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 handful cilantro
1 bunch salad greens
cubed white cheese
2 or 3 green onions
1/8 cup walnut oil
1/8 cup canola oil
1/8 cup Sauvignon Blanc
1/8 cup white wine vinegar – if you don’t want to use the wine just use 1/4 cup white vinegar
juice from one lime
drop or two of honey
Wash and cut up the greens and add to salad bowl with the sliced cucumber and some cubed white cheese – Monterey Jack works well and a few green onions, chopped
Then chop up a handful of cilantro and pile it on top.Â
Whisk together the remaining ingredients
Pour the dressing over the salad and toss lightly and wooolaaa – anti snow late summer salad!
Pour a glass of Sauvignon Blanc and enjoy while wearing shorts and flip flops!
Thank you for your support
Don’t look at me like that, I’m a desperate woman.
