) were added to the pasta or grains-use
 	your imagination and let me know how it goes!
