Sense of Home Kitchen
A desire for fresh vegetables as the thermometer dipped below zero coupled by a desire to look presentable in a bathing suit mid-winter prompted a barrage of salads. Thus the jicama-ginger slaw was adapted to include a few more fresh ingredients than the original recipe called for, but I believe it is better for the change. Of course the real reason for all these salads is a trip to Costa Rica, a little summer in the middle of our winter. We are in for a HUGH climate adjustment as we fly south; the current temperature of Samara, Costa Rica is 87° F. and our current temperature is 24° F., that, along with the change from our currently very dry air to high humidity, ought to set our thermoreceptors reeling.
