I imagine you are going thru heat withdrawal just like alot of the country. So how about a tall glass of lemonade.
Here are the ingredients:
1 qt. water
1 cup sugar
1 cup lemon juice
Put all these items in a quart container(or larger). Place a lot of ice in a few tall glasses and pour the mixture over the ice. Try to let it sit long enough to get cold. Duh!
I am making Crab Louie for supper and needed a dressing. I found this one that should do the trick.
1/3 cup mayo
2 TBSP + 2 tsp chili sauce
1 TBSP sweet relish
Mix all this together and put in refrig until ready to make salad.
Crab Louie Salad is just lots of lettuce for the base. Use a can of crab meat or fresh crab if you have it and spread this over the base of lettuce. The rest of the ingredients are what you like to add. A hard boiled egg(cut in half), cold asparagus spears, tomatoes diced or cut in quarters, and avacado-- whatever makes for a good salad. The dressing itself is a thousand island dressing drizzled over the crab and lettuce bed. The other items are placed around the outside of the salad to eat as you go along. I usually like saltines or hot french bread to go along with this salad. It is a meal entirely in itself depending, of course, on how big you make it. This salad can be found along the coastline where crab are plentiful and is a luxury. This also could be made of shrimp.
Hope everyone has a good weekend. For us they are predicting rain for the weekend to go along with all the heat.
