Snow Pea & Jicama Salad

by Tamara Harden July. 13, 2008 3051 views

1/2 lb snow peas, blanched & drained
1 small jicama, peeled, cut into matchsticks
1/4 c fresh lemon juice
3 TBSP soy sauce
2 TBSP vegetable oil
1 TBSP sesame oil
1 TBSP fresh ground ginger
1 TBSP honey
sald & pepper (be careful with the salt, as the soy sauce is salty)

In a bowl, put peas & jicama. In small bowl, combine other ingredients until well blended, toss with vegetables

I, myself, didn't use snow peas, I used snap sugar peas, and I didn't blanche them. Had I used the snow peas, I probably would have, since they are a little tougher.

The jicama absorbs this asian mix of flavors, and is so very good!!

This is a jicama, in case you've not been introduced. It is a very versatile tuber. It tastes like a cross between an apple and a potatoe. I chop them and use them in salads, I slice them, and sqeeze fresh lime over them, you could then sprinkle chili powder or cumin. They have a slight sweetness, and are very crunchy. They work well in stir-fries, and absorb any flavor they are mixed with.
