Flavor Adventure Challenge

Pineapple Cilantro Quinoa Salad – Just a bowl of cooked quinoa with fresh pineapple, a squeeze of a lime and a handful of chopped cilantro. Sprinkle with as much or as little cayenne pepper as you like. Toss and cool in the fridge.

Your mission should you choose to accept it:

1. Try a new to you veggie or fruit that you have never had before. Explore all aspects of the taste, scent, texture and report your adventure!

2. Put a fresh spin on an old favorite.  Make a salad with a flavor profile you haven’t tried before.  Make a spicy cole slaw instead of a sweet one.  Or try a citrus twist on something you would normally pair with garlic.  How did it turn out?

Experimenting with produce and different combinations of flavors can be an adventure!

interesting combos to try:

pineapple serrano pepper

sugar snap peas with mint

lemon rosemary

watermelon chipotle
