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.

    No peanuts (allergies) . I just made a variation of this salad with avocado curry sauce, shallots and a sprnkle of trail mix nuts/raisins. Delicious!!! Thank you! Oh and first time trying jicama.. woo hoo ..

    Maybe you needed to blend it better?

    This was the first raw meal I made from this site (aside from the raw brownies I made last night…), and it was so satisfying!! Peeling the jicama and opening the coconut were very difficult, but definitely worth it! My sauce came out chunkier than in the photo though, I’m wondering if mine needed more coconut meat?

    OH…and a lil fresh ginger in the peanut sauce.

    I think this would be really good with jalapeno’s and olives :)–AND I presume everyone knows to use RAW PEANUTS???

    I had this for lunch today (using the above posters substitute of cashews). It’s excellent! I almost wonder if a small type of nut or seed would be good in this? It’s excellent as is, but my mind keeps telling me there is a seed or nut missing – not for the texture, but the flavor …. I just hope my mind tells me what it is!

    This was a big winner for lunch today. We wee out of raw peanuts so I used Cashews. Yummy.
