Jicama Chili Pepper Summer Salad

I get tired of salads very quickly. Luckily I've started experimenting with different ideas of salad...especially those without lettuce.

I've always been into throwing fruit into salads. Weirdly I know there are some people super against this. Well, get over it and try new things.

This is one of my newest favorites:



Jicama Chili Pepper Summer Salad

It's super easy to make, and for you chronic pain warriors out there, you can buy pre-cuts which make this salad super easy to put together.

Ingredients:

1 Jicama
4 Mangoes
2 Cucumbers
1t chili powder
2T lime juice
2 sprigs of mint roughly chopped

Peel the jicama with a potato peeler and then chop into 1" cubes. Peel and chop the mangoes into 1/2" cubes avoiding the large pit in the center.

Cut the cucumbers in half lengthwise, and then in half lengthwise again. Cut 1/4" slices of cucumber

Put all ingredients into a large bowl except the chili powder. Toss with the lime juice. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Lastly, sprinkle chili powder over the whole salad before serving.

Goes great with my Paleo Beef Enchiladas
