Use a vegetable peeler or a Flat Blade in a Spiralizerto to cut into long strips off the cucumber to form ribbons. Curl the smoked salmon ad cucumber ribbons onto your plates. Fill in the plate with pea shoots and microgreens.
Finish the dish with lemon zest, edible flowers, and a scant sprinkle of salt.
Jicama Slices – Use a mandolin to slice the jicama into really thin tortillas. Try to use the thinnest setting whenever possible to get the best results. If you want to know how to thinly slice jicama, this is really the best way. A knife is not recommended because it will be too thick and will not bend well.
Plate Jicama or crostinis and enjoy!
** To make a Jicama “wrap or taco” add small dollops of the hummus mixture and cranberry sauce, some of the salad mixture and salmon. Roll or fold and enjoy!!
