Jicama Salad

Jicama is a delightfully sweet and crunchy root veggie, choke full of vitamins and minerals. It’s high in fiber so it can help promote weight loss and digestion.

If you’ve never tried it, imagine the texture of an Asian pear crossed with the flavor of sweet celery. It’s lovely!

Paired with this tangy, creamy dressing, this sweet/savory salad is oil-free, gluten-free, sugar-free, and of course, vegan!
