Garlic Yogurt Dressing

As I’m in the South, I day dream that we’re all just part of a Harlequin romance novel and that these are just parts of sultry, summer nights but alas, reality settles in and it’s just crazy hot, is all.  101, 105, 110…and rising.  It’s just hot.  Not sexy.  The weekend was full of impromptu storms and angry spills of hail and it’s suppose to thunderstorm all week, too.  My neighbors tree even cracked.  We’re living in those days when just stepping outside feels like suffocating–it’s a perpetual sauna with no mirage in sight.  I feel sorry those who have to make a living being outside all the time.  I had a friend who used to pour concrete and boy oh boy is that terrible to do when it’s hot like this.

I tried to keep cool with watermelon slushies:

Blended cubes of frozen watermelon + lime (or mint)+ agave (water as needed) = delicious refreshment.

Frozen cheesecake.  I love cheesecake so I shrugged, threw caution to the wind and ordered it.  The texture is different but the flavor is there and the cool bites are a welcome luxury in this heat.

Garlic Yogurt Dressing
  • ½ c Greek yogurt
  • 2-4 tb extra virgin olive oil
  • 1-2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • Fresh dill or parsley
  • S & P
  1. In a bowl, whisk to combine.


{Light summer salad of baby spinach, almonds, olives, local tomatoes, grilled chicken and garlic-yogurt dressing}.

I also love this salad with berries & grilled shrimp.

Now, if only the skies would open up momentarily and allow some snow to fall to alleviate us of this bitter heat, we could all have snow cream too 🙂

I hope everyone has a fun & safe 4th of July!

Here’s the video again, just in case you missed it:
