Today it’s 90 F and humid in an ugly, Washington, D.C. kind of way. This is why all the French run out of France in August! It finally dawns on me. I thought they left in August to get in vacation time before school starts. Not. I get it and I’m leaving with the French next August. It’s much cooler in Pennsylvania!
I made a pretty little salad today from leftover roasted chicken and some odds and ends in the refrigerator. One of those ends were spicy, little stuffed peppers that I believe are Italian and called vinegar peppers. I wonder what the Italian name is… I found the rose colored glass bowl at a flea market yesterday before it got too hot to live.
Anyway, I’m not cooking until the temperature drops by at least 10 degrees. Freezer be damned!
2 cups roasted chicken, sliced/diced whatever
2 tomatoes, sliced
1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
4 hard boiled eggs, sliced
1/2 cup roquefort cheese, crumbled
1 package stuffed vinegar peppers.
Put some lettuce into 4 salad bowls. Arrange the chicken, tomatoes, onion, eggs, cheese and peppers on top of the lettuce in an attractive manner. Drizzle with vinaigrette.
Beverage suggestion: Cremant Rose
