Jicama Mango Salad With Mozzarella & Chilies

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 0 mins

Jicama salads are so refreshing and crunchy. When you buy a jicama be sure it has a firm smooth light brown peel, no wrinkles or mold spots. When you cut into it the flesh should be very white. Peel deep enough that the brown outer peel and the coarse (like woven linen)inner peel comes off too. They are very easy to peel and cut. I like to serve this very cold but it is fine at room temperature too.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a bowl whisk together the sugar and lime juice until sugar disolves.
  2. Slowly pour in the oil as you continue whisking In a large bowl mix remaining ingredients (except cilantro sprigs), toss Pour oil mixture over& toss- the salad may rest in the fridge for a couple of hours Divide salad among 6-8 plates, decorate with a sprig of cilantro& serve.

Wonderfully imaginative salad. Sweet,sour,spicy,soft, crunchy, fruity, cheesey AND it's beautiful. Thank you, Bergy. A real keeper here.

Surprisingly, this was probably the most boring salad I've ever eaten. I tried adding more sugar, then some salt, then some vinegar, but nothing seemed to help. Packing leftovers for lunch today (I hate wasting food) I added some honey and OJ. We'll see if that helps any. Anyway, I definitely will not be making this again.
