Cherry and jicama salad

Cherry and jicama salad


565g red cherries, halved and pitted
450gm jicama (from 1 jicama root) peeled and cut into batons
1 small handful torn fresh basil leaves
110g macadamia nuts, roughly crushed
Zest of 1 lime plus fresh lime juice to taste (from 1 to 2 limes)
Extra-virgin olive oil, for drizzling
Kosher salt


  1. In a large salad or mixing bowl, combine cherries, jicama, basil, and macadamia nuts.

  2. Add lime zest and drizzle on just enough olive oil to lightly coat all ingredients. Toss well.

  3. Add lime juice to taste (should be bright and tart enough to contrast with the sweet cherries and rich olive oil), tossing well, and season with salt. Serve.
