This light and tangy salad will wow your friends with its fresh Mediterranean flavours. It lasts a few days in the fridge so you can make it in advance and bring it to a cottage. I used quinoa as the gluten-free base for this dish making it protein-packed so it will keep you and your friends feeling satisfied.

I love making raw cheesecakes in the summer and this one is perfect for Canada Day. It is made with a chewy gluten-free date and pecan base that is topped with creamy vegan raspberry cashew cream cheese that tastes just like the real thing.

I created this recipe for Clean Eating Magazine, you can find it here.

Long weekends are a great time to get together and share yummy food with your friends and family. If you are looking for even more healthy Canada Day recipes, you will love this post I shared a few years ago.
