Favorite Summer Salad Dressings and Sauces

My weekly menus in the summertime include many more salads than they did just a few weeks ago.  I have my go-to list that I prepare over and over during the warm weeks of July, August and September that I want to share with you.   All these salads are easy to put together and make a complete meal when served with crusty bread and a light dessert.  I’m all for taking life a little easy when the weather gets hot.  I have posted these recipes in the past and hope that if you haven’t prepared them  you will try them now.   Most of the ingredients can be found in your local farmers’ market.   The two sauces at the end of the post are particular family favorites.

    I haven’t enjoyed a good Green Goddess dressing, since my Uncle sold his restaurant. He made the BEST Green Goddess dressing, and I keep meaning to try making it for myself. I absolutely adore tarragon. In fact, my backyard is loaded with it. This is the push I needed, Cathy. Since you love this recipe, I can be assured I will too.
    PS: I enjoyed some lemon custard ice cream last night. I thought of you. :)
