OH, MAN! This was FABULOUS! We all absolutely loved the lime and red pepper with the fruit and jicama. What a sensational blend of flavors! I couldn't find red jalapenos, though, and it needed some red...so I used thinly sliced red peppers.

A refeshing salad. I think it tastes so much better once it sits for 1 hour before you serve. A keeper for sure.

5 star all the way. Great color presentation and the different shapes of the ingredients add to the eye appeal. Taste appeat? I wish you could have seen this salad disappear. I served it withFragrant Lamb Stew with Dried Fruits Fragrant Lamb Stew with dried fruits, rice steamed carrots & steamed Brussels Sprouts. The salad was so refreshing and even with the jalapeno & chili flakes was not hot. I used hot ground chili in place of the ground red pepper. I could not get red Jalapeno so used green finely chopped. Thanks Meanchef for a great salad recipe.

This salad was wonderful. I took it to a Cinco de Mayo party and everyone loved it and most went back for seconds. I made a second batch today because there were no left overs for me to enjoy.

Gorgeous, thank you! I brought this to a raw food potluck tonight and it was just perfect! I used red pepper as red jalapeno was unavailable today, but I will try it next with the heat.

Really good flavor--added a bit extra cayenne to turn up the heat. My boyfriend's new favorite dish!
