Directions

Directions

  1. Combine all ingredients in a medium sized bowl except lettuce. Refrigerate for at least one hour, or up to two days to marinate (the longer the better).

  2. If using butter lettuce leaves arrange them on a large plate and fill each one with 1/4 cup of salad mixture. If using the Belgian Endive lettuce leaves, arrange them on a large plate and fill each one with 1/8 cup (2 Tbsps.) of salad mixture.

  3. Alternative Serving Suggestion: Use jicama instead of lettuce for the serving vessel. Peel the jicama and slice into 1/4-inch thick rounds, then slice the rounds into triangles (eighths) to resemble tortilla chips. Serve like chips and salsa using the raw jicama “chips” instead of tortilla chips.
