This is a delightful salad for summer meals or anytime you have leftover tandoori chicken. In fact, I recommend you make a double recipe of the chicken and use it for the salad the next day. It makes a delicious filling for a pita sandwich, topped with shredded lettuce and a dollop of yogurt. It is also a great picnic dish.
1. Toss together chicken, jicama, green onions, cilantro, sesame seeds, lime juice and chilies, if using. Chill for at least 1 hour or for up to 3 hours.
2. Serve over lettuce or in lettuce “cups.”
To toast sesame seeds: Spread in a dry skillet and toast on medium heat until starting to color, 3 to 4 minutes. Shake pan periodically to toast evenly. Seeds will turn slightly darker as they cool.
