When I get bored I want to cook. Cooking engages my brain, it smells good, it tastes good, and if I do it right, it looks good. I’ve created something wonderful from just a few random forgotten ingredients in the fridge. This quiche was no different. Its the end of the week and I have odds and ends in the fridge that need to get used up.
It’s mid-July already! Can you believe it? Its finally 100 degrees out here in SoCal and we are doing our very best to stay cool during the hottest part of the day. Around 5pm, when I start to make dinner it is still in the upper 90s so I am always trying to avoid cooking inside. Just using the stove makes the air conditioner kick on every time so to avoid astronomical electric bills I am doing 75% of my cooking on my amazing gas grill.
I made this salad in the work lunchroom once and everyone kept commenting on how good the cut veggies smelled and how beautiful it was. So it would be an easy, yet impressive side dish for a potluck. The best thing is it only takes about 15 minutes to make.
