We have also been BBQ'ing quite a bit since the weather is hotter and I have no desire to turn the stove or oven on in the house. The house heats up way too fast and with trying to conserve money and cut down on expenses, turning on the air conditioner is not an option right now. Besides, I love to BBQ and as a bonus any side dish that you do not have to cook is more points to me.
Without further ado:
1/2 Head of Purple Cauliflower (or less depending on how many people you are feeding) broken into small bite size pieces
1/2 Cucumber, chopped into bite size pieces
1/2-1 Avocado,chopped into bite size pieces
3 Radishes, chopped into bite size pieces
1/2 cup Red Grapes, cut in half
1/2 Cup Olive Oil
3/4 cup Red Wine Vinegar
1/2 TBSP Sugar
2 TBSP Fresh Grated Parmesan Cheese
Juice from 1 Lemon or 2 (I used two but that is just me)
2 tsp fresh Dill, chopped
Salt and Pepper to taste
Chop it up, throw it into a bowl and shake up the Vinaigrette really well and then dress the salad right before serving.
Remember, enjoy life.
It's the one you have,
