Jicama Salad With Cucumber and Lime

READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by PaulaG

This recipe is a nice change from the typical green salad. A great salad for summer cookouts. Goes very well with spicy grilled beef dishes. The cook time is the standing time. This is a Whole Foods recipe that called for chili powder and I used this with ground chiptole powder.

I used to eat jicama and cucumber like this in Mazatlan all the time! I just cut it into sticks, squeezed the lime over it and sprinkled the seasoning and ate away! Made for ZWT 9
