Jicama & Orange Salad

jicama salad

My neighbor makes this and it is EXCEPTIONAL! I improvised this afternoon and it turned out pretty good.

Jicama & Orange Salad

-1 large jicama- the size of a cantaloupe (peeled & chopped up into cubes)
-5 clementine oranges (3 for the salad and 2 for the dressing)
-handful of chopped cilantro
-juice of 1 lime
-3/4 teaspoon chili powder
-salt to taste

Mix it all up and devour. It’s very crunchy and the sweet spicy salty balance is the BOMB. I have the aftertaste in my mouth right now and it is delightful. I plan on serving it with some grilled chicken tonight!

***You could use regular oranges, I just didn’t have any! Because these clementines were soo small, I didn’t bother cutting them into segments. It tasted just fine!***
