Refreshing, light, and easy to prepare, this salad makes a perfect summer side dish. Cucumber or melon are a delicious alternative or addition to the red bell peppers.
Recipe Ingredient Details:
1 small jicama (about 3/4 pound)
2 medium red bell peppers
Juice and zest of 1 lime
Juice of 1/2 orange
1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and very finely diced, or 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro (optional )
Peel jicama and cut into matchstick. (Hey, it kinda looks like hay!) Remove seeds and membranes from red bell peppers and cut into smaller matchsticks. Toss all ingredients together and adjust with salt to suit your taste. Serve right away or refrigerate salad until thoroughly chilled; toss again just before serving.
