This is one of the most popular salads at Daquari Dicks in Puerto Vallarta!
Combine and mix well:
1/2 cup Jicama sliced into batonettes (alternate bean sprouts)
1/4 cup cilantro leaves
1/2 cup green onions, cut on the bias
1/4 cup slivered almonds
1/4 cup sesame seeds, lightly toasted
1/4 cup snow peas, lightly cooked and sliced diagonally
1 lb chicken breast, poached slowly, cooled and shredded by hand
* Batonettes: stick shapes, longer and thinker than battons (about twice as long and thick as a match stick). If using bean sprouts instead, blanch them by pouring boiling water over them and then dunking them in an ice bath. Dry well.
