Happy First Day of Summer everyone! Woohoo! I have officially gone into full summer food mode. I want nothin’ to do with soups and stews, give me salads and bbq. The warm weather we’ve been having has been helping my plants along as well. I’ve already picked a few little strawberries. I tell ya, there are few things better than biting into a warm, freshly picked strawberry. Yum! My peppers, squash, and zucchini are coming along as well. So exciting to watch them grow.
So because it’s so gloriously warm and sunny outside, and I doubt any of y’all want to make soups and stews right now either, I’m going to share today another great salad dressing recipe. I’ve been experimenting with salad dressings for a few months now, and this is one of the best I’ve made so far. I jotted down the recipe a long time ago from a little cookbook of my mom’s called Wesson Down-Home Cooking and am wondering now why I took so long to make it. True to its name, I think this dressing would be great on more than just a garden salad. It would go great with pasta salad or potato salad as well. Maybe even as a marinade. Whatever you choose, I think you’ll really like this dressing! 🙂
