No Croutons Required - August Challenge

August is here and it's time for another challenge. It gets harder and harder to come up with new challenges for you, but after a bit of thought I have one for you. A real humdinger!

No Croutons Required
August 2012

Coconuts!


 
What I would like you to do is come up with a soup or salad containing coconut.

Coconut milk, coconut oil or even dessicated coconut. How will you add it? Will you use some coconut milk to calm the spices in your soup, finish your soup with a sprinkling of dessicated coconut or perhaps use some coconut oil in a salad dressing. It is entirely up to you. I cannot wait to see what you come up with.

Once more I am opening a linky at the end of this post.

Post your recipe, linking back here. You may add the logo. Then add your soup or salad to the linky. Remember all soups and salads must be suitable for vegetarians. You have until the 20th of August to add your dish to the linky.

Good luck everyone!

Before I go, I would like to send a big congratulations out to Michelle of The Tiffin Box, who won last month's challenge with this beautiful green Home Grown Parsley and Potato Soup. As well as our awe, Michelle wins a cute little winner's badge for her blog.

    1. You might have just got away with them as a salad dish Helene, if you added them to a salad.
