Fresh and Crisp: Jicama Slaw and Cucumber Salsa

With all the holiday baking, it’s nice to have some tasty fresh items around the house to nibble on.

I made the Cucumber Salsa (recipe here) and decided to pulse it in the Vitamix – still crispy pieces, but chopping it finely really upped the flavor meld. It didn’t last but a day before it was all gone.

And today I made a big batch of Jicama Slaw (recipe here) and am always pleasantly surprised how fresh and summery it tastes. A nice change from heavier winter fare.  And it’s healthy to boot.

I’ll have some sweeter holiday treat for gifts later today or tomorrow.

Until then…
