Jicama Avocado Salad with Cilantro Lime Dressing

Need a cool, crunchy salad for summer? Try this one by Amber St. Peter of Fettle Vegan . Did you know that Jicama is packed with inulin- a fiber that promotes gut health? Just a one cup serving provides half of the daily recommended amount of vitamin C and is low-glycemic & a great option for a LCHF lifestyle!

Ingredients

1 lb. Jicama (about 3 cups), peeled & cut into matchsticks
1 small red onion, diced
2 avocados, halved & cubed
1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
2 limes, juiced
salt & pepper to taste

Directions

Peel the jicama, chop into matchsticks, and place into a large mixing bowl. Add diced onions, avocado, cilantro, lime juice, salt and pepper.
