    I know this is kind of the opposite of what you are asking for, but in hot countries like india there's a reason they have hot curries....

    It cools you down.

      Just the other day I made cole slaw with olive oil and apple cider vinegar using more vinegar than you would for a normal vinaigrette (maybe half and half) plus salt pepper and whatever. Leave it in the fridge overnight so the cabbage absorbs more of the vinegar. It came out good though next time I'll try with less oil.

            I am working my way through the paleo selections of Mark Bittmans 100 summer salads:

            http://www.nytimes.com/2009/07/22/di...pagewanted=all

            So far almost all of them have been amazing. I had a watermelon, feta, pastachio salad last night that was amazing - it had pickled red onions and a balsamic reduction. I also made the carrot salad from the list....really good!

              Looks super delicious. Must be good because I am drooling and I don't think vegans drool...

                  I thought that was to preserve the food longer?
