Today was sunny and beautiful, there were no showers at all. Sunshine for the win.
I wanted to see the community garden in the sunshine, so Hannah and I went over to the park, she hung out in the swings, ate some puffed kamut, waited for our friends to join us and then checked out the plot.
An afternoon walk to a different park to meet our friends again and then a nice chat and stroll around east van.
A great day followed by a light salad for dinner.
Jicama Salad with Lime Vinaigrette
1 medium jicama, julienned (I use a mandolin)
1 red pepper, julienned
1 carrot, julienned
1 handful of cilantro, chopped
1 handful of basil, chopped
2 green onions, chopped
juice and zest of a lime
1 tbsp rice wine vinegar
1 tbsp soy sauce or tamari
1 tbsp neutral tasting oil (I used grapeseed)
a few splashes of fish sauce
1 tsp of brown sugar
sriracha to taste
Mix the first six ingredients in a bowl. In a separate bowl whisk together the remaining ingredients. Combine everything together and enjoy! Really great with grilled fish.
