Jicama, Avocado and Tuna Salad

Jicama ….. Most of us have never heard of it. Recently I was introduced to this vegetable and I love it. Jicama is a crispy, sweet, edible root. In appearance, it resembles a turnip although not related. It is full of Vitamin C and fat free. It is low carb and what little carbs it has is mainly fiber. It is an incredible vegetable to add to your healthy lifestyle.

Here is a nice easy introduction to jicama:


1 large jicama peeled and grated (I then squeeze out any liquid)
1 red onion sliced thinly
Dash of sea salt
10-12 ounces tuna drained (I use the tuna in a pouch so there is no draining/ excess liquids)
1 avocado, cut into cubes
½ tablespoon of sesame oil


Put all into a bowl and toss to combine.


Stay tuned……..
