Jicama Peanut Salad

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Lais in Minneapolis

I created this recipe to try and duplicate a salad I had at Dayton's River Room over 15 years ago. It has changed a bit over the years but is always a hit at my house.

This is so good, bound to make anybody a salad lover! I used cider vinegar, by the way.

  1. Peel and julienne the jicama (don't grate it or it will be a soggy mess).
  2. Put the peanuts in a zip bag and smash them with a can or mallet a couple of times.
  3. Boil sugar and vinegar until sugar dissolves and let cool a bit and add crushed red pepper flakes.
  4. Chop cilantro.
  5. Mix jicama, 1 - 1 1/2 bunch cilantro and red peppers and toss with sugar/vinegar mixture.
  6. Take remaining cilantro and sprinkle over salad, top with peanuts.
