Jicama Salad

Filed under: Salads, Vegetables, Vegetarian — blackteapot @ 3:08 am

The jicama has a sweet turnip taste to it, and is amazing in salads. It is crisp, and goes well with the apple. Jicama can be found at most grocery stores now, and is best stored in a cooler area such as a pantry, where it will last about a month. Do not store them in the refrigerator, as the colder temperature will damage it.

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Serves: 6

  • 2 cups julienned jicama
  • 1 cup julienned granny smith apple
  • 1 cup julienned cucumber
  • 1 cup julienned carrot
  • 2 green onions, julienned
  • 1 large lemon, juiced
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp fresh cracked black pepper

In a large bowl, whisk together lemon juice, olive oil, salt, and pepper. Add in remaining ingredients, and toss well. Refrigerate until serving.
