"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.)"
"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 !!"
"What a great salad this turned out to be....We really liked the dressing...have some leftover and will be repeating for dinner tonite...it was that good!"
"I thought this sounded great, but wasn't sure if the kiddos would eat it. Much to my surprise, they loved it and so did hubby! We'll add this to our regular menu!!!"
"WOW, what more can you say. This is one of the most wonderful salads I think I have ever had. I will definitely make this again."
"This really is a wonderful salad. Easy to throw together too. I preprepped everything and took to a BBQ where we threw the chicken on the grill. It had a very full and rich flavour - yummy! I did not add the honey to the dressing and it was excellent. I cheated on the tortilla's and bought the seasoned snacking kind - already crispy and tasty. Made for ZWT4 and will be making again soon :)"
"oh wow! this salad was greeeeeat! i loved it! the name sold me! i did the recipe exactly!! only suggestions i have is to maybe double the vinagrette cause i felt like it wasnt enough. and also my tortilla strips never got crispy. i used the oven method so id suggest the frying method instead! but the taste is delicious! very different from other salads! i WILL be making this again! made for zwt4"
"Very tasty, with a great combination of sweet/savoury/tart flavours."
"I loved the vinaigrette! The tequila added quite a bite which went really well with the mango, lol. I have to say I didn't care for the corn tortilla strips. I baked mine in the oven and they just never got crispy, more chewy than anything. I did enjoy the cumin on them though. The flavor of the chicken is outstanding!!! I would use that marinade for any type of grilled chicken. Made for the Babes of ZWT4."
"My husband finished his plate and then proceeded to eat half of mine! The only thing I would change is to season the chips after frying as the seasoning didn't stay on once it hit the oil."
"The chicken was fantastic!! I made it for my family & they loved it so I made it for a birthday party. Everyone thought the chicken was fantastic. The vinaigrette was slightly too bitter so I added more honey and oj and did not put in the tequila the 2nd time around. This helped and the mangos made a beautiful presentation! I also added Empire Pecan Pie Pecans to the salad."
"Absolutely a make again. My husbband prepared it when we had company over. Apparently everyone loved it. I missed out because I was in the hospital but my friends husband is an awesome ccok so I trust his opinion. Leanne"
