Jicama Salad with Peanut Curry Sauce

If you haven’t had a jicama, you are missing out on a real treat. Jicama has a texture somewhere between a potato and a pear, with a slight sweetness. It is 86-90% water and is very hydrating. It has a very mild taste..somewhat reminiscent of apples and makes a great addition to salads. High in vitamin C and with no fat, one cup contains only 45 calories. Enjoy it in this salad with a flavorful curry peanut sauce. This is a summer favorite around our house.

    Hi There!!
    Great site! 🙂 I want to try this recipe, but I have a question. What kind of pea pods are you using? Snow peas? Sugar Snap Peas? Green Beans?

      I used peas, not beans. You can use either sugar snap peas or snow peas. Cheers!

    Loved this recipe. Nice crisp and refreshing summer dish. Had to substitute the nuts, due to guest allergy, however I know nutty flavours and curry go very well together. Next time I will use the Cashews for a change.
