Hump Day Afternoon Delight: Two Fruity Salads to Toss!

When you are finished here, don't forget to sign up for our second giveaway; a free copy of Company's Coming Rush Hour Recipes! You have until 5pm on May 25th to enter!

No more cakes for you!  Just kidding about that, but seriously, today we aren't doing a cake recipe.  It's hot today and I didn't want to post something that required anyone to turn an oven on.  Once again (you know this spiel if you are a regular around here) today's recipe comes from one of the most amazing and creative people ever, Miranda Crane.  Back in 2008 Miranda created my favorite Livejournal Community ever, arty_chokes, which is a community for step-by-step vegetarian recipes.  The community has sadly been dormant for quite some time, but both Miranda and myself are hoping it will make a comeback with a little bit of pimping.  With Miranda's permission, over the next few weeks I'm going to feature some of her personal top recipes from arty_chokes here at Aias Dot Ca.   If you have a Livejournal, please check the community out and participate in raising it from the dead! Additionally, if you love this recipe and you love pictures of tasty food, please check out Miranda's Flickr where she posts images of her food as well as the recipes!

So without further delay I present to you:

I've adopted the same commenting policy as seen here at Off Beat Mama ( I won't post comments if they strike me as attacking, judgmental, rude, or unproductive. In general if you are willing to put your name to something, I'll post it, but remember to keep your words sweet, because someday you may have to eat them.
