Check out this Jicama Chayote Mango Salad—it’s easy to prepare! The list of ingredients might be slightly unfamiliar to you if you live in Canada but should be readily available in local grocery stores.
The slaw-style salad is inexpensive, very nutritious and honestly a nice change from the standard go-to salads you might typically make.
If you’ve never seen a Jicama before it kind of looks like a huge potato and tastes a little like a raw potato or an Asian pear.
A Chayote squash has similar characteristics to an apple.
An Ataulfo mango, if purchased in season, is incredibly delicious and is the perfect touch of natural sweetness to go with this beautiful fresh salad.
This recipe was published a couple of years ago with the ingredients tossed with Avocado Coconut Dip/Mayo. It doesn’t even need that special dressing.
It’s incredible with freshly squeezed lime juice! The combination of fresh ingredients is what makes this salad so good—just as it is!
