On the other hand, tonight we had a very nice "hot weather" salad for dinner.
Food is always a good subject for a post!

We had a lovely smoked whitefish as the main course, and I had planned to make a coleslaw, but then remembered I had a cauliflower in the crisper. I did a Google search and came up with this raw cauliflower salad from the Tasty Kitchen.
As usual I didn't have everything the recipe called for, but with some substitutions I came up with my own version.
If you check out the recipe, this is what I changed. I didn't have fresh parsley, so I substituted fresh cilantro. I didn't have any sun-dried tomatoes, so I tossed in a handful of golden raisins. I also had some fresh corn on the cob, so I stripped the kernels from one and added them. Raw sweet corn is really good. Finally, I didn't have a fresh lemon, so I used bottled lemon juice and some dried lemon zest. Much like this ...

I love the expression: "Cooking is an art, baking is a science." I rarely mess with a baking recipe. But I did today. I made a yummy loaf of rye bread in the bread machine, and added extra caraway seeds for more flavor.
