Jicama Dill Avocado Salad
I am in the midst of a love affair. Completely head over heels swept away. And by a fruit, no less. The object of my affection? The avocado. The Haas avocado to be precise. And it is the perfect time of year to grab a few of these beauties and have your way with them!
The Haas avocado is a California avocado that has a pebbly skin that turns a dark purple as it ripens. Full of nutrients, the avocado is considered to be a heart healthy fat. Not only is it full of mono-unsaturated fat, it also contains Vitamin K, Folate, Potassium, Lutein, Magnesium, B6, Vitamins C and E, and a significant amount of healthy fiber.
In raw food recipes, avocado’s are a wonderful substitute for butter, cream and other high fat dairy products. Avocados combine with cacao to make a wonderful Cacao Mousse, love other fruits and vegetables in salads like my favorite, Avocado, Mango Broccoli Salad, and sub in for mayo, in today’s recipe for Jicama Dill Avocado Salad which replicates your favorite egg salad recipe. This tasty raw food salad is hearty enough for a main dish.

The recipe looks easy and great, I tried to make mayo and had a hard time to get smooth consistency with my vitamix, I don’t
Know what was a problem but my mayo isn’t smooth like a regular mayo, I had cashes soaked over night. Don’t know what I did wrong.

Oh my gosh…there are bunches here. And you could always leave out the onions, etc.

This looks delicious although I’m allergic to raw celery as well as raw garlic and onions. I’m having so much difficulty finding ANY raw food recipes that don’t contain at least one of the three. *sigh*

The “mayo” is the first recipe listed above under the title, “Mayo”.
