This is V here: It’s Monday and starting today and ending today we will post a new salad every Monday. And now on to Alice’s recipe:

Fast, super-easy, hearty and full of flavors, this is the perfect salad for the late-summer, early-fall season. Refreshing and satisfying, colorful and elegant, this fruit and vegetable salad works amazingly well as a light lunch but you can certainly serve it at a dinner party, just make sure you prepare it right before serving time as the vegetables -and fruits- can get too soggy. The main components of this dish are typical summer fruits -such as fresh white peaches, figs and raspberries- that are usually eaten on their own or in a fruit salad. Here, I combine them with green beans, rocket and fresh herbs -thyme and chives- and the result is a tasty, sweet and sour salad which is a great feast of tastes and textures, beautiful to look at but also good for your health.

Balsamic vinegar complements all the different fruity and herby flavors.

Sweet & Lushes Chilled Cantaloupe Soup By GreenChef Alice Savorelli

Cantaloupe, cucumber and red peppers all signal the warmest summer weather. I love to eat them as much as possible during their season and this recipe gives a refreshing and unusual way to enjoy all those amazing seasonal fruits and vegetables. I instantly fell in love with this soup when I first made it three years ago, and have been making it regularly during cantaloupe season ever since. Cantaloupe is a very healthy fruit, rich in beta-carotene which turns into anti-ageing and anti-viral Vitamin A once digested. Cucumber is an excellent source of Vitamin C and contains minerals which help the body to rehydrate. Red pepper too is very high in Vitamin C, and packed with bioflavonoids and lycopene. The sweetness of ripe cantaloupe is the key to this delicious cold dish. Characterized by a distinctive spicy-fruity taste, this soup works beautifully on a hot day as an appetizer or as a quick meal. I suggest serving it in chilled bowls. The red pepper cubes add a crunchy, contrasting texture.

As summer approaches, the thoughts of many of us turn to ice cream, one of the most refreshing sweet treats to be enjoyed in warm weather. There are definitely many store-bought non-dairy alternatives to traditional ice cream, which are mainly derived from rice, coconut milk and soy. The best option, however, is probably to make your own healthier batch, so unpack your ice cream maker and get ready to experiment with different textures and flavors.
