Hold up -- do you know about jicama? No? Well, let me introduce you.
Jicama is a root vegetable that is similar to a potato. You peel off its thick skin and can use it as a dipper for appetizers or as an ingredient in salads or stir fry.
Now that introductions are out of the way, let's get back to this Jicama Salad...
There are so many colorful veggies in this salad that it just makes me happy looking at it. However, it doesn't taste like it's a healthy bowl of veggies that you have to scarf down so you can enjoy the rest of your meal.
No, this salad is refreshing, tasty, and interesting. There is no lettuce, so it doesn't feel like rabbit food. Now don't get me wrong, I love salads, but sometimes I get tired of the same old lettuce & vinaigrette bit.
This Jicama Salad changes things up and pairs well as a side dish for almost anything -- fish, chicken, steak, tofu, you name it.
My favorite is to serve a grilled piece of fish or chicken on top and enjoy!
Alright, now go pick up some jicama and all your other veggies and keep this salad in your fridge all week for a refreshing, healthy, and tasty side.
