  1. This makes me so sad I passed on the watercress at the International market yesterday! Next trip I am definitely trying this. It looks so refreshing.

  2. I tried fresh turmeric in your Laksa soup recipe a week or two ago. I loved it! This salad sounds amazing! I think my “I’m not hungry” 94 yr old mother will love this too!

    I bought too much tumeric root for the Laksa soup, so I roasted the leftover as follows: tumeric root, red skinned sweet potatoes, rainbow carrots, red onion, purple potatoes, rainbow mini peppers, Meyer lemon zest, pink sea salt, Pensey’s Mignonette Pepper blend, and coconut oil on bottom of pan and drizzled lightly over veggies. When it came out, I squeezed Meyer lemon juice over it and confetti bombed it with fresh chopped cilantro and parsley.

    It was good hot or cold!
