Chicken, Mango & Jicama Salad W Tequila-Lime Vinaigrette

READY IN: 2hrs 40mins
Recipe by little_wing

That name is a mouthful, I know! But a tasty mouthful. If you've never tried jicama, here is your chance! This a bit time consuming but you can easily make the dressing ahead of time. You can also do the tortilla strips ahead and store in a airtight container, or omit them altogether and use store-bought tortilla chips.

I loved this salad - very exotic, like something you'd get in a fancy restaurant. I used a bag of fancy lettuces - you know the ones with the odd shapes and colors! :-) I did add some cumin to the vinaigrette, and used ancho chile powder for the red chile powder. And since I had leftover chicken from recipe #100843 - Tequila Grilled Chicken - I used that. Thanks! (PS I forgot to star this initially - don't know if this review will post twice.)
