I made the salad dressing today because it was easy (Leaf Salad with Classic Vinaigrette pp. 202). It tasted great on my salad, and I think I will keep making this from now on. It's just a basic dressing, 1 T. of red vine vinegar and 1 T olive oil and salt and pepper to taste. Mr. Bishop stated that I could use some garlic, but I just wanted the pure notes of the other flavors.
To make the other recipe (I will not be writing a post on Friday, but will have an automatic linky love for all y'all!), I needed to purchase watermelon. Now, Chef Turbo is the only person in the whole house who eats watermelon. For that reason I buy the personal sized ones. Well... watermelon season is almost over, and all they have for sale at the veggie store is these humongous watermelons. I bought one, and the lady asked me if I needed assistance taking it out to my car. I declined, being as I would have to take it into my house on my own anyways (That is how heavy this thing was!)
No one liked the Cucumber-Melon Salsa (pp.128). Chef Turbo said it was too spicy (it had pepper flakes) and I just do not like the flavors or any of these items: watermelon, cucumber, or onion. BLECH.
The salad dressing was most defiantly best part of the night. Super good. Super suggested.
