After being so chilly for so long, it’s suddenly insanely hot and sunny here. Yesterday, we were trying to think of what to have for dinner that would require as little cooking as possible. And we remembered about chicken salad with grapes and toasted almonds.
We just happened to have chicken left over from a barbecued butterflied chicken from a couple of evenings before. So we went to our favourite vegetable store and got some red leaf lettuce, the largest green onions you’ve ever seen, a small brilliantly red sweet pepper and some grape tomatoes. With fresh tarragon, marjoram and thyme from the garden as well as crusty Italian bread, the dinner was exactly what the doctor ordered for the sultry night.
And because the green onions were so giant, we still have plenty of green onions. T is going to make jerk sauce today for Jerk pork tonight. Hmmm, maybe hot weather isn’t so bad after all.
