Pico de jícama y naranja
Makes 8 servings

1 large or 2 small jícamas, 1 1/2 pounds, peeled and cut into sticks
3 oranges, peeled and separated into segments or sliced
3 tablespoons freshly-squeezed lime juice
3 tablspoons olive oil
1 teaspoon kosher or sea salt, or more taste
1 tablespoon dried ground chile Piquín or Tajín, or to taste
1/2 cup shelled roasted (not salted) peanuts, chopped and toasted

In a mixing bowl, whisk together the lime juice, olive oil, salt and pepper to create a vinaigrette.

Place the jícamas and oranges in a salad bowl. Toss with the vinaigrette. Let it all marinate for about 10 minutes, either inside or outside of the refrigerator. Sprinkle with the peanuts and serve.


This looks absolutely delicious! I'm so glad to have found your site. I've been eating more Mexican food in Korea these days than local dishes.

Hola Samuel, Thank you for writing. I'm glad you found the site too. Maybe you will have to go to Mexico next.

This recipe looks amazing Pati - but I'm having trouble finding jícamas. Is there a good substitue for this that I might be able to find at a local grocery store? Thanks - found your show about 3 months ago and love it.
