Avocado vinaigrette for the Cobb Salad Hoagies.
In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, vinegar, mustard, salt, and pepper. Stir in the avocado,
Nobody wants to cook on a hot day, so here is a nice sandwich that requires very little cooking.
In a medium bowl, combine the chicken, tomatoes, bacon, and bleu cheese. Drizzle the avocado vinaigrette over the chicken mixture; toss to coat. Place the lettuce leaves on the bottom halves of the hollowed out hoagie buns. Add the chicken mixture. Top with the chopped eggs & the top halves of the buns.
Instructions for making avocado vinaigrette will be in the next post!

On days when it’s hot, all we want to do is stay cool. Today, my A/C stopped working. Just so you all realize how awful that is for me, I live in Houston, TX, it was 100 degrees today, and I’m from the lovely Pacific Northwest… Washington, Oregon, Idaho. Let’s just say, I’m getting used to the temps after having lived here for a year, but I’m still not accustomed to sitting in an 80 degree apartment with 75% humidity. Oh, and I don’t own a fan… So, for all of you who get hot during summer, or just like cold drinks, here’s a tasty sounding drink that’s sure to quench your thirst while sitting out by the pool, or whatever your summer-time activities may include. 21+ only.
Just combine all of the ingredients in a 2-quart pitcher, chill, and serve over ice!
I found this in a book called “The Natural Healing Cookbook” by Mark Bricklin. This is supposed to be good for slenderizing and for increasing your resistance/immune system. I think it sounds absolutely delicious, though I am a bit of a mint-a-holic.
Combine pineapple cubes and mint in a large bowl. Use a melon baller or cut cantaloupe into cubes, chop apple and pear halves, and slice grapes in half. Combine fruits, toss with yogurt to taste, and chill before serving. Garnish with fresh mint sprigs.

I’ve made this soup before as a single serving, and it was delicious (though, I added corn and garbanzo beans to it)! Different than my local El Rey chicken tortilla soup, but in a good way, imo. Both are good, in their own right, but I don’t feel either is better or worse than the other. Now that I’ve gone on about that and have hopefully helped you to understand rather than confused you more, ON TO THE RECIPE!
