So far our pace this summer has remained remarkably leisurely. These long slow days admit bike rides to the grocery for fresh salad greens and fruit or to the library for the books saved for hammock reading. And the best part is none of it feels hurried. Time even for a simple homemade dressing. The lemon garlic one below adds a light but savory touch to red leaf lettuce, spinach, carrots and cucumbers. Simple and perfect with bruchetta.
3 T. fresh lemon juice
1 clove garlic, minced
coarsely ground sea salt and pepper to taste
Mix well and allow to sit for 30 minutes before adding to greens.
...and the books--so far I would recommend them--along with the hammock of course.
