The refrigerator light goes on...

In the summer heat it can be tough to make yourself fire up the range or oven and cook. Simple salads like this one can be a quick and easy way to a great meal with leftovers for sandwiches at lunch.

Most of the wasabi paste sold in the U.S. is actually horseradish with added spices and green food coloring. If you can't find wasabi paste, use an equal amount of horseradish. If you like your food a bit spicier, add a few extra teaspoons.
