Ahi-Jicama Salad

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by DeeCooks

A special I had at one of our great seafood restaurants in Monterey. They wouldn't share the recipe, but I found a few like it and adapted 'til it was close! I don't usually add the chilis, (I picked them off at the restaurant,) but my husband likes them. A mandoline is great here for the veggies.
