This salad is excellent with any meal. It is crisp and refreshing. I like it because you can prepare it well in advance of the meal.

We really liked this salad. Nice to have something different. I made this in the morning and it was still crisp and very delicious when the meal was ready that evening. The lime flavor was perfect on this, and the jicama and cucumber was a great combination. Thanks Bergy!!
