We've had our heat wave. It was so hot that at first I mistakenly thought my tomato plants were simply hot and thirsty.
What you want is something quick and easy during these dog days of summer.
This one is very easy and permits you to take two staples ( I think it's a great idea to make these, the yogurt, the broccoli,and the bread on Sunday for the work week) the oven roasted tomatoes* and the roasted portabello mushrooms for a tasty meal Yes. I will show you how to use the other staples in meals.
Quick Salad for the Hot and Hungry
1 to 2 mushrooms per person
3 to 4 oven roasted tomatoes per person
2 handfuls of salad greens (your choice, lettuce, spinach, kale, chard, etc)
Add, as you have at hand, other vegetables, I like fresh corn, dried cranberries, and olives but anything works here.
Toss all ingredients, except the mushrooms. Divide salad onto plates and top with mushrooms
*Tomatoes in picture were not roasted by me.
