2avocadospeeled and cut into chunks
1cupjicamapeeled and diced finely
2tablespoonsred onionchopped finely
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.
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.
