RECIPE: Jicama Salad

Looking for a simple salad that’s not the same ole, same ole?  Look no further.  If you have access to Trader Joe’s cubed Jicama (hick-uh-muh), it won’t get much easier than this! If not, you could swap apples and still get a super-duper, fresh, new salad or ‘work for it’ and peel n’ chop your own jicama!

Organicfacts.net tells us jicama’s health benefits are “derived from the unique mixture of vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients, and other organic compounds, including dietary fiber, vitamin C, vitamin E, folate, vitamin B6, pantothenic acid, potassium, magnesium, manganese, copper, iron, and a small amount of protein.”

So nosh on this and let the healing begin!

INGREDIENTS:

1 can corn (or fresh summer corn if it’s summah and you have it)

1/2 cup chopped jicama

1/4 cup chopped cilantro

Juice of 2-3 limes

3 Tbsp olive oil

Sea Salt and ground pepper to taste

1/8 cup diced red onion (optional)

 

Option to serve atop bed of spinach to get your extras greens on!
