As an accompaniment to the black bean and sweet potato enchiladas I wrote about yesterday, we had a refreshing jicama and melon salad. I've made something similar in the past (and what I wrote about the Lena Horne connection still holds true). I was lucky that the cantaloupe I picked out was pretty much perfect which helped a lot. And I will admit that whenever I see the tiny $5 package of pomegranate seeds at Trader Joe's I think to myself "who on earth would pay $5 for a handful of pomegranate seeds?" Well, me as it turns out. But they really made the salad. The sweetness of the melon, the crispness of the jicama and then the unexpected pop of the pomegranate - perfect. I will definitely keep this one in rotation and when our pomegranates are ready this winter I am freezing the seeds so I don't have to buy them the rest of the year.
Glee is on tonight and the Sharks won. Oh happy day.
