Jicama Salad

Based on the street snacks of fruit and Jicama sold all over Mexico, this light and refreshing salad makes a great introduction to jicama to the uninitiated. When describing Jicama to people I like to tell them that it tastes like a cross between apples and water chestnuts.

for the salad
1 medium sized jicama peeled and cut into thick matchbook style pieces
2 oranges peeled and cut into thick slices
1/4 cup diced onion
3 radishes cut in 1/2 and sliced
2 tablespoons chopped cilantro

for the dressing
1 cup olive oil
2/3 cup lime juice
1/4 cup cholula
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1 tsp sugar

mix dressing ingredients well and reserve, in a large bowl toss together salad ingredients and pour enough dressing to coat, toss again and plate, sprinkle a little Tajin over the top if desired
