Roasted Corn Guacamole

Ingrid once said, “if I had to eat only one food for the rest of my life, it would be avocado”.  I agree.  I think most of us have probably made this unnecessary decision of selecting the one food item you could eat for the rest of your existence… Guacamole makes everything better and the roasted corn adds a unique and delicious flavor!

Jicama summer salad

A few summers ago, our health concious mother made us this refreshing jicama salad and we’ve been creating it in our own kitchens ever since. The simplicity of it makes for a quick meal during these scorching summer days. This is also one of those salads that tastes even better the next day.

Jicama salad.

Peel and chop jicama and mango into bite size pieces. Roughly chop cilantro. Combine these ingredients in a medium bowl. Add lime juice and cayenne pepper (to taste). For best flavor, chill the salad overnight in the fridge.

*possibly add ginger, cucumber, mint…we’ll definitely have to experiment next time!
