    Banana and celery

    • Shred a few lettuce leaves finely.

    • Slice one or two bananas very thinly.

    • Soak the bananas in the juice of a lemon, with a little water, for about 5 minutes.

    • Slice a couple of sticks of celery finely.

    • Drain and dry the bananas, and add them to the shredded lettuce and celery.

    • Mix chopped chives with ¼ cup yogurt. Add a little black pepper to taste.

    • Mix in the banana, celery and lettuce.

    Coleslaw with pineapple

    • Shred ¼ small green cabbage finely.

    • Cut 2 celery sticks into thin slices.

    • Cut a small red onion or shallot into thin slices.

    • Drain a 225 g can of pineapple pieces.

    • Arrange half a cup or more of walnuts on an oven tray, and bake in a moderate oven for about 5 minutes until toasted.

    • Mix the cabbage, celery, onion, and pineapple. Add salt and pepper to taste.

    • Combine ¼ cup mayonnaise and about 2 Tbsp sour cream for dressing.

    • Add the walnuts to the salad, and pour just enough of the dressing to coat the salad lightly
