This recipe got a lot of compliments. Including a request for the recipe. Very tasty. I didn't know what a jicama was but it didn't seem to matter. Also once I made it with black eyed beans instead of black beans and that was fine. Delicious!
I used key limes and it was too bitter so I added a spoonful of sugar. Tasted great. This is a great fix and leave in the fridge to munch on all week recipe. Oh and if your like me and you don't like it to be too spicy de-seed your jalapeno before mincing. That's where most of the spice is. I did this and it came out just right. Oh and a Jimica is a round root thingy that has the taste/texture of a cross between an apple and a potato. Get a small one or it'll take over the salad. Mine was waay to big and it suffered for it.
This was fabulous! Got many compliments on this dish! I left out both the bell and jalp. peppers b/c my husband hates peppers. Turned out I didn't miss them at all. The jicima however was essential! It gave the salad a nice crisp crunch. Totally unexpected but very refreshing. Also you could easily reduce the cheese and oil for a lighter version.
I don't see how anyone can eat this with a full cup of olive oil. I used half as others suggested and it was still too much dressing. I recommend using 1/2 cup olive oil then add the dressing a little at a time and check according to your taste. I did love the combination of flavors of the salad!
We made this tonight for a quick vegetarian dinner and it was delicious. Substituted daikon for jimica since we happened to have one in the fridge and skipped the jalapeno but otherwise we stayed true to the recipe and really enjoyed it. Will definitely make it again.
Because I omitted the jicama I think I should have used less olive oil. I only used about 3 oz. of feta and that seemed to be plenty for me. This was good - very light yet filling for a great summer lunch. We'll be having this again - thanks!
I hate doing this especially since so many others enjoyed this recipe. I could not eat it and my family wouldn't even try it. I only used 3/4 c. oil and it was just way too oily. For some reason the flavors just did not mesh to me. I like everything individually so I figured I'd love this. It just was not even a little bit good to me. SORRY!!
