  1. Wonderful, all of it which came together for a great meal. The beet is tempting and the gummy bear is a new discovery for the salad. That said, it's like an Asian style with some of the ingredients added in.

  7. I love your version of the Jicama salad, but the gummy bears remind me of our Food Network show...'Chopped' as one of the secret ingredients you have to creatively combine into a dish.

    Sounds interesting and fun, and probably gives it a 'kick' of slight sweetness. (I would not tell my guests abt. the secret ingredient...LOL)
