Hot weather assembling. 7/10/21

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.

Salad greens ready to be dressed with chicken, olives, black beans, corn, tomatoes, scallions, pepperoncini, and salsa

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.
