Because of the summer, my garden is still in overproduction of herbs. So we've been making all kinds of herbalicious salads, and they're so satisfying in this blazing heat. In fact we haven't really been eating much of anything that is cooked or even warm. One of our family summertime dinner favorites it to set up a meat and cheese tray with some type of yummy dip for veggie sticks or bread. With all these herbs we've been busy making and eating all kinds of cold dips, and if you've got a garden with herbs these are perfect for you too! - By Macki West
