Watermelon Jicama Salad

by Amanda Natividad, NatureBox Editor

Let’s face it — even if you’ll have the time during this long weekend to put together a time-intensive dish, you’d probably rather relax in the sunshine, at the beach, or just with your loved ones, wherever that may be.

As if juicy watermelon and jicama couldn’t get anymore refreshing, I added some freshly-squeezed lime juice and a dash of salt for a perfect, sunny-day treat. Enjoy!

Ingredients:

  • 1 regular-sized seedless watermelon (about 6-7 pounds), roughly chopped
  • 3 medium-sized jicama, chopped into sticks or chunks
  • Juice of 3 limes
  • 2 pinches kosher salt

Directions:

1. In a large bowl, gentle toss together the watermelon and jicama chunks, along with the lime juice and salt. Serve cold.

Note: You can add more or less lime juice and salt, to taste. You can also make this a day ahead of serving!
