Jicama, Mango and Red Onion Salad

Jicama, Mango and Red Onion Salad

A delicious and simple salad with only a few ingredients  Jicama, Mango and Red Onion.  Better tasting if made a day ahead, and using a very fresh and crunchy Jicama, and almost green/hard mangoes.

WP_20140909_005If you haven`t tried a jicama yet, I will say it is a hybrid between a raw potato and a chayote or a guinea arrowroot (lerenes).  It has no specific flavor at all, and can be easily use in any dish cooked or raw, like in this salad.

This is how a jicama looks like, and you can find it in all Latinos markets at a very low price.


For the Jicama, Mango and Red Onions Salad:

1 big  jicama

1 big hard mango

1 big red onion

For the Salad Dressing:

1/4 c orange juice

1/4 c lime juice

1/4 c olive oil

1 t dijon mustard

salt and  pepper to taste


Thinly slice or use a  Mandoline slicer, to cut the 3 mayor ingredients, the jicama, mango and onion.  Mix the dressing and add.

WP_20140909_002Let it rest in the cooler before serving,  preferably one day ahead.  Use as a side dish, or alone. Tangy, sweet and sour delicious salad, that everyone will love.
