RECIPES: Summer Spinach Salad, Couscous Salad, Cucumber Yogurt Salad

By Rae Udy

Although summer doesn’t officially arrive until June 20, the summer heat is already here. Salads offer a cool reprise from cooking and the fresh greens, vegetables and fruits available in our area add nutrition and color to summer meals.
Summer Spinach Salad contains 150 calories per serving and provides 34 percent of daily value for vitamin A and 19 percent for vitamin C. The combination of fresh spinach, pineapple and dried cherries is refreshing and light for summer.
Couscous Salad is cholesterol free, low in fat and is a very filling dish with only 90 calories per serving. This salad is a good source of fiber with six percent daily value and protein with four percent. Couscous is derived from durum wheat semolina and is a great summer grain because it cooks in just two minutes.
Sometimes the simple and easy salad is the best. Cucumber Yogurt Salad is very low in calories with only 40 per serving, but this salad brings a lot of nutrition to the summer table. This creamy salad is almost fat free with less that two grams in each serving and also is a good source of calcium, protein, potassium and iron.
These salad recipes don’t contain any tomatoes because of the risk of salmonella at this time.
