It’s me, your double oven. What made you think that it was a good idea to run me for multiple hours on a hot July day? I don’t care that it’s zucchini season and you have a recipe for zucchini chips planned in a few weeks. The heat of summer is in full force, and I don’t appreciate getting this kind of workout right now!
What were you thinking?
I hate to say it, but it was time for me to put you in your place. Yes, that means I interrupted your recipe yesterday and shut off with no warning whatsoever – that is, aside from a loud beeping sound that wouldn’t stop until you cut the power. I had to make sure you knew how mad I was!
I hope you enjoy your next few weeks without me, because my broken control panel is discontinued and will have to be mailed in for custom soldering repair. Doesn’t that sound like fun? Bwahahahaha.
Sending not-so-warm regards,
Your Broken Oven
Yep, my oven went kaput yesterday. Looks like it’s just the stove and no-bake recipes for me for the next few weeks!
Fortunately, I’m loving summer salads right now. Even if your oven isn’t broken, you should be too, because during the summer months we all want quick and easy. Convenience takes precedence more than ever. I love throwing together a quick salad so that I can get back outside.
Bonus points for not making your oven angry like I did.
The salad I’m sharing today came as a bit of a surprise, actually. Some of the ingredients are not ones you’d traditionally think of when “low carb” comes to mind. Did you know that sugar snap peas and radishes are actually both low carb?
Sugar snap peas have approximately 4.9 grams of net carbs per cup, and radishes have 2.5 grams per cup. They pair together very well in this salad, because the natural sweetness of the peas and sharpness of the radishes compliment each other. A creamy dill dressing mellows out their dramatic flavors.
Conclusion of the day? More summer salads + not using your oven when it’s 90 degrees outside = maybe your oven won’t break like mine did. You’re welcome.
Like this recipe? Pin it to make it later!
