It's time to get patriotic with this colorful salsa! This is a wonderful combination of jicama, red bell pepper, and blueberries, all tossed in a light vinaigrette. If you're not familiar with jicama, it's a root vegetable that can be eaten raw. Its natural white color and crunchy texture make it ideal for this dish. Check out all my low carb jicama recipes!
How to Make a Keto Red, White, Blue Salsa
Remove the seeds from a red bell pepper and dice it.
Add it to a bowl, together with some fresh blueberries.
Next, prepare the jicama. You can often buy it ready prepared in sticks – which are a great substitute for chips – but if you want to make the stars it won't be so useful for this recipe. Peel the jicama (I actually only used about half of it), and cut it into slices. Use a small star-shaped metal cookie cutter to create a few stars.
Dice the rest of the slices and add them to the bowl.
To make the vinaigrette, simply combine extra virgin olive oil and white wine vinegar in a dressing shaker.
Shake vigorously so that it emulsifies, then pour over the salsa (you might not need all of it, depending on how “wet” you like it!). Season with salt and pepper then toss to combine.
Transfer to a serving dish, top with the jicama stars, then cover and store in the fridge until required.
