Goodbye summer. Hello fall.

October 3, 2010

Suddenly fall is here, and I already miss the days filled with banana ice cream and mango watermelon soup.

To get into the autumn spirit, I wore a plaid shirt today and put a beautiful mum on our front porch.  Yesterday I made Grated Beet Salad packed with fall flavors.  Today we enjoyed fresh lettuce from our garden with pears and goat cheese (not raw but yummy and filled with B12) and raw apple pie.

Grated Beet Salad

2 cups grated jicama
2 cups grated raw beets (3 medium beets)
1 avocado, thinly sliced
1 navel orange, peeled, sectioned, each section cut into thirds (save any juice)
1/2 cup chopped cilantro
1 T lime juice
1/2 tsp. ground cumin
1/2 tsp. ground coriander
1 1/2 T olive oil
pumpkin seeds

1. Place beets in medium bowl along with jicama, avocado, orange, and cilantro.

2. Whisk together any orange juice you save from cutting the oranges, lime juice, cumin, and coriander. Whisk in oil. Pour over beet mixture, and toss to mix. Season with salt and pepper, if desired. Sprinkle each serving with pumpkin seeds.

    This is one of my favorites. You might not think the combinations of ingredients would go but it is superb.
