When it is too hot to cook the best thing to do is to have an assembled dinner. Since it was around 104F yesterday, we decided on a Southwest chicken salad. We set up the ingredients on the kitchen island and each of made our own salad.
Since we usually serve this with ranch dressing, I bought some Skinny Girl ranch dressing which only has 10 calories for 2 tablespoons. It’s not as good as the real thing but it was not terrible. So we kept the kitchen as cool as possible and enjoyed a colorful and filling dinner.
