Carrot and Jicama Salad Recipe

This crunchy and tasty salad is best made with a good vegetable shredder called a mandolin. If you don't have a mandolin but want to buy one, try your local asian food supermarket. Almost all Korean supermarkets carry an excellent one for around twenty-five dollars.

Jicama is a white-fleshed root vegetable that is a good source of vitamin C. It adds a great crunchy component to salads.


3 small carrots, peeled and shredded
1 small to medium jicama, peeled and shredded
1 yellow or red bell pepper, seeded and sliced into thin strips
1/4 red onion, sliced into thin strips
1 cup of chopped cilantro
House Dressing, to taste


Combine all ingredients in a large salad bowl, add house dressing, and toss. Enjoy this crunchy, healthy, and yummy salad.
