Pear Jicama And Cucumber Salad

  1 rater(s)

Jicama is an underrated root vegetable that has tan skin and bright white flesh. It’s a little crisper than an apple with a mellower flavor, so it takes on bold flavors like lime juice, pepper, chili powder, cayenne, and other seasonings. Jicama adds beautiful texture to salads, almost like a healthy crouton, but this salad features it, alongside cucumbers and pears. This salad isn’t traditional, so we hope you like this refreshing take.
