Ingredients

  • 2 avocados peeled and cut into chunks
  • 1 cup jicama peeled and diced finely
  • 1/4 cup cilantro chopped finely
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons red onion chopped finely
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 jalapeno to taste

Instructions

  • Add the chopped avocado, jicama, cilantro, lime juice, onion, salt and cumin to a bowl, and mix gently to combine.
  • Taste, and adjust salt and lime juice to taste.
  • Add jalapeno to taste, and mix to combine. The heat of jalapenos varies greatly, so I like to start small and add, keeping in mind that the oils in the peppers will be released and the spiciness will increase after a few hours.
  • Serve as a topping to meats or salads, or as a dip for thinly sliced veggies or almond flour crackers.

Notes

Jicama is a root vegetable popular in Mexico, so if your regular grocery store doesn't carry them, try a store that carries a lot of Mexican imports. It's high fiber content lowers the total net carbs.
