We have been having a heat wave here in So Cal. Not just blistering heat, but ridiculous humidity.
We aren't used to humidity. We don't really know how to handle it. We are used to dry desert air, but not this damp tropical stuff.
I haven't been cooking most nights since it has been so damn hot. It is just too punishing to try to face firing up the stove or the oven.
Also, we have been going all over, having adventures, taking pictures, etc.
We have made this salad several times and it is worth heating up the kitchen.
