Heat wave part 2: Creamy Lemon Dressing Recipe

We’ve been having unusually hot weather and today is the record at 93 degrees with no wind. I can’t think in this kind of heat, my brain starts to shut down and get sleepy 🙂

Needless to say my house is super hot and I don’t feel like cooking. So we made a salad with a creamy lemon vinaigrette dressing, accompanied by a cool turkey sandwich with cheese and cold tomato slices. For dessert, we had frozen red grapes. They were so cold in my mouth, like little mini Popsicles. They definitely hit the spot.

If you are faced with a heat wave and are faced with making a salad for dinner.

You should definitely try this creamy lemon Dijon vinagrette. It’s cool and lemony fresh tasting, yet surprisingly light and creamy. It would go really well with grilled fish. You won’t be disappointed. The recipe is from:
