You'll need a large jicama to get long graceful-looking strips. But don't worry about buying too much: The leftovers can be used as a low-fat snack or tidbit. Put the remaining jicama strips on a plate with lime wedges and a pepper shaker filled with chili powder. To eat, squeeze a lime wedge over the slices and then spinkle with chili powder.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine the first 4 ingredients in a small bowl; stir well.

Step 2

Combine 3 tablespoons juice mixture, mango, onion, chile, and mint in a bowl, and stir well. Set mango mixture aside.

Step 3

Separate endive into leaves, reserving 12 outer leaves. Thinly slice the remaining leaves; set aside.

Step 4

Remove meat from lobster tails and claws; set claw meat aside. Thinly slice tail meat; set aside.

Step 5

Drizzle 1/3 cup juice mixture over the salad greens, and toss gently to coat. Divide greens evenly among 4 salad plates. Arrange 3 endive leaves, 8 jicama strips, and 6 asparagus spears on 1 side of each plate. Arrange claw meat on other side of each plate. Spoon 1/2 cup mango mixture in center of each plate. Arrange tail slices, overlapping, on top of mango mixture. Drizzle remaining juice mixture evenly over lobster meat. Sprinkle pepper over salads, and garnish with sliced endive.
