The recipe this week is perfect for summer. It is an old recipe that I found in one of my grandmother’s old cookbooks. It is called Farmer’s Salad. It is creamy, cool and delicious. It makes the perfect light lunch or supper for these hot summer days that are right around the corner.

“And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.” 2 Corinthians 9:8
