Jicama Salad Recipe

Last Weekend I gave this one a try and it was a success. I doubled it and added some spinach to carry me through the work week as lunch , I added turkey breast and crackers for a complete lunch. But my friends last weekend loved this as well.

Jicama-Watercress-Avocado Salad with Spicy Citrus Vinaigrette, Serves 6-8.

Jicama, is also known as the mexican Turnip.  I think it tastes like a hybrid of an apple and a potato.  Sweet, refreshing, crunchy and a little starchy. It is a good source of Potassium, Fiber and Vitamin C. This salad is a sort of Thai fusion using ingredients that are not hard to find.  Dressing has a small spicy kick from the Hot Chile oil, but not too intense.  Avocado and Peanuts make it a meal of it’s own, filling enough for a summer lunch or dinner.
