Ingredients

  • 1 cup pecan halves
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1 small (12 ounces) jicama root, peeled
  • 1 small head (8 ounces) chicory, leaves separated, washed, and dried

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Spread pecan halves on a baking pan. Toast until fragrant, about 10 minutes. Transfer nuts to a bowl to cool.

  2. Place mustard, maple syrup, lemon juice, and olive oil in the bowl of a food processor. Season with salt and pepper. Process until combined, about 1 minute. Set vinaigrette aside.
