I heard last night on the news that we may get snow tonight. Snow, you know, it looks like this:
I don’t particularly like snow – it’s pretty to look at but terrible to drive in and work in…
So I have come up with a plan and I’m hoping you guys will help me out. I think if we just keep wearing shorts and flip flops and drinking white wine and making salads and acting all easy peasy like it’s summer, maybe we can keep the snow away for a little while?
Hey, it’s worth a shot!
Here’s my favorite late summer salad in case you want to play along:
- 1 cucumber, sliced
- 1 handful cilantro
- 1 bunch salad greens
- ½ C cubed white cheese
- 2 green onions, sliced
- 2 T walnut oil
- 2 T olive oil
- 2 T Sauvignon Blanc
- 2 T white wine vinegar
- juice from one lime
- drop or two of honey
- salt and pepper to taste
- Wash and cut up the greens and add to the salad bowl with the sliced cucumber, white cheese, green onions and chopped cilantro
- Whisk the other ingredients together and drizzle just enough over the salad to make it glisten
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Serve with the balance of the dressing
Anti-snow, late summer salad!
Pour a glass of Sauvignon Blanc and enjoy while wearing shorts and flip flops!
Thank you for your support, I’m a desperate woman.
