I’m so inspired by this summer weather! My hubby is joining a group of friends early tomorrow morning for a long distance road ride on his bike. Afterwards, my son and I are meeting him back at the home of one of the riders for a group lunch and pool party. Isn’t this season so much fun?! I’m looking forward to it.
Naturally, when there’s a party, there’s food…. and summer food is the best! I’m bringing a fresh fruit and arugula salad, and I just made the dressing ahead of time. It’s in the fridge chillin’ getting ready for it’s mingle with the salad tomorrow. The dressing is a zesty sweet Orange & Lemon dressing. I used an organic orange and lemon that were so juicy and colourful. They smelled and tasted delicious!
Here’s how it went down…
Zesty Summer Dressing
1/4 cup fresh squeezed juice from an Orange
1/4 cup minced red onion or shallots
1/2 cup olive oil
1 tablespoon raw unpasturized honey
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon of pepper
I throw all the ingredients in to a shaker cup, give it a good shake and put it in the fridge for later.
Dress salad no more than 1 hour before serving to prevent a wilted mushy salad. 😦
