This is an incredibly popular and easy appetizer to make. It's great for the vegetarians that are vastly increasing in numbers. I like it because it has crunch and zing. —Judy at My Well Seasoned Life

  • Makes About 20 pieces
  • 1 Large jicama. Try to find one that is squat so that it's easier to slice
  • 1 Ripe mango diced
  • 1/4 Red onion diced (about 1/2 cup)
  • 1/2 red pepper diced
  • 1 lime zested and juiced
  • 1/2-1 serrano pepper finely chopped (the amount will depend on how spicy you want the salsa
  • 1/4 cup cilantro coarsely chopped
  • salt and pepper
In This Recipe
  1. Peel the jicama. The easiest way is to cut the top and bottom so that the orb lies flat on the table. With a sharp paring knife, start from the top and shave off the outside skin.
  2. Trim the round jicama so that it looks like a white brick. Then slice into 1/4 inch strips. Cut the slices into triangles.
  3. In a medium bowl add the mango, onion, pepper, lime zest and juice. Toss. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper. Add the diced avocado.
  4. Place triangles on serving dish. Place a generous tablespoon of the mango salsa on the triangles.
