California Bean Sprout Salad

1 head Romaine lettuce, small head
1 head leaf lettuce, small head
1 cup jicama, cut in 2-inch strips
2 cups bean sprouts, cooked
1/4 cup cider vinegar
1 teaspoon sugar
1/4 tablespoon salt
1/2 cup cucumber, diced
1 red pepper
1 avocado, cubed
1 hard-boiled egg
1 teaspoon sesame oil, optional

Prepare the red pepper by washing, cut in half and remove seeds
and membranes, cut into small strips.

Wash lettuce, spin or blot dry and place in plastic bag with a
paper towel; seal bag and refrigerate.

Cut peeled jicama into strips such as French fry-size and refrigerate
until serving time.

In saucepan, bring 1 quart water to a boil. Add the bean sprouts
and blanch for two minutes. Remove and run under cold water briefly.
Immerse in a bowl of ice water for one minute, drain well. Mash
boiled egg or put through a sieve. Refrigerate.

In a small bowl, blend vinegar, sugar and salt. In a large bowl,
combine bean sprouts, diced cucumbers, strips of red pepper and
avocado cubes. Add 1 teaspoon of sesame oil if desired and blend
this mixture well.

Add the vinegar mixture to the bean sprout mixture and toss to
combine. Cover bowl tightly and refrigerate 1 hour.

To serve, tear lettuce into bite sized pieces and divide equally
among 4-6 salad plates. Top with the sprout mixture, sprinkle with
the chopped egg, and arrange the jicama strips on one side of salad.
Needs no further dressing to be a delicious and healthy dish.
