I like salads but I seriously crave salads in the summer. During the cold winter months my desire to eat a bowl full of greenery is at an all-time low. And when I say low I mean low. I decided to seize the weather on a recent hot summer day and enjoy a salad recipe I had been meaning to try. My only complaint about the recipe is that the dressing requires a few tablespoons of champagne. It’s annoying to open an entire bottle (even a mini bottle) for 2 tablespoons. What’s my solution? Invite over a friend and celebrate during the creation process. I suppose you could leave it the alcohol out, but I think the dressing would lack the ooh-la-la flavor that the champagne provides.
