Alas I was unable to salvage the root vegetables, but I was able to save the cucumber bits at least and make a decent fruit salad that I have made before. It consists of jicama, red bell peppers, cucumber bits, and grapefruit chunks - diced, add some lemon juice, and top with a little artificial sugar and grated almonds. The other stuff is just rice, with some furikake seasoning, and some mushroom gravy. It worked out okay, but I think the gravy needs a little something extra. Here it is - not sure what my next dishes will be, but I may hang onto the fruit salad, considering it is yummy and healthy.
