Avocado, Orange and Jicama Salad

Jicama is most likely the healthiest vegetable that you’re currently not eating. Jicama is crunchy and sweet to the taste – these two properties alone fulfill my qualifiers for a yummy mid-day snack. Consider Jicama’s impressive profile – high in fiber, Vitamin C and heart-healthy Potassium. Jicama is ideally consumed raw with hummus or guacamole, in stir-fry, in a salad and more! Today, I direct you to this recipe from Food & Wine that uses Jicama in an Avocado and Orange Salad! Try this salad as a light option for a summer meal! Happy Cooking and Enjoy!
