Help me, I’m melting!
When it’s too hot to cook, enjoy a refreshing salad! I like to use a variety of lettuces and add whatever I have available in the fridge. Onions, tomatoes, carrots, and beets are common additions. I also like to use chopped fruits like apples, pears, oranges and dates. Sometimes I’ll add a half cup of beans or chickpeas, other times I’ll chop up leftover meats and hard boiled eggs.
When I have room in the fridge, I’ll rinse and spin my greens dry and store them right in the spinner. Other times I’ll wrap them loosely with a towel and pack them into a large plastic bag without closing the top. Many of the fixings can be chopped and stored ahead of time, too.
I’ve made my own dressings for quite a while now. One of the simplest is just a drizzle of olive oil followed by a drizzle of vinegar. The people at Fix.com have provided this infographic to help us prepare our own DIY salad dressings at home.
