Lite, Tasty, Refreshing Jicama Salad

My Aunt Cindie brought this tasty salad to our Memorial Day Party.  It was lite, crunchy, and refreshing.  This would make a nice addition to your summer BBQ parties.  Give it a try!

And, let me know if you have any great recipes for refreshing summer salads.


This recipe yields about four ½ cup servings.


You will need:


1 small jicama, about ½ pound

1 small red bell pepper, diced

2 green onions, finely chopped

2 TBSP fresh cilantro, chopped



1 TBSP Olive Oil

1TBSP fresh lime juice

¼ tsp. fresh lime zest

1 TBSP fresh orange juice

½ tsp. grated fresh orange zest

1 tsp. honey

¼ tsp. chili powder

1/8 tsp. ground white pepper


Peel the jicama and cut into thin strips.

In a large bowl, mix together all the salad ingredients.

In a small bowl, whisk together the dressing ingredients.

Pour dressing over the salad mixture and toss to coat.

Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes before serving.

Serve and Enjoy!

  2. This is another great summer recipe. It looks delicious. I’ve never used a jicama in any recipe before but I’m always willing to try something new.
