Avocado and Jicama Salad


I get bored of traditional green salads and especially hate salad leftovers. But this salad tastes even better the longer it sits. You can toss it with the dressing and it won’t wilt, like lettuce does.


This salad is unique with some of my favorite ingredients combined together. The jicama is sweet and crisp and pairs nicely with smooth, rich avocado.

Rich avocado, crisp jicama, crunchy radish, and chewy pumpkin seeds provide an array of textures. The sweet dressing is creamy made with sour cream and fresh orange and lemon juice. And the lemon pepper in the dressing adds a subtle flavor boost.
