I was watching Simply Delicioso the other day on The Cooking Channel and Ingrid was making a salad with Jicama. I have heard of it but never had it. It is sometimes referred to as a Mexican apple as it has the crunchiness and texture on an apple. It is very difficult to peel it though and I had to actually cut off chunks of it. I figured I would try it and the peanut dressing looked really good. I left out the radishes in my salad though.
3 tablespoons smooth peanut butter
1/4 cup fresh lime juice (about 2 limes)
2 tablespoons light brown sugar (I used dark)
2 tablespoons canola or vegetable oil
8 large radishes, halved lengthwise and thinly sliced crosswise(didn’t use)
6 cups mixed baby greens, washed and dried
1 large or 2 small mangoes, peeled, fruit cut off the seed and cubed
2 cups peeled and cubed jicama (cut into about 1/2-inch cubes)
1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves (not pictured)
Place the radishes, greens, mangoes, jicama and cilantro in a large bowl and toss together.
Drizzle with the dressing, toss using tongs to coat and serve.
