You know that I like strawberries, but have you ever had a Strawberry Mango Tostada? I hadn’t either, but anything with strawberries has my name all over it. This tostada has fresh strawberries, avocado, mango, jicama, mango, lime juice, of course, cilantro, cooked chicken and a few jalapeno slices, and tortillas How many of you have eaten jicama? I never had before now, and I really didn’t care for it This salad is so refreshing and summery. We finally are in the 80’s in Chicago. Of course, when we turned on the air conditioner, it didn’t come on, only the fan from the furnace was running.
My husband bought a cheap programmable thermostat, when our other one died, and it has never worked correctly. Now he needs a thermostat intervention. I am going to buy a new one today, which I should have done a long time ago. Wish me luck!
Because it wasn’t very cool in our house and it was 89 outside, I wanted a cool salad type dinner, I made this Strawberry Tostada. I got a flier at the grocery store from the California Strawberry Commission, official, he he, so it must be good! I adapted their recipe by adding the mangoes, and chicken
