my favorite thing to do on a saturday morning is grocery shop for ingredients for the weekend meals. there was a woman pushing the avocados, giving free samples. they were a buck a piece & perfect ripeness. i was surprised how many people don’t like avocados or fear them. not me. it’s probably my favorite food on the planet.
handfull of cherry tomatoes
handfull of radishes
small bunch of cilantro
1 8 oz. jar of tomatillo salsa
chop everything small. mash with potato masher. add salsa, salt to taste & fine chopped cilantro.
peel & julienne the jicama. serve.
i learned about jicama (yam bean, mexican turnip) at frontera. instead of chips at topolobampo, the high end frontera, they serve jicama. i do not like salt or fried food-this means chips-so jicama is the perfect solution. it’s much healthier (high in carbs & fiber, vitamin c & potassium) nice & cooling and tastes sweet. it pairs well with spices. try it instead of chips!
