Carrot, Cucumber, Jicama Slaw with Citrus Yogurt Dressing

Adapted from Mariel’s Kitchen by Mariel Hemingway

I like the combination of these vegetables in a slaw.  The cool crisp cucumber with the sweet crunchy carrot and sweet-savory jicama add depth to both flavor and texture.  The tangy dressing with burst of citrus help keep this slaw light and refreshing.

Mango Jicama Sticks

Adapted from The Splendid Table’s How to Eat Weekends by Lynne Rossetto Kasper and Sally Swift

This is a refreshing appetizer, snack, or even side dish and great for picnics and BBQs.  The jicama is a hearty, crunchy vegetable, so it holds up well in the dressing.  The lime juice helps to keep it from turning brown.  Making this dish a bit ahead of time allows the jicama and mango to absorb the flavoring.

Avocado and Jicama Salad

Adapted from Bon Appétit

In my effort to try more of the recipes from the cooking magazines I get, here’s another recipe from the latest Bon Appétit magazine.  I didn’t realize how much I liked jicama until I made this salad.  Crunchy, slightly sweet, and refreshing.  I forgot to look for avocado oil, so I’ll have to make it again to taste the difference.  If you cannot find avocado oil, or just don’t have it, good quality extra virgin olive oil will work.
