It's no secret I am a fan of Tyler Florence and often get to see him here. So obviously I was excited to try his recipe for Jicama & Mango salad I googled after beomg inspired by the delicious Jicama & Mango slaw from Fine Foods at Home - so good I ate it as dessert. Although, I quickly learned I am lacking the culinary skills to give this dish the presentation it deserves (New Year's resolution #1), it was quite a hit at my office's potluck! I will be giving it another go during Christmas - it's the perfect salad for a beach Christmas.
  • 1 medium jicama (about 1lb)
  • 2 small cucumbers
  • 3 medium mangos
  • 1/4 cup roughly chopped cilantro leaves + sprigs, for garnish
  • 2 tsp powdered dried chili
  • 2 limes, juiced
  • Serves about 6

{How to} Peel and cut the jicama into long thin strips. Slice the cucumbers in half, scoop out the seeds and then cut into similar in size to the jicama strips. {How to} Peel the mangos, cut the cheeks off, then slice into wedges. Combine all the ingredients in a large mixing bowl with the chopped cilantro, powdered chili and lime juice. When ready to serve, season with a little salt and garnish with fresh cilantro sprigs.
