Jicama, Cucumber & Lime Salad

File this recipe under "who would have guessed it".  I have never even tried Jicama before but this was one of the great recipes that our rafting outfitter sent along with our food package (on my Grand Canyon trip) .  I like the vegetable julienned so I have presented the recipe that way.  You could simply slice it into thin 1/2 inch strips.  I also added the jalapeño pepper.   I made this salad a couple of times on the trip and it was a hit with everyone!  Jicama is now on my fav list.


1 large cucumber, peeled, seeded and julienned
1 Jicama, peeled and julienned
2 limes, the juice of
jalapeño pepper, diced
salt, to taste
chili pepper, to taste
cayenne pepper, to taste.


1. Toss everything together and serve.  Easy!


  1. Looks so refreshing.

    Just came across your blog and now I am a follower. Hope you'll come by
    I also feature bloggers on Friday and would love to feature you in the next week or so.....I would like to use one of your photos when I do.

  2. Tried this last night and wow, surprisingly refreshing! When I first read the ingredients list, I thought, "There is no way this is yummy" and was I wrong. Something about jicama, cucumber, and lime juice.

    Thank you for sharing.
