It’s Too Hot Salad

It’s too hot to cook.

It’s too hot to even eat.

This morning, I left for work at 6:40.  It was 80 degrees.

The air conditioning in my car is malfunctioning and blows out hot air..

I don’t want to cook.

It’s Too Hot Salad

4-5 leafs of rainbow Swiss chard

1 -2 handfuls of arugula

1/4 red onion

1/4 head of fresh broccoli

5-6 cherry tomatoes

Dressing of your choice

Run your knife down the stems of the chard, cutting the leaves off.  Roughly chop them and then stems.  Admire their beauty, then toss them in a salad bowl.

Toss in the arugula.  It has a nice, peppery sort of taste.

Thinly slice the red onion.  Stop crying.  Toss it in the bowl (anyone willing to share non-crying onion tips?).

Trim the broccoli, cutting off the florets. Add them to your salad.

Roughly chop the tomatoes and add them too.

Gently toss.  Slather it with the dressing of your choice.  Pick up the bowl and move in front of the air conditioner.  Eat.
