On a happier note, Chinese Cabbage Salad! This stuff is wondrous.
One thing this pregnancy is really making me crave is spicy food. Like super spicy foods. My spice level at Thai or Indian restaurants have gone up from 7-8 (depending on the place) to 8-9. I happened to find some ghost pepper salt from Hepp’s and I’m in love. Pretty much, I’ve been using it in place of my regular salt for everything. The spice is perfect and you can really taste it unlike some flavored salts.
Here in San Diego, it’s about 104 degrees. Kinda crazy. Simply put, we needed a cold salad that still packed a lot of flavor. You can use regular salt, or a different flavored salt (habanero, chili, etc) if you’d like and it should still taste great.
