Summer Cucumber Jicama Salad

Rated as 4.89 out of 5 Stars

"This is a really great cucumber salad that's light and flavorful and makes a great starter! Tastes fine as it is, but can be salted and peppered to taste, if desired. Just remember to add all ingredients and mix before adding in the tomatoes, as they are extremely delicate and do not withstand stirring very well once they are cut."

I bought jicama for the first time, always thought it was a strange thing. But if you haven't tried it, this is a good recipe. The lemon tones down the jicama's sweetness. Nice balance of flavor...

I added chopped sweet yellow pepper for a little color and flavor. Loved this salad. Keeps well in fridge for several days.

very fresh, summery salad~also very good!! I added cilantro to it also

I didn't add the tomatoes and should have added half the zest. it was very refreshing.

Wow. Fresh and zesty. It’s like a cross between an apple and potatoe. This would be a great side for a steak or burgers.

Very nice combination. Thanks!

It came out wonderful. I was looking for a light, fresh tasting cucumber salad and this was just that!
