Cool as a cuke and crunchy with jicama, this summery salad dressed with a splash of lime juice is a favorite with Debi Williams of Westminster, Colorado. “It’s especially great as a side with all kinds of Mexican foods,” she says.

Ingredients

  • 1 medium jicama, peeled and julienned
  • 1 small cucumber, seeded and julienned
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced red onion
  • 1 can (4 ounces) chopped green chilies
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated lime zest
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine the jicama, cucumber, onion and chilies. In a small bowl, whisk the remaining ingredients. Pour over jicama mixture; toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
