California Summer Salad

Adapted from LaRue Pack Named by Kyle Larsen 6-8 c Mixed Greens 2 cans Mandarin Oranges (drain well) 1/2 c Cranberries 1 c Grapes (sliced in half) 1/3 c Pecans 1/4 c Diced Red Onion Bacon- crumbled (optional) Dressing: 1/2 c Mayo 1/2 c Honey 1/4 c Orange Juice 2 TBS Orange Peel Zest

Harvest Muffins

MIX WELL: 4 cups Shredded Apples (Peel if you wish, de-core first) 1 c Shredded Carrots 1 c Coconut 1-2 c "Raisens" {you can be very creative with this portion.  And it's very forgiving whether you use 1 cup or up to 2 cups....but some options for ingredients in an amount and combination are: craisins, raisins, flax seeds, sunflower seeds, walnuts, pecans, almonds, wheat germ, dried blueberries, or in my case, more coconut!  I have found that CHOCOLATE CHIPS, unfortunately, DO NOT taste so great with this recipe, but if you must, go for it. Just know you've been forewarned.} THEN ADD: 4 cups Flour (Wheat, White or a combination is fine.) 2 c Sugar 4 tsp Baking Soda (or 1 1/3 TBS) 1 tsp Salt 1 TBS Cinnamon 1TBS Cloves  AND LASTLY ADD: 1 1/2 c Oil 1/2 c Milk 1 TBS Vanilla 3 Beaten Eggs Fill greased or lined (reg or mini- although mini only bake for 12-14 min) muffin tins 3/4 full and bake at 350* for 20-25 minutes.
