Summer = Salad
We've had some wonderful summer weather here these past few days - blue skies, sunny and temperatures soaring. I managed to get a fairly nasty sunburn on my upper arms last Friday, but it's fading now. My freckles are bursting out so fast you can almost see it happening. Anyway, when it's this warm, there's no way I'm turning on the stove to actually cook.
And neither was the case when we were visiting friends over the weekend, and instead Helmy made this wonderful salad for us. Isn't it beautiful? It has leaves of Maché and Lollo Rosso, tomatoes, yellow bellpeppers, avocado, red onion, yellow zucchini and a really lovely feta cheese with sundried tomatoes. With this, she served an amazing herb omelet, and a basil vinaigrette. Food at their house is always wonderful, and this certainly was no exception.
It'll be a lot of salads these coming months, I think. Tonight, we're making the crawfish bulgur again, it's one of the dishes we're both craving almost constantly.
