Jicama and Citrus Salad

Jicama and Citrus Salad

This salad takes inspiration from the delicious and refreshing fruit cups sold from the street carts found throughout Mexico. A mix of jicama, mango, pineapple and oranges are dressed in lime juice and seasoned with salt and chili powder. The tang and spice from the Ancho Chile & Tamarind Sauce evoke that same sweet, zesty and salty flavors as a dressing over refreshing jicama and citrus slices in a
beautiful green salad with the option to add chicken or shrimp for a heartier meal.
