Elena’s Lite Zesty Mexican Salad

August 9, 2017

E: My sweet parents visited a few weeks ago. My mom made this side salad which also has jicama and cucumber in it. You’ll see from the picture of my mother that we had the jicama,cucumber next to the salad bowl. We didn’t mix it in because my husband doesn’t like jicama or cucumber. Weirdo. But let me tell you, the jicama was crunchy and sweet. The tomatoes, cilantro and avocado were perfect for the tacos we were eating too. Enjoy.


1 avocado, sliced

3 roma tomatoes cut into wedges.

¼ cup red onion, thinly sliced

1 jicama, peeled and cubed

1 cucumber, peeled and cubed. 

1/2 cup cilantro, roughly chopped

1 lemon, juiced

salt and pepper


Mix all ingredients in a bowl. Serve as a side salad or use without jicama as topping for tacos. We used white onions, because I ran out of red, but the thing about salads is that anything goes.
