mango, cucumber, jicama salad (dinner party, part 3)

salad in bowlAs soon as the snow started falling last Friday night I was dreaming about the beach. Fine, the food at the beach — Rockaway Taco to be exact — and their famous salad served in a ziploc bag. It is so simple and divine — long spears of cucumber, mango and jicama swimming in a citrus chile dressing. I thought I could recreate it in the same vein and serve it in individual mason jars — I’m working on my dinner party presentation here — but what seemed cute and creative just didn’t seem practical. So I chopped the veggies smaller, added pomegranate seeds, and plated it with the main course.

  1. What’s so great about this is that it’s just as perfect for a snowy winter day as it would be on a hot summer day. Letting all of those juices sit together is the key!
