It's time for the annual heat wave, folks! Which means it's time to think about food that doesn't heat up the house. The Market can help.
And I don't just mean ready-made food, though there's that:
|Beef Picadillo was a-w-e-s-o-m-e|
|A cool soup, paired with salad?|
And then there's the pizza, the falafel, the hum baos, and other food trucks, of course.
But supposing you wanted to have guests over? We recently had a surprise guest roll into town, and I wanted to share our Market-Fresh dinner menu with you, with all Market-available items marked with an asterisk (*).
|They're promising another shipment...|
I'll leave you with the salad dressing I adapted from an Allrecipes version. It's delicious for summer salads because it pairs well with fruit/greens combinations.
Summer Salad Dressing
2 Tbsp sesame seeds (toasted, if you like)
1 tsp poppy seeds
1/4 cup honey*
1/2 cup olive oil or hazelnut oil*
1/4 cup rice or apple cider vinegar
1/4 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 Tbsp minced fresh onion*
For Spinach-Strawberry Salad, blend and serve over
10 ozs fresh spinach or greens of your choice*
1 cup sliced strawberries*
1/4 cup sliced almonds or hazelnuts*
1/2 avocado, cut in chunks
2 green onions, chopped*
Have a great week and keep cool! As a P.S., I did get around to reading Wheat Belly and will give my report at a later date. In the meantime, suffice to say we will continue to eat wheat products in the UrbanFarmJunkie household...
