This light and refreshing salad is the perfect low carb accompaniment to roast meat or fish. If you haven't tried jicama before, it's a Mexican root vegetable that looks a little like a swede (or rutabaga), but has the texture of a crisp apple. One cup of cubed jicama contains 5g net carbs – so it's a pretty useful low carb vegetable!

How to Make a Jicama and Strawberry Salad
Peel and dice the jicama, and shred some lettuce leaves.
Add some sliced green onions, and then hull and slice some strawberries. I love my huller tool!
Whisk together some extra virgin olive oil, lemon juice, salt and black pepper, then pour it over the salad.
Oh – and if you live in the US, check out how you can get a bottle of quality EVOO for just $1! It’s such an awesome deal!
Toss to mix and store in the fridge until ready to serve.
I absolutely love the combination of flavors! I often pair jicama with citrus (like my Jicama Sticks with Lime and Chipotle) but I think that I've found a new favorite!
