Crayfish salad with avocado
Solero were rather sportingly handing out free ice lollies at Sloane Square which helped cool down the amble to my office at lunch today. Although I did come a cropper trying to hold the darn thing, two bags and answer a call. Not the finest of moments.
This weather does cry out for gallons of iced water and salad by the plateful. In an attempt to get myself out of a salad rut, I bought some crayfish. Avocado, cherry tomatoes and salad leaves. The dressing was made with a generous teaspoon (some would say two on the one spoon...) of creme fraiche, half a teaspoon of Dijon mustard, glug of olive oil, tiniest splash of cider vinegar, chopped chives and a crack of pepper. Et voila. The only thing missing was a bustling cafe overlooking the harbour in Nice with a nice glass of Chablis.
What are you eating to stay cool?
