Description

A refreshing Jicama Avocado and Radish Salad with Lime Vinaigrette with great texture and flavor, that comes together quickly and easily. Vegan

Ingredients
    For the vinaigrette:
  • 1/4 cup lime juice (freshly squeezed)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • For the salad:
  • 5 ounces radishes ((medium size bunch))
  • 1 large Hass avocado (diced)
  • 1 medium jicama (peeled and sliced matchsticks or julienned)
  • 4 Bird's eye chili (or any dried red chili, roasted and ground for garnish)
  • 1/2 cup cilantro leaves (chopped, for garnish)
  • salt (to taste (optional))
Instructions
    1. Dry-roast dried chili peppers in a cast-iron skillet over medium heat for 5 minutes until darkened, but not blackened. Keep stirring to get all sides toasted evenly. Remove from heat and let them cool before grinding. When cooled, remove the stems and grind them using a spice grinder or mortar and pestle. This makes about 1 tablespoon or so. Keep the ground chili pepper in a jar in the pantry for up to a year.
    2. In a small bowl, whisk together the lime juice and salt. Add olive oil in a thin stream into a bowl while whisking, about 10 seconds.
    3. In a large bowl, combine radishes, avocado and jicama. Add vinaigrette to taste (all may not be needed), and toss gently. Add salt to taste (optional). Sprinkle with ground dried chili (used 2 teaspoons) and chopped cilantro leaves.

Note

Advance preparation: The vinaigrette can be made a few hours ahead. The salad keeps well for day or two in the refrigerator. Keeping: Store the vinaigrette in a covered container and use within 3 days. Whisk before using. Note: For a spicier version, add 1 1/2 tablespoons freshly ground dried chili instead.
