Amazing Salad: Grapefruit and Jicama Salad at Out the Door, San Francisco

Usually, I write posts about an entire meal and the experience, but in this case, I’m concentrating on one dish because it was just that good.

A couple weeks ago, I was in San Francisco on a business trip and ate at Out the Door (OTD) in Westfield Center.  For those who are not familiar, this is an outpost of the famed Slanted Door restaurant owned by Charles Phan.  I devoured the grapefruit and jicama salad with red cabbage, carrots and candied pecans.  It was a heaven of crunchiness from the jicama to the cabbage, carrots and sweet pecans.  The balance of salty and sweet didn’t go unnoticed.  If you want to sample Chef Phan’s cuisine, but can’t make it into the Slanted Door, try OTD and definitely this salad.
