Jicama Salad with Cucumber and Lime

Serves 4

A nice change from the standard green salad, this crunchy jicama side dish incorporates chopped cucumber, freshly squeezed lime juice and a dash of salt and spice. The longer the salad sits, the more flavorful it becomes. A perfect compliment to fresh grilled fish or a plate of black beans and rice.

  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1/8 teaspoon chile powder
  • 1 medium cucumber, peeled, seeded, and cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 1 medium jicama, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • dash of cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
