File this recipe under “who would have guessed it”. I have never even tried Jicama before but this was one of the great recipes that our rafting outfitter sent along with our food package (on my Grand Canyon trip) . I like the vegetable julienned so I have presented the recipe that way. You could simply slice it into thin 1/2 inch strips. I also added the jalapeño pepper. I made this salad a couple of times on the trip and it was a hit with everyone! Jicama is now on my fav list.
1 large cucumber, peeled, seeded and julienned
1 Jicama, peeled and julienned
2 limes, the juice of
1 jalapeño pepper, diced
salt, to taste
chili pepper, to taste
cayenne pepper, to taste.
1. Toss everything together and serve. Easy!
