When I was little, I loved bleu cheese salad dressing. If ever given a choice, I would choose that. I don’t know why, especially because I find it rather revolting now (especially since it usually contains gluten).
Most salad dressings are too thick, contain ingredients that make me sick, or are just unhealthy. I have never been a “salad for a meal” type of person. I’ll throw down some steak and potatoes with no hesitation. But in the summer I often have a craving for something lighter. What to do?
The other day I noticed that my glass bottle of olive oil had about 1 cup of oil left in it. I removed the plastic insert at the opening of the bottle, and added:
1/2 cup of lemon juice
1 tsp basil
1 tsp oregano
1/8 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp black pepper
Then I shook it up. I now have homemade dressing that I keep in my fridge, and I love it.
Over the last few years, I’ve just picked up whatever Persian tea was easily accessible. My mother tends to mix her own tea, but I don’t have the skills for that. Recently I received some Anisa Tea as a gift, and was stunned to taste something like the tea that is served in Haifa. The one I like is the “Persian Tradition” blend, of course.
Do you have a particular kind of tea or flavor of tea that you really love?
