We went to dinner Monday night in Alex's old neighborhood, Chestnut Creek. It was so fun to ride around and have him show me where all of his friend's lived. I got a glimpse into his childhood: where they played, who were the mean neighbors, what pranks did they play, etc.
I brought a salad and wanted to make a new dressing. This one was super easy to throw together. You probably have all the ingredients on hand.
