Jicama is a root vegetable that is often overlooked. It has the flavor of a potato with the texture of an apple. We decided to experiment with the vegetable, and it turned out to be quite refreshing! This salad compliments grilled meat or fish nicely.


1/2 jicama, peeled and julienned
1 cup roasted corn
1 soft avocado, cubed
Juice of 1/2 a lime
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon black pepper


Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl. Mix until the avocado begins to break down and turns the jicama green. Add various seasonings according to taste preferences.
