Thanks everyone for participating in the Secret Ingredient group. There were many great entries and once again I had a difficult time deciding (really, it's so hard!). However in the end I've decided that the Jicama Salad posted by Crispet1 is my number one choice. I can just taste the way the crispy Jicama plays with the soft textures of the beets and carrots. Top that off with orange segments and lime juice and you've got my kind of a salad.
The next Secret Ingredient challenge is raisins. As a kid I loved them, but these days, not so much. So post your best recipe featuring raisins and help me fall in love with them again. Post them in the Secret Ingredient group by this coming Thursday. Good luck and good eats!
Oh and it turns out that raisins may be good for your teeth. I guess that's another reason for you to find me a great recipe!
