Check out this amazing and inexpensive Avocado,Jicama and Cucumber salad that looks very gourmet!

Ingredients

  • 2 C Cucumber about two medium
  • 2 C Jicama about 1/4 of a small jicama
  • Fist-full of Cilantro chopped
  • 2 Tbs Fresh Lime Juice
  • 1/8 tsp Sea Salt
  • 1/8 tsp Smoky Paprika 
  • 1/8 tsp Chili Powder
  • 2 Avocados





Instructions

  1. To prep the cucumber, leave the skin on if using an organic cucumber, otherwise peel the skin and discard. Slice the cucumber lengthwise, down the middle and scrape out the seeds (save these seeds and juice for a smoothie). Peel the cucumber with a vegetable peeler. Cut into short strips and place in a large mixing bowl. Peel the jicama with a large knife and julienne the Jicama. Alternatively, cut the cucumber and jicama into small cubes. Place into the bowl with the cucumbers.
  2. Mix the cucumber, jicama, cilantro(optional), lime juice, salt, paprika and chili powder together. Chill for at least 30 minutes before serving. Just prior to serving, slice one avocado into bite size pieces and gently toss in the salad. Use the second avocado for garnish, slicing the avocado into long thin pieces or add more bite size pieces, if desired. Garnish with more cilantro.
  3. Store for up to two days in a covered container in the refrigerator.
