Burrito Bowl + Spicy Green Goddess Dressing

Burrito Bowl + Spicy Green Goddess Dressing

It’s hot! 90 degree temps are here to stay in Charlotte so let’s keep it cool in the kitchen! Seriously, I could have smoothies for dinner every night when it’s hot and humid like this but I might forget how to chew and that would be bad. Burrito bowls have become my go-to during these hot months – super flavorful but low maintenance, the key to summer cooking. I marinated the tomatoes and onions in lots of lime juice – it’s how they do at my favorite little Peruvian place and it’s delicious. If you’re feeling really lazy just make this dressing, i.e. place all the ingredients into your food processor and turn it on). It’s spicy, cool and creamy and it’ll lively up any plain head of lettuce.
