Grill half a dozen ears of fresh tender sweet corn on an open flame for a few moments until you get a little bit of browning. Cut the corn off the cob and place in a bowl.

Peel, wash, and cube half a pound of  jicama root. 

Finely chop one bunch of scallions,  one serano pepper, and one full bunch of cilantro.

Squeeze one full sour orange into the mix. Salt to taste. Toss and serve.
