(ARA) - As summer approaches, you're more in- clined to opt for fresher foods and simpler meals. But lighter fare doesn't mean a boring bed of lettuce. There are plenty of delicious ways to get creative with your leafy greens, making your salad the star of the cookout. Here are a few tips to make your salad worthy of top billing: * Go nuts: Almonds, pecans and walnuts provide How to jazz up your salads fl avor, body and crunch, giving your salad the per- fect boost. Nuts are some of the most versatile salad add-ins, as they go well with both sweet and savory fl avors. Keep re-sealable packs of Fisher(R) Pecan Halves, Walnuts and Slivered Almonds on hand for a fresh and easy addition to any salad. * Sass up your salads: Leafy greens are often the foundation of any salad, but don't forget to add oth- er veggies. Snap peas provide a fresh and delicious crunch, and cucumbers are a cool and refreshing ad- dition during the hottest summer months. * A fruitful effort: Dried or fresh fruits provide Page 15 Food Handlers Classes La Paz County Health Dept. provides Food Handler Classes in Quartzsite. The classes are held on Wednesdays. In December and Janu- ary, the Department adds Friday classes to the schedule. La Paz County Health Regulations require sweet and tart fl avors to complement the more bit- ter varieties of leafy greens, like arugula. Adding something like Fisher Dried Cranberries can really help even out the fl avor of a salad that's heavy on the veggies. Try mixing in dried cranberries and Fisher Chopped Walnuts for a great one-two punch. * Say cheese: The right cheeses provide a rich and savory boost to your salad. Feta works well with a vinaigrette dressing, and freshly shredded Parme- san is a great way to top off almost any salad. * Fire up the grill: Even if you're going lighter with your main course, you can still grill something tasty for your get-together. Beef up your salad with a cut of fi ne meat, marinated in your favorite dressing. Then, drizzle the dressing on your salad too. Try this Grilled Asian Salad from Fisher Nuts and let your salad dressing do double-duty. For more summer recipes, go to For more summer recipes, go to shernuts. com/recipes.
