When the weather gets hot, I am not crazy about cooked foods. I love a nice large salad as it is always refreshing.
Zucchini can be used with the blossom
Best Caesar Salad
1 head romaine, torn into large pieces 1 small zucchini sliced lengthwise and grilled 3 slices eggplant, grilled 1 cup extra virgin olive oil 1 tsp. worcesterchire sauce 2 T. red wine vinegar juice of 1/2 lemon 2 tsp. Dijon mustard 1 tsp. capers 3 cloves garlic salt and pepper
In a blender, mix all the ingredients listed below the eggplant, refrigerate the dressing overnight for best flavor. Put the lettuce in a large bowl, add the dressing, blend well, put on a plate and put the grilled veggies all around.
