Earth laughs in flowers... Ralph Waldo Emerson

A man can no more diminish God's glory by refusing to worship Him than a lunatic can put out the sun by scribbling the word, 'darkness' on the walls of his cell.

Summer Salad Saturday!!!


Fresh Crab in Vinaigrette Salad

8 oz (225 g) mixed prepared crab meat (this is using 2 half-shells)

4 small cornichons (Continental gherkins), finely chopped

1 tablespoon capers, drained and chopped (or, if they're small, leave them whole)

1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh coriander leaves

finely grated zest 1 lime

2 tablespoons fresh lime juice

1 shallot, finely chopped

1 tablespoon white wine

1 tablespoon light olive oil

a few drops Tabasco sauce

salt and freshly milled black pepper

To garnish:

a few crisp salad leaves or some watercress

It couldn't be simpler: all you do is combine all the ingredients in a bowl, then divide the

mixture into two. Take each quantity, pile it on a plate and use your hands to form it into

a round, flattened shape about ½ inch (1 cm) high. Garnish with some crisp salad leaves

or watercress all round.

Lots of Love!!!
