    little_wing's Note:

    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 Tequila Grilled Chicken - Tequila Grilled Chicken - I used that. Thanks! (PS I forgot to star this initially - don't know if this review will post twice.)

      Great salad but will use less honey next time (I used 2 T.) Loved the fried tortillas and served with guacamole.

      OK People.. This thing is delicious!
      I made it with reservations because my family is not big on the "Salad is all we are having for dinner" and everyone likes something different, so usually salad is relegated to a side dish, I mention this for those who think you must make something else to go with it. YOU DONT.
      It is a lovely cooling dish for a hot day, I found that the dressing did not wilt the greens as quickly as other dressings. its sweet and savory with the seasoned tortilla strips. I used grilled drummettes instead of breast and it was a total hit. HIGHLY RECCOMEND.
      Added asian cucumbers and chickpeas since those flavors do really well with tart dressings, it was absolutely satisfying.
      THANL YOU LITTLE_WING !!
