Jicama, Cucumber & Lime Salad

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.

Ingredients:

1 large cucumber, peeled, seeded and julienned
1 Jicama, peeled and julienned
2 limes, the juice of
jalapeño pepper, diced
salt, to taste
chili pepper, to taste
cayenne pepper, to taste.

Directions:

1. Toss everything together and serve.  Easy!

  1. Looks so refreshing.

  3. Tried this last night and wow, surprisingly refreshing! When I first read the ingredients list, I thought, "There is no way this is yummy" and was I wrong. Something about jicama, cucumber, and lime juice.

    Thank you for sharing.

  4. Bookmarked!! I grew up eating jicama – with salt or with shrimp paste (Ewww to most people, but yummy to me)and a squeeze of calamansi (similar to lime but tiny). Jicama is a common veggie snack/street food type in the Philippines. Thanks to you, a new version and a new way to enjoy it :)
