Ingredients

Salad:

  • 1 ripe pineapple peeled cored and cut into large slices
  • 1 lb jicama peeled and cut into matchstick size pieces
  • 1 lb carrots peeled and cut into matchstick size pieces
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup rice vinegar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt

Dressing:

  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
  • zest from one lime
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger grated
  • 1 tablespoons honey
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 tablespoons light flavored olive oil

Garnish:

  • Fresh Thai basil and/or fresh mint chopped
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted peanuts chopped
  • 1 shallot thinly sliced

Instructions

  1. In a small mixing bowl, add water, vinegar, sugar and salt.  Toss with prepared jicama and carrots.  Set aside for 15-20 minutes.  Meanwhile, prepare garnishes and set aside.  Prepare shallots by adding oil to a skillet and heating until shallots sizzle as they are added.  Carefully brown and crisp the shallots.  Place the browned shallots on absorbent paper towels and set aside with other garnishes.
  2. To prepare dressing: Mix lime juice, zest, ginger, honey, salt and oil in a small mixing bowl.  Whisk until honey dissolves.  Set aside.
