Ingredients
  • 4 ears fresh corn, unshucked
  • 1 large jicama, peeled and thinly julienned
  • 1 ripe mango, peeled and chopped into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro leaves

Directions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Put the ears of corn on a baking sheet and place in the oven for 45 minutes. Remove and let cool. When the corn has cooled shuck it and stand it on end. Using a sharp knife, run the blade down the cob to cut the kernels off. Rotate the cob and repeat until all the kernels have been cut off.

Combine the jicama, mango, red onion and cilantro in a large mixing bowl. Add the cooled corn, and toss with the vinaigrette. Chill until ready to serve.
