I confess. I ate the photo shoot. I made a huge salad this afternoon, drizzled it with Green Goddess Dressing and proceeded to devour it. The food prepared for photographing was instead inhaled. As in, scarfed immediately.
Now normally, I’m a fairly disciplined person, so this was a bit odd. Maybe I exercised a little too hard this morning and worked up a bigger appetite than usual. Maybe the dressing is delicious on a hot summer’s day. Who knows? You’ll just need to try the recipe below to find out for yourself. Me? I think it’s delicious.
In other news, I was lucky enough to attend a marimba concert today in which both of my children performed. The show was the culmination of a summer day camp put on by Kutandara, a local group that plays Zimbabwean music. The boys had a blast –they really rocked out on stage and seemed to enjoy playing the African tunes. My older son has gone to Kutandara’s camp for the past 5 years. Now, both boys attend every summer and absolutely love it.
If you are ever in Boulder, you might want to catch a marimba show by the professional Kutandara band (not the one my children play in); the concert schedule is on their website or check out one of their excellent CD’s.
Kutandara is an entirely cross cultural experience. The directors, Amy and Randy bring over musicians from Zimbabwe to teach the children; they also do a great deal of relief work in that country. Amy and Randy are amazing people in all that they give to the Boulder community and the people of Zimbabwe –I feel forever indebted to them for the beautiful experiences they offer my family year after year.
Green Goddess Dressing
- Place all ingredients in a vitamix
- Process on high speed until smooth and creamy
- Pour over your favorite salad greens
- Store remaining dressing in a glass jar in fridge
- Keeps for up to 5 days (if it lasts that long)
Our garden is yielding prolifically at present; therefore, every evening we eat a small mountain of salad. As you can guess, this Green Goddess Dressing is a current favorite which I make a few times a week.
