I know you were expecting my next post to be my first vacation post, and I promise I've been working diligently and will have it ready this week. But this post does have a vacation tie-in, so it kinda counts!
When we were in Victoria, BC we went for a stroll through a residential neighborhood and stumbled upon a little neighborhood grocery store that had lots of organic produce and a small deli. They had one vegan item in the deli - a sweet potato, white potato, and black bean salad made with a vinaigrette. We bought some and shared it at one of their outdoor tables, and since we got back I've been trying to find a recipe to replicate it so I don't have to guess at the seasonings (we think cumin was one) and liquids involved. No luck yet, but in my search I did find this one, which sounded pretty interesting, so last night we made it for dinner. And interesting it is! A very unusual combination of flavors, it might not be for everyone but we really enjoyed it and will be making it again, including when BW's folks visit next month. It's very healthy and pretty, too, and even more flavorful the next day! We shared some with our neighbor, who later demanded the recipe. :-)
Enjoy, and I'll see you in Butte, MT (virtually speaking) later this week! :-)
