Jicama has a sweet and nutty flavour which goes perfectly with sweet potato in this potato salad. It’s worth taking the time to make your own mayonnaise for this recipe, as this way you’ll know it’s made from quality ingredients without any refined vegetable oils.
Jicama is a fantastic alternative to potato if you follow a low-carb or keto lifestyle. It has a sweet nutty flavour and can be eaten raw or cooked. Like potatoes, jicama is a rich source of vitamin C, as well as inulin which is great for gut health.
This colourful salad is light, fresh and zingy. The trick, I believe, is to try to cut all of the ingredients into similar-sized juliennes or matchsticks. You can get some great julienne peelers these days that will make light work of the job. I love serving this with chicken.
A Mexican friend taught me this recipe and I love it. It’s just as good with only cucumber if you can’t get your hands on jicama. I’ve added celery too because I love the freshness. In the original recipe my friend used a tablespoon of mayonnaise — you can definitely add that too!
