Dang! It’s HOT! What in the world happened?! Last week I was all like, hey, where’s summer… this sucks… I can’t believe I’m cold…

Now I’m all like, dang it’s hot… this sucks… I can’t believe it’s so hot…


Other than sippin’ on gin and juice Strawberry Pom Mojitos this entire week, I have also been eating lots, and I mean LOTS, of salads.

Would you care to try a Chunky Chicken Salad? That’s my going-to-a-bbq-gotta-bring-mah-salad, salad.

And this Potato Salad. I bring this one to parties just as often.

However, this past week it made it to our dinner menu. Alone. We had nothing else but this. With a side of mojitos. My husband and I, two forks, and a big bowl of our garden vegetables tossed with some potatoes. It was DY-NO-MITE!

You know what I found to be incredibly cool? I went to this amazing Spanish restaurant, Don Quijote in Valparaiso, Indiana, and this almost exact salad was on the chef’s Tapas menu! If you are from around the Northwest Indiana area, or just passing through, go to Don Quijote – it is beyond fabulous. The food is incredible and the people are just plain awesome.

I have one favorite thing about this salad. It’s cold. As in chilled. I LOVE that! Because I like to add the dressing before I put it in the fridge, the vegetables soften up just a tad bit, and their flavor is heightened by a thousand percent! It’s SO! good!

So the plan here is to use up some of your garden vegetables, or just hop to the nearest farmer’s market and load up on tomatoes, potatoes, onions, and the whole shabang. Then, come home and prepare this salad. It’s the weekend. DO IT! Cut up a french baguette and go to town with it. We did. 🙂

    Mojitos and this for dinner? Sign me up! Love simple, fresh, flavorful dinners like this. Plus then I have more room for dessert!

  4. Hehe I’m also a weather-whiner. But, I never complain about air conditioning, so there’s that. 😉

    Love your photos, btw. Sigh. 🙂

  5. It’s so hot I’m almost not even hungry anymore! (Almost.) I could inhale light, luscious salads like this all day long – followed by several strawberry mojitos. 😀

  6. Stay cool! Love this salad-looks like the perfect dinner for me and with a piece of meat for the hubs!
