- sweet red onion
- yellow bell pepper
- green jalapeño
- ripe red jalapeños
- golden hominy
- fresh sage
To prevent oxidation the cut jicama was soaked in water and vinegar until ready to use.
I changed my mind about using sweet corn and used golden hominy instead.
Cilantro would have been a perfectly appropriate ingredient in the salad but I decided to use fresh sage instead. Fresh sage doesn’t taste anything like the dried sage in your spice cabinet. It has a hint of mintiness. In fact, if you have grown your own sage you may have noticed that it has a square stem like other plants in the mint family.
I decided to go ahead and use peppermint as well, but since Faye doesn’t care for mint I only added it to my portion.
