It’s hot here. Like, seriously HOT. Summer and I don’t get along too well and this is precisely the reason.
The heat and humidity has me sweating during the walk from my apartment to my car (hint: it’s not that long). I am thirsty and groggy and cranky. General lethargy and a disdain for all things warm, and I’ve got only one solution: no-cook meals.
So tonight I started off with a bang and a fridge full of salad ingredients. I chopped up carrots, celery, red onion, bell pepper and crisp apple, all ready for throwing on top of salads.
I also hard-boiled some eggs for easy salad making.
Man, this salad really hit the spot.
I dressed it with olive oil, lemon juice, honey and salt and pepper. Crunchy, crisp, hydrating and, best of all, COLD.
I think we’ll be seeing a lot more salads in the next few days.
