If you’re looking for a light, healthy and flavorful salad that’s a welcome change from traditional lettuce-based salads, give this jicama avocado salad a try. Simple to prepare and providing a delicious combination of ingredients, including jicama, carrots, red onion, avocado, grated Cabot cheddar cheese, cumin, honey and lime juice, this jicama salad is sure to get added to your regular salad rotation! Enjoy for a satisfying lunch or as a side salad for dinner and then feel free to share the recipe with family and friends on Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, and Twitter.
For 4 servings, cut jicama and carrots into matchsticks in a food processor with julienne blade or by hand. This will yield approximately 4 cups of jicama and 2 cups of carrots. Thinly slice red onion to yield about ½ cup.
Next, whisk together the lime juice, honey, salt and cumin in a large bowl. Add the jicama, carrots, red onion and chopped fresh cilantro, tossing to mix everything together.
If serving four, mound the mixture onto four plates and top each with some of the grated Cabot Lite50 Sharp Cheddar (or Cabot Lite75 Sharp Cheddar) and diced avocado. Otherwise portion out for the desired amount of servings of salad and place the rest in the refrigerator.
