Sexy Summer Salad with Dill Dressing
Most salads are pretty sexy in my eyes. I'd get it on with a beautiful salad any day. But this one in particular I have a special love for. The colours, the layout, the flavours, the options. It makes me want to light some candles and slip into something a little more... comfortable.
And you really can't go wrong. Start with a bed of greens and get creative. What do you like? Olives? Put a pile on it. Roasted sweet potatoes? Got for it! Banana's? Why not. Live in the moment. Follow your heart.
Sexy Salad for Two
Boil two medium sized beets. Let them cool, peel off the outer later, and slice it. If someone else is in the room, pretend you cut yourself and the beet stains are blood. It never gets old.
Boil two eggs - Here is my technique my mom showed me when I was a wee one. Fill a small pot with cold water. Add your eggs. Put over high heat until its boiling. Let boil for a couple minutes and then let them sit in the water until it has cooled off. Bueno!
Grate carrots - Pretty straightforward
Slice an avocado and cute mini tomatoes - See above
Create! - Put it all on a big plate and make it the most beautiful thing you ever laid eyes on.
Honestly, making dressing is more of 'a little o this, a little o that' expirement everytime but Ill try to get as close to measurements as possible.
4 tbsp olive oil
4 tbsp apple cider vinegar
1/2 tsp dijon mustart
solid 2 pinches of sea salt and pepper
2 tbsp chopped fresh dill
Why is dill so damn good in salads? It just is.
So go on, put on something sexy and have some alone time with your salad.
