Tomato-Jicama Salad with Avocado-Chipotle Dressing
To prepare dressing: Combine oil and garlic in a small skillet over medium-low heat. Let sizzle for 30 seconds, then transfer to a food processor or high-speed blender. Add avocado, cilantro, lime zest, lime juice, honey, ground chipotle to taste, salt, and pepper; process until smooth. Add water, 1 Tbsp. at a time, to achieve desired consistency.Advertisement
To prepare salad: Combine tomatoes and jicama in a large bowl. Add the dressing and toss to coat. Sprinkle with cilantro and pepitas. Serve immediately.
Tip: Pepitas are pumpkin seeds, but they differ from the seeds you scrape out of your Halloween pumpkin: they come from certain varieties of pumpkins that produce seeds without a tough outer hull. You can find pepitas in bulk bins in natural-foods stores and large supermarkets, and online at nuts.com and elsewhere.
