Pomelo, Jicama & Fig Salad

When I came across fresh figs and a pomelo on the same visit to the supermarket I knew they belonged together and I began envisioning this salad. Salad ingredients were:

  • pomelo
  • jicama
  • fermented cabbage
  • candied red Serrano chiles
  • fermented red onions
  • feta cheese
  • spinach
  • figs

The salad was served on a bed of torn fresh spinach.

The candied Serranos with their sweet heat were the behind the scenes star of this delicious salad. The only other ingredient I might have included if it hadn’t slipped my mind would have been a chiffonade of mint sprinkled on top, just on my own salad though since Faye doesn’t care for fresh mint.

The mint is making a nice comeback after going to seed late this summer.
