OMG...I Made the BEST Salad with Mango and Jicama!

Beach Chick | Feb 23, 2010 12:20 PM

Dinner party last weekend and I had to bring a salad to go with a Shrimp Curry dish..
I decided on a Mango with Jicama...WOW..
I bought the mango slices you see at Costco, since I find that peeling mango is a huge pain in the arse.
I cubed up the mango..the jicama..I peeled and julienned them with a bunch of fresh mint and cilantro (optional) with red onion, baby red and yellow bell peppers with sesame oil, rice wine vinegar, serrano chiles and fresh garlic chopped fine along with a teaspoon of chile paste...sea salt and fresh ground pepper to taste.
Marinate all the ingredients for about an hour in the fridge..
This was by far the most delicious salad I have ever made..the crunch factor was over the top good and the melding of sweet mango with the spice of the serrano chiles and the fresh mint with the jicama..served it on a bed of Bibb lettuce.
If you want a salad that will have the WOW factor...this is it!

Sorry for the gloat..
