Apple and Raisin Salad

A very hot day out there today, with the thermometer reaching a high of around 35C.  I couldn’t go for my regular bike ride today since I got a flat tire last night while on a bike ride. I need Philip to change the tire cause I don’t know how to do that, I guess I should learn how. I went for a 10km run instead early this morning before it came too hot. My very thoughtful Philip came home from work with an inatube for my bike, Yeh! That means a nice bike ride after dinner, again once it cools down.

It was too hot to spend a lot of time in the kitchen today or have any ovens on, so another quick salad was made. Salads are the only thing I want to eat when it’s hot and sticky out. This apple and raisin salad is dressed in a tahini dressing. No nasty mayo or commercial salad dressing used here. This salad can used as a side dish or as a large entree salad.

I used fresh red delicious apples for this salad, you can use other varieties if you like. These were sweet and delicious on their own!
