I entered a recipe contest hosted by Muy Bueno Cookbook, and I won! The winning recipe is for Salad of Grilled Nopal with Carrot, Jícama and Beet which was featured on Cooking in Mexico last month. Check out their site — they did a much better job with the photography than I did when I first wrote up this recipe.
I never win anything, so this is a big deal for me. The prize is a beautiful Muy Bueno 2011 calendar, with each month featuring one of their Latino inspired recipes and a gorgeous photo.
Muy Bueno Cookbook is selling these calendars, with part of the proceeds benefiting the Denver Foundation, a non-profit group that will use the funds for neighborhood improvements. The photo below shows this calendar; click it to order your own. And make this salad! It’s so colorful and so good for you.
