Recipe Ingredients for Jicama and Corn Salad

1 medium jicama
2 ears corn
1/2 cup raw pine nuts
1/2 cup red onion, finely diced
2 tbsp fresh mint leaves, chopped
1 1/2 tbsp chili sauce
1/4 cup vinaigrette
1/4 teaspoons salt

Recipe Directions for Jicama and Corn Salad

  1. Preheat the oven to 350F. Toast the pine nuts on a shallow baking sheet for 4-5 minutes or until they are just lightly browned. Transfer them from the pan to a plate right away and set aside to cool.

  2. Peel the jicama and cut it into short allumette pieces ? about 1-1 inches long and inch wide.

  3. Remove the corn husks and slice the kernels off with a knife. Combine the jicama pieces, the corn and the onion in a large bowl. Refrigerate for 30-45 minutes or until chilled.

  4. Add the chopped mint, toasted pine nuts and optional Thai sweet chili sauce. Season to taste with Kosher salt.

  5. Toss with vinaigrette until lightly coated and serve atop a bed of baby greens on chilled plates.
