Jicama, Radish and Avocado Juli

Although this dish is in the "Deep Winter" section, eating it makes me think of a summer BBQ, a good accompaniment with Dad's BBQ'd chicken (hint hint)!! Kit, Lonnie and I really liked this salad. I think what makes it great is that it isn't your typical lettuce based salad. The radish was suprisingly subtle and the jicama/avocado gave it some good texture. Am I the only one or does anyone else struggle with finding a vegetable to go with your typical mexican meal? This is the winner!

I love how Lola is in the background looking like she wants to eat the whole plate! Jessica

She did want to eat it! We gave her some jicama and radish to try, but she wasn't a big fan. Did I mention that she is NOT allowed on the couch..that little monster!! Juli

Ooooh, thanks for the recipe. I'm going to try it. I love crunchy salads better than leafy salads.
