Here in Austin, Texas it may be well into fall but we’re still experiencing days with highs in the 80s. It’s early November and it was just a few weeks ago that we put in our fall garden. After a day at the farmers’ market and putting in a garden outside, it was time for something cooling. Who knew that jicama, apple, and cucumber would be so delicious together? They are. Believe me. Or try it yourself. I might put orange slices in this mix next time. The crispness was great and the sweetness that the apple has brought it all together.
Jicama, Cucumber, and Apple Salad
1 small cucumber
1 small crisp and sweet apple (like gala or pink lady)
juice of 1 lime
sprinkle of salt
dash of chili powder
Peel all of the ingredients. Cut each into matchstick-style slices. Toss in a bowl with the lime and salt. Add chili powder a tiny bit at a time, use more if you like it spicy!
