We are at the beginning of August and some of you may have lots of veggies in your garden. Even if you do not have a garden, the supermarkets offer a wide range of fresh local produce. This Summer Garden Salad recipe may give you inspiration, on how to blend them together and create a delicious meal. And of course, you can use other veggies, or fruits instead of the ones that I am using. It will be perfectly fine.

I personally decided to add some fresh figs for change, but you can try other fruits as well. However, they go well with the tasty cashew cheese that is so easy to make. You may also like the VEGAN GREEK SALAD with ALMOND FETA if you are a Mediterranian cuisine lover. They are both delicious and highly satisfying. Especially with some roasted potatoes or a slice of whole-grain sourdough bread.
